Rosie June 'Listening Post' (album stream)
Published Jun 16, 2014When British Columbia songwriter Rosie June released Listening Post in 2013, it caught the ear of Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning. Tomorrow (June 17), Canning will now reissue the album through his own Draper Street Records in partnership with Bandwagon Music. To see what's in store, the album can be streamed on Exclaim.ca.
Produced and co-written by Jonathan Evans, the album centres around June's sweet, angelically cooed vocals, which are supported by toe-tapping beats and interweaving synths and electric guitars. Still, despite the prominent electronic elements and upbeat rhythms of "Sound It Out" and the rock propulsion of "Feel Better," this is a singer-songwriter record at its core.
