The CSA and Kaleidoscope Promotions present Elliott Brood
Thursday, March 25, 2010
If Wilco + Richard Buckner went on tour covering Johnny Cash songs, the result might sound a bit like the music of Toronto trio, Elliott Brood.
Stalking shadows on the prairies with a compass and set of matches, shaking the mountains loose with howls and footstomps and, settled in meadows, while whispering tales under darkening skies, obsessed with history or historically obsessed, either way, Elliott BROOD have a penchant for stories they just can’t shake.
With the release of their latest record, Mountain Meadows, comes a new chapter. It marks the evolution of Elliott BROOD from a backwoods character into a timeless figure. Recorded in Town halls, front rooms, back rooms and good old recording studios, the album’s wandering melodies are driven by rusty guitars and aching vocals that waltz around charming piano lines while ukuleles and banjos sway to and fro between a chorus of horns. It’s sunnier the higher you climb the Mountain, but in the Meadows below lay darker themes each with their own lore.
Advance tickets available at Ground Floor Music (13 Quebec St.). This event is split licensed.
