It’s here! ”Saturn Return” by Old Cabin is officially released! You can stream the album right now at Exclaim!
Here’s the rundown: “The album opens with the previously shared addiction tale “Where Did You Go,” which is immediately followed by an accompanying suite cryptically titled “!?!” From there, we hear the stories of “Joe,” as well as “And Annie,” before Barr grapples with the absurdities of life on “I Got You,” and finally — and perhaps most powerfully — the aftermath of residential schools on “Don’t Leave Me Behind.”
Rich with layered characters and heavy themes, the album is am engaging exercise in modern musical storytelling told through a distinctly Canadian lens.”
It’s a great record – we were lucky enough to witness Jona perform it in its entirety on the Golden Bus earlier this month. Be sure to keep an eye on his tour schedule. If you’re out in western Canada, check out one of these upcoming dates:
