All That Reckoning (Pre-Order)"It's a deeper and a more complete record than we've ever done before," says
songwriter/guitarist Michael Timmins. "These songs are about reckoning on a
personal level and reckoning on a political level."
In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet,
beautiful and reflective. Their now classic album, The Trinity Session, was like a whisper
that cut through the noise and sold more than a million copies.
For more than 30 years, Cowboy Junkies have remained true to their unique vision,
creating a critically acclaimed body of work that has endeared them to an audience
unwavering in its loyalty.
With their new album, All That Reckoning, the band once again gently shakes the listener
to wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal
relationships, this new collection may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have
yet recorded.1. All That Reckoning (Part 1)

The multi-platinum album The Trinity Session by Cowboy Junkies is the prove it's possible to create a fantastic album overnight; it was recorded in the night of 27th November 1987 using just one microphone, a DAT recorder and the wonderful acoustics of the Holy Trinity in Toronto.
The album includes a mixture of original material by the band and covers of classic folk, rock and country songs, including the band's most famous single, a cover of The Velvet Underground's Sweet Jane.
The Trinity Session is completely re-mastered and includes 2 tracks that were previously not included on the album; Blue Moon Revisited and Working On A Building.

Grace & LiesOn the surface, the two concepts Grace and Lies couldn't seem more different. One of them restores, the other ruins. One of them forgives, the other deceives. But to hear Kim Krans, frontwoman for Family Band, tell it, the two aren't opposed, they're intertwined. Grace and Lies are two characters I envisioned last summer, she says, by way of explaining the haunting title track on the group's second record. I couldn't get them out of my head. I saw them in a field behind our cabin, singing and slow dancing, like ghosts, sort of. They're the rulers of beauty and false promises. And we all fall for them from time to time."
And therein lies the beautiful dichotomy of Family Band. A collaboration between visual-artist-turned-singer Kim Krans and her husband, onetime heavy-metal guitarist Jonny Ollsin (Children, S.T.R.E.E.T.S.), the merging of the couple's sensibilities makes for music that's simultaneously elegant and visceral. Their songs are as stark as bare trees in winter, Krans' baleful alto swooping mournfully over Ollsin's glimmering guitar like a black crow against a grey sky.
As its title implies Grace & Lies is equal parts light and shadow, evoking the mystery and terror of early Cat Power, the ghostly aura of Warpaint, with whom Family Band toured in 2011, and the hushed longing of prime-era Cowboy Junkies. Though they explored similar territory, both sonically and lyrically, on their self-released debut, Miller Path, on Grace their canvas is wider, the greys lusher, the blacks deeper. Assisted by bass and lapsteel player Scott Hirsch (Hiss Golden Messenger), the couple has made a record that boldly confronts life's darker questions.
Miller Path was recorded mostly at our cabin upstate, while Jonny was busy with his metal band and I was focused on my visual arts career, Krans explains. It was my first time recording music and I didn't know how to steer the wheel. I didn't even know what the wheel was. But with Grace & Lies, we all decided what the overarching atmosphere and mood of the record should be. I made big drawings of each song in the control room, with all the parts and changes illustrated, and we built those visions with sound.
That meticulous planning is evident throughout. Night Song revolves around a single, dazzling guitar riff that spirals like stars in the night sky; Ride builds steadily to an ominous, spectacular finale, timpanis booming and guitars gathering like storm clouds in a clear sky; and Again, which boasts production and instrumental work by Dan Rossen of Grizzly Bear, surges forward, a roaring river beneath a sheet of ice. Grace & Lies is a document of a band staring down life's larger riddles: love, death, loss and deceit.1. Night Song
