Published Sep 09, 2014Nova Scotia-born/Montreal-based songwriter Jared Brown released his album Help back in March, but he's already back with another full-length. Before Shee drops on September 15 through Dog Records & Tapes, it's available to stream on Exclaim.ca.
Brown and co-producer David Trenaman cut the album during a five-day session in Port Greville, NS, back in June. It's made up of ramshackle indie rock tunes which contrast their upbeat punchiness with wonky, brittle guitars and murkily muffled vocals. Even when Brown strips down the arrangement for an acoustic folk number, as on "Down the Road," his raw croak means that the results are as curious as always.
