The Hoof and the Heel

I have a very good feeling about a new montreal folk band called The Hoof and the Heel. I have only heard them on MySpace so far, and am planning to go see them live pretty soon.

The song “Fireworks” is an instant-grabber. It sounds like Sufjan stevens and Arcade Fire’s nephew stuck together on a high-energy trip.

One of my favorite bands.
New album in 2009.
Let the music speak for itself.

For obscure reasons I won’t get into now, it took me a few months to listen to Montreal rockers Clues.
I can’t say I regret having waited so long. Pleasure delaying always worked for me, and this time was no exception.

Their self-titled album is simply stunning.

Why I loved it so much is hard to say. Could it be that my very low expectations were shattered? or is it the fantastic production work by Radwan Moumneh ? or maybe just the catchy hooks that inhabit every single song on the record ?

I don’t care, and neither should you. Just head to their myspace and listen to the tunes for yourself.
