Published Dec 28, 2009The Click Hear crew will be taking a break for the next two weeks, but you shouldn't let that stop you from swinging by this spot to (re)discover some of our favourite tracks from the past year. There's no real rhyme or reason behind these picks; they're just the songs that have helped to soundtrack the last 12 months for us. Enjoy and have a happy holidays.
Apparently the guitar heavy sounds of classic Northwest indie rock have moved a little bit east. Edmonton three-piece Outdoor Miners are the proof, and they've just released their debut seven-inch.
A-side track "Twelve Hundred Dollars" delivers in every way possible, with up-tempo drums, a catchy chorus and an addictive interplay between the bass and guitar. Beneath it all is a perfectly written indie rock anthem.
The seven-inch, out on Pop Echo Records is limited to 300, so don't sleep on this slab of indie rock revivalism.
