Neophile: The Waking Eyes

December 4, 2008


[embedded YouTube video; if you can’t watch it, click here]

Some music from above the 49th parallel as a soundtrack to the currently-unfolding constitutional crisis. The video is of Winnipeg-based The Waking Eyes—paying homage to their fellow Manitobans The Weakerthans—busking for charity in front of the El Mo in Toronto, ON, filmed earlier this year. The band just released their second album, Holding On To Whatever It Is, along with a 3-CD set of B-sides and rarities (outtakes?), which probably explains why the album itself is a tightly-focused slice of 70s garage rock that makes for fun listening.
