9 Songs, 33 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Saskatchewan duo Kacy & Clayton craft pensive, pastoral folk songs about the gloom of rural life. And like a weekend in the wilderness, The Siren’s Song leaves you feeling drunk and sober, calm and tense, connected and, somehow, completely alone. That’s partly thanks to the album’s range; rollicking numbers like “White Butte Country” are cast against acoustic carols like “Cannery Yard.” But it’s the duo’s gift for songwriting that really strikes a nerve: “Got a call from mother wishing that I’m well/I didn’t have the heart to say this city’s a living hell/‘Cause there’s two kinds of people in this galaxy/Everybody else and me.”
