From the town of Amherst, Nova Scotia Jon McKiel plays earthy, guitar-driven indie rock with a love for polyrhythm. He's now based in Sackville, and has a new self-titled EP recorded to tape in Crousetown, Nova Scotia. The record's a collaboration with producer / improviser Jay Crocker (who played guitar / sang in Calgary's Ghostkeeper.)
Here's "Twin Speaks" the stuttered, syncopated fourth track on the record, and part of his set when he stopped by Montreal to play Brasserie Beaubien last week on his way to Sled Island (accompanied by a bandmate playing bass and drums at the same time). Get the vinyl from Headless Owl Records.
