from Throw Me To The Wolves by Eamon McGrath. Streaming + Download.
On his third album proper, Eamon McGrath blazes a jingoistic path in an attempt to capture what defines Canada and its music. It would be easy to pick on Young Canadians for its overt sonic references and McGrath's reverence for his heroes, but doing so misses the point entirely.

Robert Pollard should be shaking in his shoes. There’s a monton singer/songwriter named Eamon McGrath who’s doing a pretty good job of catching up to the dozens and dozens of releases the Guided by Voices frontman has put out by himself or with his band since the ‘80s.
Eamon McGrath never sleeps. He writes, tours, records, repeats: regardless of whether his usual band can join him or not. In Edmonton he plays with The Wild Dogs and The Whiskey Dogs behind him, but on the road sometimes showing up in a city means meeting the band that night.
