Elliott BROOD Taste “Bluebird Wine”

2024 Touring Includes Ontario, Folk Alliance and Europe

“Their soaring voices unite in perfectly ragged harmony and the air around them thrums and vibrates as they reach a glorious crescendo.” – Winnipeg Free Press 

“Long may you stomp.” – Grant Lawrence, CBC

Hot off the release of Town, the first album of a two-part set that will continue with Country in 2024, Elliott BROOD share a cover of Grammy-winner Rodney Crowell’s “Bluebird Wine,” a staple of the country folk songbook. 

 

With base notes of Texas country, full bodied Americana and flutters of rim-shot percussion, Elliott BROOD infuse their own experiences into the 1970s hit. Transformed into a true country ripper, “Bluebird Wine” chirps and hops along with a peppy verve. True to form, Elliott BROOD 

layer on their signature stomp and clap sound and their unique blend of vocal tones, creating an elixir of lifestyle, a feeling to imbibe that brings joy and fullness.

 

Elliott BROOD will begin 2024 with tour dates in Ontario, including a show at Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern, before heading to Kansas City, MO for Folk Alliance 2024. The band then heads to Netherlands, Germany and France for a spring run with stops in Antwerp, Paris, Berlin and Hamburg and more.

The Dead South announce their return to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, this time for two nights, July 12 and 13, 2024. Tickets will be available to the public on Friday, December 8 at 9am CT. The two shows are an exciting addition to a busy year ahead that will see the band headline major festivals across North America, Australia and Europe, release a new album, make their  live debut in Mexico, and more.

The band readies for the February release of their fourth full-length album, Chains & Stakes, with a new song out today. “A Little Devil,” first introduced at their sold out debut at The Mother Church this past summer, is a song about temptation and regret. Musically, “A Little Devil” shows off the band’s considerable talent for ferocious and fiery strumming, masterfully balancing its stops and starts, twists and turns while it careens between love song and cautionary tale.

Chains & Stakes reunites The Dead South with Grammy winner Jimmy Nutt, who produced the JUNO Award winning, Billboard chart-topping Sugar & Joy, their previous studio album. With 13 songs of plot twists, family trees, grudges, insurance scams, bacon, burials, banjo riffs and more, Chains & Stakes is an album of surprises, top-notch musicianship and entertaining tales.

As they grow more adventurous and assured with each album, Chains & Stakes is a truly “Dead South” collection in the balance of darkness and levity that has come to define their unmistakable approach. The Dead South will come full circle on the story of the album next October, when they return to Mexico City, where they recorded Chains & Stakes, to make their live debut in the country.

Run with the Sound: The Violet Archers Share New Songs

Listen to “Animal Song” Featuring Sarah Harmer and “Nobody Knows” Here

 

The Violet Archers, solo project of Rheostatics’ Tim Vesely, release two new songs today. “Animal Song,” is about inspiration, that unknowable innermost cavern from which creativity flows. “When inspiration comes, it comes like an animal in the night,” says Vesely. 

With hope and earnesty, the new song runs headlong towards this subterranean, subconscious space. Rooted in the soft soil of a marching drum beat, the song’s pace is a waterfall in steady flow. With birdsong acoustic guitar and mountain airy synth, Vesely’s message is spacious and clear. “Run with the sound and when it’s done it’s gone,” it goes.  

On “Animal Song,” Vesely reunites with Sarah Harmer, who first collaborated on Rheostatics’ The Story of Harmelodia (1999). The song, released today with bonus single “Nobody Knows,” is also available in Dolby Atmos spatial audio on Apple Music. 

Listen to The Violet Archers’ new songs here

 

ABOUT THE VIOLET ARCHERS

The Violet Archers is the solo project of Tim Vesely, a “master pop craftsman” (Exclaim), founding Rheostatics band member and producer/composer based in Toronto. In search of an alternate environment in which to express his songwriting vision, Vesely formed the band in 2005, joined by Ida Nilsen, Yawd Sylvester, Cam Giroux and Scott Remila, to release The End Of Part One (2005) and Sunshine At Night (2008).

Over the next decade, Vesely applied his songcraft expertise to recording and producing other artists in his role as in-house engineer/producer at Blue Rodeo’s Woodshed studio in Toronto. Since the release of Rheostatics’ Whale Music soundtrack, Vesely has also continued to compose music for film and television.

The unexpected Rheostatics reunion for Here Come The Wolves in 2017 brought about Vesely’s return to songwriting. Holed up in the Woodshed while the pandemic slowed momentum on further Rheos recordings, Vesely moved forward on his own. Channeling the creative energy sparked by the Rheos’ first new album in over a decade, new songs for The Violet Archers continue to emerge, including “Animal Song” and “Nobody Knows.”

Boy Golden’s New “Aeroplane Song” Out Now

Listen To “Aeroplane Song” Here

 

Changes in altitudes, changes in attitudes: Boy Golden releases “Aeroplane Song,” an easy breezy lemon squeezy travelling tune that glides from Key West to Paris, Texas, with time for all stops in between. The mood is patient and unhurried, a tension melting respite from a world of schedules and deadlines. 

An old drum machine beat meanders along with brushed skins and crisp shakers, a take-off rhythm section of pressurized air and the crunchy crinkle of plastic wrappers. A smooth, silky slide guitar leads us down each aisle with a smile. With each listen, more textures emerge like layers of atmosphere, proving Boy Golden’s production ear a reliable counterpart to his sincere songwriting. Whether you’re coming or going, “Aeroplane Song” will have you feeling lighter than air.

Don’t miss Boy Golden and The Church of Better Daze this month as they make their way home to Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Tumbling Towards Ecstasy: NYSSA Announces Shake Me Where I’m Foolish

New Album Out February 1, 2024

Listen to “Blessèd Touch” and “No More Bodies” Here

Shows in Toronto, Montreal and Dublin in November

 

 

Toronto’s NYSSA announces Shake Me Where I’m Foolish, her new album set for release on Feb 1, 2024. Self-produced and mixed by renowned studio master Sylvia Massy, this is NYSSA’s first for Six Shooter Records. On the new album, NYSSA fetches the bolt cutters, rattles the cages of so-called emotional maturity and braids together centuries of mystics and mythos from ancient lands. Flutes, sirens, latex and minotaurs: this is the world of Shake Me Where I’m Foolish.

Named for a line in a poem by Chicago free verse poet Carl Sandburg, “Baby Song of the Four Winds,” Shake Me Where I’m Foolish invokes rebirth, freshness and freedom. The north wind, a cold plunge, a grotto of pleasure, going out beyond the breakwater, a night run amok: there are ways to break loose. The title calls the quarters and sets the stage for 11 songs that tread this garden of earthly delights. From the first track, “The Initiate,” NYSSA opens the wardrobe to a Punk Rock Narnia, an otherworld of her own design.

“Blessèd Touch,” out today, pulls like the tides. In this new song, NYSSA writes a “Sign of the Times” style pagan gospel: “I am addressing my daemons, my ancestors, and the gods and spirits that wish me well,” she says. “This is a beseeching prayer for something bigger, something divine, to come in and shake loose the stuck and the brittle. The song summons an Otherworld crossroads, a beach at night where a spell is cast and change invoked.” Alarmist and escapist, the song lays wintry domesticity at the altar of a wilder, warmer shore.

Also out today, “No More Bodies” connects with NYSSA’s lineage, a course forever changed by the crossing of an ocean. The song is “about a feeling of rootlessness, of being a first-generation descendent of an Irish mother, and feeling this constant sense of distance from the land of my ancestors,” NYSSA shares. “‘No More Bodies’ is my banshee-invoker. My keening cry for liberation. A howl and a fist raised and shook. Grief released.”

This fall, NYSSA continues to preview material in kindred locales around the world. In Berlin, the slinky dance cave frenzy of “Breakup Party” fits the scene. Montreal, a place of midnight transformation, is home of the “Werewolf,” the haircuts and anxieties of youth. In Ireland, her ancestral home, Gaelic traditions that run deep in NYSSA’s blood come bubbling up to the surface. NYSSA’s travels mirror and enhance the geographic, mythological and polytheistic touchstones of her sophomore collection. Transportive and borderless, NYSSA’s songs ride the four winds to distant lands.

Six Shooter Records releases Shake Me Where I’m Foolish on Imbolc, a Gaelic and pagan traditional festival, February 1, 2024.

My Northern Heart: Elliott BROOD Release Town

Part One of Town & Country Out Today 

Photo by Dustin Seabrook

 

Town Release In-Store @ Dead Dog Records, 1277 Bloor St. W, Nov 9 @ 7pm.
RSVP 
here

 

On their new album, Town, out today, Elliott BROOD journey through familiar haunts and charge down new paths, all in the name of growth, love and family. Overall, Town speaks to the experiences of being away, of missing loved ones, of facing mistakes and reconciling consequences. Part one of a two-album cycle, Town & Country, Elliott BROOD’s Town also speaks to joy, appreciation of where they come from and to the kind of people they’ve become.

Rose City,” is a love letter to the band’s hometown of Windsor, ON. A southern rocker with a healthy kick, the song fuels another trip down the main drag. Further down the block, “Dark End of the Road” is deep in thought, awash in regret and longing. Even in its darkness, the melody rolls along like headlights guiding the way.

“Paper Money” shuffles and laments, a darkly comedic look at trying to forget your problems when you feel obsolete. A Bell Jar waltz that tenderly sifts through the past, “Evelyn” holds its sorrowful story like a locket.

Clearing the dust and tears from our eyes, “Stars Align” bursts open like a shooting star overhead. Full of uplifting energy, it bops along like a doo-wop swinger with a punk rock pacing. In quick succession, the percussive “Dried Up” claps into action. “My northern heart is drying up down south,” goes its line, which encapsulates Town’s through-line in its ongoing search for the right place at the right time. The steady sparseness and tick-tock heartbeat of album closer “Sinking Stone,” leaves us with whispered vocals and hushed guitars.

Over their twenty years as a band, Elliott BROOD have traveled this country so many times they’ve earned the familiarity that’s felt here, knowing that even if we were once strangers, we’re now friends. Home is about who you’re with, wherever you are.

Town is out today on Six Shooter Records.

The Dead South Count Close Calls In “Tiny Wooden Box”

New Album Chains & Stakes Arrives February 9, 2024

Photo Credit: Lyle Bell

If time heals everything…The Dead South introduce their fourth studio album with “Tiny Wooden Box,” a song that gets right into it with a big hypothetical. The first single and video from forthcoming Chains & Stakes, out February 9, 2024, shows the four-piece in top form in a rolling, roiling “State Trooper” style finger-picked nail-biter.

On “Tiny Wooden Box,” The Dead South confront the challenges of returning home from two angles: existential and actuarial. This true story starts with a phone call, an offer from an insurance agent too good to refuse. As the song contemplates the cost of life’s last one-way ticket, the mood spirals, growing more ominous and anxious. Propelled by the chugging acoustic guitar, “Tiny Wooden Box” picks up speed as it hurtles head on through uneasy thoughts; group “ooh ahs” boom like heavy thunder with bolts of off-kilter banjo.

Shot on the Historic Graham Ranch deep in the Alberta Badlands, the video for “Tiny Wooden Box” sets the band in an awe-inspiring landscape, a visual antithesis of the song’s smaller – much smaller – setting. Directed by Edmonton-based Jeremy Chugg, “Tiny Wooden Box” sets the scene for Chains & Stakes with its mix of grandeur and graveyard, close calls and resolve. As night falls over ridge and river, The Dead South make a deal with the Reaper for another day.

Six Shooter Records will release Chains & Stakes worldwide on February 9, 2024. Pre-order your copy here.
