Milkcrate Records in-store: Nov. 19th with the Great Bloomers

Facebook event

Welcome back to Kelowna one of the bands who helped us kickstart our acclaimed in-store live sessions way back when in April… touring in support of their terrific new album, Distant Fires.

Like the recent seven-inch “Something More,” Distant Fires was produced by Chris Stinger (Timber Timbre, Ohbijou). The album includes that single plus its B-side, “Sunday Clothes,” and the rest of the 11 songs follow the folk rock template mapped out in those songs.

The new tunes are “brooding with Leonard Cohen grit,” while others “[erupt] into Springsteen-like anthems.” The arrangements, which are heavy on guitar and organ, are said to be “simultaneously vast and dense.” There’s no title track, but there are consecutive songs called “In the Distance” and “The Fire Burns Strong.”

Look for Great Bloomers to promote Distant Fires with a Canadian tour throughout the fall and winter. Until then, stream the single “I Wanna Die Young” at
