Remember Dream Country? We don’t blame you, but right now is a really, really good time to get reacquainted.
A Saskatoon folk-pop-indie-rock-whatevs band, Dream Country, led by songwriter Jordan Kurtz, are apparently sitting on a treasure trove of a full-length album.
And on lead single “Radio” the group blasts through a melodic-yet-driving rock gem that manages to sound slick like pasta yet still manages to stick to the wall in the most endearing pop-shuffle way possible.
Dream Country will be releasing a new song every two weeks until the album’s release on January 5th, according to Kurtz.
It’s been a long road for the group, who were last seen on stage at least a year ago possibly in Yorkton. Personal circumstances, and a year of Kurtz playing and touring with Teen Daze, Andy Shauf, and Slow Down Molasses have put the record on the backburner. Most of the other members are staying busy with other projects as well, with bassist Malcolm Whyte playing with Economics, Karpinka Brothers, and Aces Wyld, and drummer Nik Winnitowy as a member of Economics, and The Law And The Prophets.
At the moment there are no plans for a CD release show, but I bet if you bug the members enough they’ll put something together.
