Published Oct 15, 2012Ian MacDougall and his band of merry Cape Breton musicians in the Tom Fun Orchestra are set return with their long-awaited sophomore album Earthworm Heart on November 13, but you can listen to it right here, right now.
Following up 2008's You Will Land With a Thud, the new album marks some growth for the East Coast ensemble. Having toured extensively across Canada, as well as the UK, Ireland and Australia, the band have fine-tuned their craft.
In a tongue-in-cheek press release, Tom Fun Orchestra describe their first album's sound as a "full throttle onslaught," but note that the new material has been refined to "leaner, tougher compositions with particular attention paid to finding the appropriate arrangements for each song."
They go on to warn that Earthworm Heart "produces diverse physical reactions from the listener, including uncontrollable hip wiggling, fist pumping, jumping and guzzling." So, clear your immediate surroundings and grab something to guzzle before hitting play below.
In support of the album, Tom Fun Orchestra will be heading out on a lengthy Canadian tour, heading all the way out to the West Coast and back again. You can see the entire schedule here.
