Canada’s national folk magazine (Penguin Eggs) also gave a stellar review!
“The 6th disc from Ontario-born, Yukon-raised singer/songwriter Gordie Tentrees comes across as a fever dream of phrases and images tumbling over each other in their rush to get out of his head and to hang solid in their weight around the listener’s ears. From fathers selling their land, wrong towns, wheel girls, lost guitars, dead beat dads, defeated boxers, writers sleeping in Townes Van Zandt’s bed, interpreting Mary Gauthier, broken heroes, to death feeling fine when you’re tired of time, the disc is a surging river of lyrics that flood over the listener and wash them clean, leaving them in a place where they can relax and ponder what life and love actually mean. This torrent is aided by particularly deft accompaniment by the likes of Bob Hamilton (Hungry Hill and The Undertakin’ Daddies), the multiple award-winning Catherine Maclellan and others, who add their personal touches to the rich mix. A lean, tough, fun and serious disc that the listener will want to dip into again and again” PENGUIN EGGS
