Tour Dates:: Doug Hoyer & The Joe

Doug HoyerWe’re fans of Edmonton’s OLD UGLY Recording Co. here are the hill, but this likely shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who visits the site more than once a month. A Canadian based, somewhat obscure (for now!) recording and performing collective featuring a melange of folk, indie rock & hip hop? Yes please.


So when we get word that two of the OLD UGLY crew are going to be heading out on a cross-Canada tour (and an actual cross-Canada tour I should add, you know, one that goes past Montreal), we’re only too happy to spread the word. Doug Hoyer has himself a new album (Walks With The Tender And Growing Night) dropping at the end of this month, and if the sneak peak we posted a couple months ago is any indication, it’s going to be just more of that uke-powered goodness we’ve grown accustomed too.


Doug will be joined by The Joe (aka Joe Gurba) an engaging emcee that finally dropped his long overdue debut (Float or Flail) this past January. I’d been familiar with The Joe from his OLD UGLY affiliation and his appearance on Mitchmatic’s mixtape, but I hadn’t heard his own stuff until today. And I have to say, I’m impressed with Float or Flail. It’s catchy stuff, and Joe is a clever MC with a conversational style that makes for easy listening. There are some Jebus-related moments that had me a little concernicus due to my scarring Dynamic Twins experience back in the day, but those were relatively few.
