Elliott Brood - Northern Air
Elliott Brood call themselves "Death Country." We like that description and the overall sound of that genre, but we don't want it to scare you off, so for the sake of keeping it in terms that we all will understand, let's just call it alt-country. They are a Canadian treasure, and have toured this vast country coast to coast multiple times, opening for such great bands as Wilco, Blue Rodeo, Corb Lund and the Black Crowes. They have a new album out, titled "Days Into Years," and we strongly endorse it. The above song is wonderful, and we are giving you a clip recorded live for CBC Radio 3, just so you can have a taste of how truly great they are. The album is available, as always, through the juggernaut that is called iTunes.
