Bought another offering from Six Shooter Records
today: Luke Doucet
's 'Broken (and other rogue stats).' I first saw him at a Danny Michel concert and he seemed to be in command of the music somehow, despite Danny's genius. The album reminds me a lot of Danny Michel actually, maybe just because that's the context I know him from. Similar arrangements, instramentation, also works with the omnipresent Kevin Fox
, funny clever lyrics (though less prosaic, more poetic, somehow not quite as fantastic, but almost there). Anyway I've listened to it 3 times through and it kicks ass!
ps. ever use a mantra to pass the time while waiting for a page to download? I used to use the Beatles' "1-2-3-4-5-6-7, all the children go to heaven," but have recently switched to "1, 2, 3, and to the 4, Snoop Doggie Dogg and Dr. Dre is at the door."
pps. First down, Mont-real!!!
