Playing games that young people should
Their album is called Strike Hard, Young Diamond.
And it carries you away.
That is the name of the band.
Spirited Canadian mountain children.
Click to Play Wildlife - When I Get Home
I'm at a loss for words with this album. I feel like I am along for the ride while a bunch of energetic besties grab their banjos and flannels and head for the hills to jam. Each track just keeps up the driving pace and delivering on the intensity. By the time they get to Track 9, "Move To The City", I am positive they are playing in the lively field of my imagination as they repeat the anthem that they'd never move to the city because "...it doesn't sound like us!"
This album is driving me a bit crazy with wistful thoughts of vitality and spontaneity... What would I do, where would I go, if I was making this kind of music?
Where would you be? Who would you be with?
Order their album Here. Support independent music. Moreso than ever, support GOOD independent music.
