New album: Cartwrights || Years At A Time

Obviously American singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound, The Compulsive Gamblers, The Oblivians) is a hero of ours. Nice to see that his work has inspired Mike Fraser (vocals, guitar), Wayne Marcin (bass, guitar, vocals) and Stu Rankin (drums, vocals) to start a band and eventually borrow his name. Cartwrights’ new full-length album Years At A Time contains nine tracks that fuse garage rock and indie folk, without shying away from big gestures. Vibrant guitar riffs, thundering drum rolls, raw vocals and even a whoo-hoo-hoo sing-along chorus (in King of Tonight) – the musicians from Thunder Bay, Ontario (Canada) hand over a solid and heartfelt roots rock record.

Years At A Time, written by Mike Fraser and arranged by Cartwrights, is out now digitally, and soon on CD and vinyl LP, through Lost Dog Records. Also featuring guitarists RJ Little and Casey Laforet on selected tracks.
