Canadian alternative country/Americana band Pretty Archie has been around for ten years, but they continue to evolve. Here’s their sixth full-length studio album, self-titled this time, and thanks in part to producer/engineer, Mark Howard (The Tragically Hip, Tom Waits, Willie Nelson), they’ve risen above themselves. The 9 new songs, basically recorded live off the floor, with minimal overdubs, sound fresh and timeless at the same time. The vocals of songwriter/guitarist Brian Cathcart are awesome, the musical accompaniment convincing and captivating. The slow tracks have beautiful melodies, the faster tunes are catchier than thought possible. The Cape-Breton-based 4-piece have long been East Coast favorites, but this record has everything to conquer the hearts of the rest of the world.
