Everything, Everything

Shotgun Jimmie

Whenever you hear that an artist has retreated to a cabin somewhere to record an album, you immediately assume that the product will be drenched in sadness and sorrow, la Bon Iver. But as Canadian songwriter Jim Kilpatrick (aka Shotgun Jimmie) assures us, he isn't a "love-wounded man," nor does he have a beard. Instead, new album Everything, Everything is the opposite; it's joyous, fun and practically oozes charm with every jolt of a song. Most of the numbers on this album burst by, clocking in at one or two minutes, the perfect anecdotal slices to keep listeners hooked. Still evoking the sounds of Can-rock past (Eric's Trip) and present (Chad Vangaalen, especially on opening statement "Standing in a Line"), Shotgun Jimmie's music is a perfect piece of the puzzle that is the Canadian music landscape. Arguably the only one who can pull off a song about Skype dates, Kilpatrick is a most charming entertainer. (You've Changed)
