EDITORS’ NOTES

For The Sheepdogs’ third studio album, the heralded Saskatoon-based swamp/garage rock quartet recruited bespectacled Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney to co-produce. Mixed by Tchad Blake (Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello), it’s an inspired coming-together of similarly spirited collaborators. The deluxe version of this self-titled release includes acoustic versions of two of the new numbers and a music video for the hypnotically charismatic “The Way It Is.”

About The Sheepdogs

Built on the solid, classic rock foundation of three-part harmonies and dual guitar leads, Canada's the Sheepdogs blend Southern boogie rock, groove-based psychedelia, and bluesy barroom swagger into a modern rock & roll revival. Based out of the Saskatchewan city of Saskatoon, the band features the talents of Ewan Currie (vocals, guitar), Jimmy Bowskill (guitar), Ryan Gullen (bass), and Sam Corbett (drums), plus Ewan's brother Shamus on brass and keyboards. The group released three full-length independent albums (Trying to Grow [2006], Big Stand [2008], and Learn & Burn [2010]) before appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone in August 2011 after winning the magazine’s “Choose the Cover” competition. The hard-touring band released a new EP, Five Easy Pieces, later that year, followed by their eponymous fourth studio album in 2012. In July 2015, the band issued the single "Downtown" in anticipation of the release of their fifth long player, Future Nostalgia, later that October. ~ James Christopher Monger
