Reseña de álbum

You can forget the 'new' or 'alternative' tags, Canadian sextet the Guthries get straight to the heart of true, legit country on their debut album Off Windmill, with particular ghosts of the Band haunting the music, but also drawing from the twanged hearts of Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and George Jones, among others. There is a real collective, communal vibe to the music. Each member of the Guthries seems to play a dozen instruments with a cocksure looseness, and they swing like crazy without losing their powerful, beer-fueled wallop, while the three songwriters in the band (Matt Mays, Ruth Minnikin, and Dale Murray) rotate lead vocals. The band can kick up a lot of dirt, as they do on "Suited," a rocked-out lament about the suffocating constriction of straight life, and play honky-tonk drinking and dancing music as on "Trials and Tribulations," but they have enough versatility to lope along at a Laurel Canyon pace as well, which is exactly what "Better Part of an Hour" manages. There is plenty of real-deal, down-on-my luck country given a modern slant (the chorus of "Patsy Cline" wallows that "Patsy Cline is the only one/who could understand/just how I'm feeling tonight"), but the Guthries also find the soft pop center in the music. The Guthries harbor no pretensions other than to make music full of heart, and if Off Windmill does one thing exquisitely, it is to show the continuum of human nature, showing that our actions rarely alter dramatically even if the music that expresses them does.The band is reverential of the musical past it holds dear but lives wholly in the present, ultimately exemplifying the truth that, as they sing on "Old Familiar Song," it's "the same as before." Sometimes the same old-same old is a good thing.

Based out of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, the Guthries originally began when three of its members performed in the Booming Airplanes in the mid-'90s. Deciding to perform music they enjoyed playing in their spare time, the band started in August 1998. Led by brothers Dale and Brian Murray (nephews of Anne Murray) and brother and sister Gabriel and Ruth Minnikin, the group recorded its debut album in 2000. The Guthries also added Matt Mays to its core of members. Recording near a railroad track off Windmill...
