Published Sep 25, 2013Singer-songwriter Michael Olsen has been making a name for himself for over a decade thanks to frequent collaborations with Arcade Fire, the Hidden Cameras, Jim Guthrie and many more. But after years climbing the ranks of the Canadian music scene, Olsen is ready to step into the forefront with The Nines, the debut full-length from his new recording project Our Founders. You can stream the album in full ahead of its October 3 release.
A self-described "Outsider Adult Contemporary" group, Our Founders' debut disc finds the enigmatic singer and his backing two-piece delivering George Harrison-inspired fretwork ("Floods"), Elliott Smith-worthy pop vignettes ("Another Chance") and atmospheric folk rock ("White Beetle") over the album's modest seven tracks.
Listen to the album in the player below. And if that's not enough, pick up a hard copy of The Nines at its official release on October 3 at Toronto's the Piston.
