There’s a double rainbow in the sky over Los Angeles. It’s a good omen. Tim and Neil Finn have flown in from New Zealand to record a new album, Everyone Is Here.
The pair has enjoyed global success alone and together. Between their solo careers, Crowded House, Split Enz, and a stash of classic songs, the Finn brothers have contributed more than their fair share of the tunes we hum in our quieter moments.
There are too many songs to list, but try a handful like this for size; “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” “Weather With You,” Six Months In A Leaky Boat,” “I Got You,” “Persuasion,” “She Will Have Her Way”… the list goes on and on. Still, we’re hungry for more, and ever hopeful of what the next chapter may bring.
The Clumsy Lovers are an eclectic Bluegrass Celtic jam band based in Coquitlam, British Columbia, with more than 2000 live performances in a decade to its credit. The current line-up consists of Jason Homey on banjo and mandolin, Chris Jonat on bass guitar and vocals, Rebecca Smith on Fiddle, Tyler Thompson on drums, and Trevor Rogers on vocals and guitar.
Previous line-ups included Brad Gillard (banjo), Cameron Jonat (drums), Andrea Lewis (fiddle), and Gord Robert (drums).
If The Cardigans’ previous album was majestic and mature, “Super Extra Gravity” is an unruly and spectacular album. Still, there are similarities. The band succeeds in retaining everything that was good about ”Long Gone Before Daylight” while, at the same time, rebelling against it. Continuity and reaction in one.
