from The Falcon Lake Incident
track released October 19, 2010
TORONTO, September 22, 2010 -
MapleMusic Recordings are pleased to announce the signing of critically acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter Jim Bryson.
The Falcon Lake Incident, Bryson's fourth studio album, his first backed by The Weakerthans, will be released on October 19, 2010. Kelp Records will release the 180G LP version (complete with download coaster!).
Recorded on Falcon Lake in Manitoba over six days in January 2010, The Falcon Lake Incident brings Bryson, one of Canada's truly under appreciated and engaging voices, together with Canadian indie rock heroes The Weakerthans. Guest appearances include Jill Barber, Gord Sinclair, Peter von Althen and Dave Draves.
"It was such a great place to be and make music. Jason was cooking, Stephen went on ski excursions
and I generally talked to the wildlife. There seemed to be an real calming effect to recording so far away from rest of the world.
I think when we left, we all thought 'how did we just do that'"?
Mixed by Darryl Neudorf and Dave Draves back in Ontario, the result is a compelling and engaging folk rock record that is both familiar and unexpected.
Jim Bryson and The Weakerthans Band will celebrate the release of The Falcon Lake Incident at the Horseshoe Tavern on October 19, 2010.
