As one peruses the list of artists that are currently part of our global broadcast here at Froglix, it’s easy to see that our neighbors to the north are fairly well represented. What is also readily apparent is that from the hard driving sound of 22nd Century to the groovy ska riddims of Rude City Riot, the Great White North’s indie music scene is a veritable smorgasbord of sound. So what’s on the menu this week? Edmonton, AB’s The Sky Life who join the broadcast with selections from their most recent disc Roots and Wings. With this their second studio offering, Justin Carter (vox|guitar), Daniel Hooft (lead guitar), Bobby Kuhl (keys), Josh Steffen (drums) and Dwight Werbicki (bass) have channeled the collective sum of their creative talents and successfully crafted an album that is truly inspiring. While theirs is a collage of sound it’s not without balance as the aforementioned players compliment each other quite well. Luscious layers, memorable hooks and a solid performance add to inventive lyrics that are anything but cookie cutter and speak to that which is real for all of us. Enjoy!
