Quick Hitters:: The Junction - Another Link In The Chain

The Ack and I often enjoy getting up on our high horse to talk about how we like to think of the hill as being more than just simply an MP3 site - i.e. we try and give the albums we post on a true listen and then post our semi-coherent thoughts. Well, I'm afraid you'll have to bear with us over the next couple weeks as the hill will likely be full of exactly that type of post.

It's can't be helped I'm afraid. The Ack, certainly the more productive half of the hill as far as writing is concerned, has much more amazing things on his mind, having just had a son on the weekend, so his output will understandably be much reduced for the near future I would think. As for myself, I'm starting a new project at work today (work? Yessir, we both have full-time jobs. Blogging about Canadian indie music only seems tremendously lucrative, it actually isn't), so time is going to be in short supply on my end as well.

But never fear, we'll do what we can to keep the fresh sounds coming your way. Case in point, this "blink and you'll miss it" post on Brampton indie rock trio The Junction. These guys are a perfect fit for this kind of post for a couple reasons: 1. They play a brand of catchy, uptempo, indie rock (if you want a semi-cringe inducing, lazy reviewer comparison list I can throw Matt Mays, Sam Roberts, The Novaks & even a bit of Bono onto one for you) that is going to be mighty useful in keeping my motivation up as I try and slog through the openning days of my new assignment and 2. Their album is the kind that likely wouldn't even benefit from one of my soliloquy-like reviews, as it's the kind of straight-ahead indie rock that you either like, or don't. I myself enjoy it plenty, as it's got the kind of loud guitars and sing-along hooks that are perfect for August - the one month of summer we get down here.

The Junction's Another Link In The Chain is available now, so check out the rather vivid video for their lead single, the infectious, hand-clap inducing My Love Was There, and if you like what you hear, get yourself a copy of their self-released album.
