Gord Downie, the poet/lyricist/singer of The Tragically Hip, and the alt country/rock group The Sadies deliver a teeth-gritting, garage-band sound with their self-titled album Gord Downie, The Sadies, and The Conquering Sun. This recording has been in the works since their 2006 collaboration on a benefit album for the Lake Ontario Waterkeepers, and was born over seven years of staggered rehearsals, with only about ten days total of recording time. Written by Downie and The Sadies, and mixed by Bob Rock, it is a blend of Detroit rock, alt country, and fuzz-tone psychedelia. Check out the tracks “Crater,” “One Good Fast Job,” and “It Didn’t Start to Break My Heart Until This Afternoon.” The band is hitting the road with a string of U.S. dates in May, and Canadian dates in June, July, and September.[rating:4] -Larry Hogard
