i'm on a highway to hell...

Trans Canada Highwayboards of canada's transcanada highway ep is easily my favourite album from their catalogue. the boys decided to go back to their roots on this one with all analogue synths and lovely big samples.

it's a warm sound with a wonderful sense of space which fits with the title. the transcanada highway seems to stretch on forever with nothing but trees or prairie depending on where you are at the time. it's a lonely road and this album captures that feeling. it swells and breathes and then vanishes into nothing again.

i've linked my favourite track off the album to this post. it's called dayvan cowboy.
