After seeing his amazing set on Oct 2 in Ottawa.
The begining track and lead single is “Willow Tree”.
Upon hearing it, he sounds abit like Neil Young.
The song itself is about death and is very sad and emotional listening to it.
From one minute he goes from Folk (Willow Tree), to Rock (Inside the Molecules) to Electronica (Phantom Anthills) and to the weird (TMNT Mask).
He isn’t just a one genre artist.
Lots of emotional he has put on the record.
To me he doesn’t sound like Neil Young. I would say he is the Canadian version of Beck.
