Winter Wheat (Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
Singer/songwriter John K. Samson enlists the rhythm section from his renowned band The Weakerthans for much of his second solo album, 'Winter Wheat.'
Inspired by the search for connection and community, his hometown of Winnipeg, and our individual and collective struggles with addictions to drugs, screens, and fossil fuels - 'Winter Wheat' is a sprawling, masterful and timely work by a writer at the peak of his powers.
'Winter Wheat' was produced in garages and homes through a Winnipeg winter by Samson's partner and collaborator, Christine Fellows, and his Weakerthans co-founder and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jason Tait, and mixed in the spring in Toronto by Robbie Lackritz (Bahamas, Feist). The spare and thoughtful arrangements also feature Greg Smith of The Weakerthans on electric bass, Ashley Au on double and electric bass, Leanne Zacharias on cello, and Shotgun Jimmie on electric guitar.
Like the crop itself, which is planted in the fall, sprouts, goes dormant through months of snow and rises in the spring, Winter Wheat is a determined, beautiful, resilient response to difficult and extraordinary times.
Double Vinyl includes three sides of music and an etching on Side D (NO AUDIO). Also includes download of full album
