Strict Joy by The Swell Season: Well I’m heading back to pack a bag…

Photography by KeCHi

Feeling good, feeling good…. don’t ya just love that? Of course you do! Well, with a happy feeling in me bones I got myself all pumped up to listen to the new Tegan & Sara, I mean two cuties from Canuckland with some fresh fun vibes to boogie to, what can go wrong?

Unfortunately, everything. As baby would say, it was a “hot mess” and I quickly felt my happy feet cramping and my eyes wincing…. but have no fear The Swell Season was here, no not to get my arse-a-shakin’ like a polaroid picture, but to at least fill my ears with it’s chilly autumn sound with Strict Joy!

I like this… pretty straight-forward kinda-classic-folk-rock kinda thing, like they listened to alot of Fleetwood Mac at one point in their lives. No, they aren’t a knock-off band or anything, just got that over “vibe”, ya follow?

I don’t know, it’s just a warm cozy beautiful kinda sound, rather nice after some of the chilly rides/days we’ve had lately! Kinda makes you want to make some hot cocoa, toss a big fat marshmallow in there, wrap yourself up in your favourite snuggie…

Then mosie up to the fire and…. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh………
