Published Sep 08, 2011This summer, fans of Kingston, ON's the Gertrudes got "Derby Girl," the first taste of the band's second full-length album, Till the Morning Shows Her Face to Me. Well, if that piqued your interest, you'll be pleased to know that we now have a full-album stream of the entire ten-track record.
Till the Morning Shows Her Face to Me follows 2010's Dawn Time Riot, and as the press release explains, the new album "sobers up a little with sonic experimentation and introspection amidst some razor-sharp rock."
This leads to the more subdued sounds of tracks like "Yellow Yard" and "Dreams," but those are complemented by the more foot-stomping sounds of songs such as the previously released "Derby Girl."
Till the Morning Shows Her Face to Me isn't due out until November 1 via Apple Crisp Records, but you can currently stream it in its entirety below.
