News:: New Songs & Tour From Brent Randall

Uh oh, it's raining camp indie music...Often times here on the hill we like to post full album reviews rather than individual songs, but sometimes we can't resist the single song styles. In this case, I'm posting two new songs from eclectic Halifax Troubadour Brent Randall and his backing band The Pinecones mainly because the Ack is so big on these guys that he's surely going to want to do the review when their full-length album drops. Incidentally, that full-length is entitled We Were Strangers in Paddington Green and is certainly a much-anticipated affair here in Halifax.

If these two songs are any indication, I don't sense too many people will be disappointed. Producer Jason MacIssac was also at the helm during the creation of Jenn Grant's wonderful Orchestra For The Moon, and his influence here appears to have given Randall's whimsical, cabaret-influenced sound some real depth. The album's looking quite promising right now, so enjoy these songs, scope out a video of from Pop In Sessions, and check out Brent and the 'Cones when they hit your town.
