4.0 excellentbrows | December 23rd 10

Authenticity defines this relatively unknown British Columbian band. Relatively unknown, that is, outside of
B.C., which really is an absolute shame. Their debut is an infinitely pleasing listen, ripe with group
harmonies and somewhat unexpected guitar prowess that could easily blend beneath the Last Waltz, or
some other 70's gathering of folk rock giants. Much of this is owed to the analog glow the songs
befittingly bask in, but that radiance stems from an extraordinarily profound writer's perspective. The
material is grounded in romanticism and engages the listener with comfort and attainable prosperity, both

The album makes you feel good and the songs keep coming back into your head long after listening to the album. Caught them live and the band gives the songs a harder edge that keeps you bouncing.

Yukon Blonde is one of those records where easygoing folk meets comfortable, bucolic rock in "relax, it's Sunday morning" fashion. For a perfect example (and even if you're not sure you'd like it, this song is undoubtedly the cornerstone of the album from any way you look at it) see "Wind Blows," which almost stands as a nominee for 2010's catchiest folk-rock song. Here we see a benchmark: the sound is too primitive and not emotionally-fulfilling enough to do what it intends to do. What's worse is that its Americana tinge will undoubtedly bore, and it makes itself sound juvenile and amateurish due to its offensive pop-rock sound. It goes down smoothly but don't be fooled, it has a terrible aftertaste.
