Published Oct 01, 2012As previously reported, Vancouver rockers Ladyhawk are back after a four-year absence with their third full-length, No Can Do. While Triple Crown Recordings won't release the album until October 9, you can now check it out in full courtesy of Exclaim!
Described in a press release as "their most assertive and soul-stirring yet," the LP trades in some of the more laid-back, bar-rock-geared elements of the band's older worked for twitchy bubblegum punk ("Rub Me Wrong") and fuzzed-out but doe-eyed anthems ("You Read My Mind"). But the band can still tug at the heartstrings without amps a-blazing, as on psychedelic closer "Eyes of Passion."
As previously reported, No Can Do was recorded at the Hive Creative Labs with Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Cave Singers) with "electro-acoustic help" from Black Mountain/Lightning Dust member Joshua Wells, and was mastered by Jeff Lipton (Bon Iver, Destroyer, Numero Group)
Ladyhawk are also out on the road this fall, and you can catch their Canadian schedule here.
