Description

The third album of Acid Folk from Canada's Lee Harvey Osmond. Produced and recorded by Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies. Are scars beautiful? I'm sure the scarred rarely feel that way. But the older we get, the more wisdom we gain, and hopefully we learn to love who we are, no matter the emotional or physical beatings we've endured. I don't know if Hamilton singer/songwriter Tom Wilson (Junkhouse, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings) has any actual physical scars, but he sings like he's rode a few emotional roller-coasters in his time. This is Wilson's third album as Lee Harvey Osmond, a collaboration with Cowboy Junkies' Michael Timmins and the Skydiggers' Josh Finlayson, in which Wilson leaves his loud guitars behind and digs into spooky blues and the underbelly of the Canadian folk tradition, with jazzy horns and flutes, weeping pedal steel guitar (courtesy of the masterful Aaron Goldstein), haunting vibraphones and beatnik hand percussion. More than a few hellhounds appear to be on his tail. Wilson and Timmins have hit a groove and they're making some of the best music of their career. And the longer they do it, the more records they make that sound like this, it won't seem like an odd side project - but instead one of the greatest Canadian bands of the last 10 years.
