Quick-hitters:: Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir

web site :: myspace :: label

We are starting to put the finishing touches on the Alberta edition of the Great Canadian Mixtape - tentatively called Alberta: Hoodoo You Think You Are? - and not to toot our own horns, but we have some good exclusives coming as well as some under appreciated acts from the Energy Province.

One that I couldn't continue to sleep on is the Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir, and the name gives you a good idea of what they are about. Feverish energy, banjo, stand up bass and soulful, ragged vocals are just the tip of the iceberg. It's easier to picture these guys playing in a tiny joint deep in the South than at a club in Calgary, but it makes no difference. They will take you to the crossroads, leaving you whiskey fueled and sweat soaked.

This track is from their '05 release - Fighting and Onions, but we are hoping to get a sneak preview from their upcoming record for you all on the Mixtape. Need more convincing? They are friend with William Whitmore... that's enough for me.
