- One it was a report from 1967 of a UFO encounter in the Manitoba area. (Check it out on Wikipedia)
- Two its the fourth album by Ottawa’s Jim Bryson with help from The Weakerthans.
The album dropped on October 19th.
On October 18th I went to Raw Sugar Cafe for the listening party for the album.
Truly one of Ottawa’s best performing musician and songwriters at the moment.
Its been three years since he released Where the Bungalows Roam (Review).
The album is not just about the incident that happened in 1967.
Being recorded in Falcon Lake, Manitoba with The Weakerthans, I am really surprised on the ten tracks having more of a upbeat rock feel.
The songs are more about Jim’s personal experience and the journeys he endeavors.
Surprised to hear the lovely Jill Barber in the song Freeways in The Frontyards
John K Samson does sing backup in some of the tracks in the album.
Metal Girls one of my favorite since I remember him singing it live and getting the audience to sing the chorus part.
While the final track Anything At All goes all epic crazy with the guitar distortion sounding like the UFO has lifted off or crashed.
Not disappointed at all with the album and the whole wait was worth it.
Get it on vinyl, it sounds ten times better!
