Lions In The Street - (ST) 2010
I've been watching this band for a few years now. Finally a drop. Come to Toronto boyz....we'll throw you a party!
Vancouver's Lions In The Street have finally released their debut full-length album independently, after a four-year fight with the now-bankrupt TVT Records. These songs (mostly recorded live to tape at Mushroom Studios with Shawn Cole) take pre-punk rock and roll as their starting point, but are inspired ultimately by the spirit of gospel music: this is the kind of weary-though-hopeful, beaten-but-not-broken record that only a band who had been through the ringer could make.
