The Fretless could feasibly be an important group, a cultural force that could, as they definitely intend, reach many uninitiated ears. It is what happened to me when I saw them live, so what better than a sizzling live album to convert others? Raw and Exciting from start to finish.
This is absolutely primo Canadian roots music, entirely relatable, emotionally rewarding, and if, at the very least, it fails to gain a Songwriter of the Year nomination for the 2019 Juno Awards, it will be both bewildering and an injustice.
The latest release from The Wailin’ Jennys is a beautiful new collection of covers. An album of great tunes, re-arranged by a seasoned trio who know how to bring out the best in a song. It grows on you, song by song. We wholly recommend a listen!
