Editors’ Notes

Saskatoon, Canada’s Deep Dark Woods occasionally reference fellow Canadian Neil Young in their latest songs, intentionally and inadvertently. “Miles and Miles”—the opening track on Jubilee, the band's fifth album—captures Young’s vibe with its moderate gait, grungy guitars, and high-pitched, aching vocals. But “18th of December” goes further to convey a sense of doomed fate, borrowing the melody of Young’s “Captain Kennedy” (unless the group is borrowing it from the 1927 folk ballad “My Name Is John Johanna,” which appeared on Harry Smith’s landmark Anthology of American Folk Music). Flashes of Townes Van Zandt fronting The Band occur during “Red, Red Rose.” But these influences are likely inevitable, happy accidents that happen when a band mines similar territory. But unlike many roots groups, The Deep Dark Woods emphasize a sense of modernity that informs songs such as “Gonna Have a Jubilee,” “I Took to Whoring,” and “Bourbon Street” with a golden touch that’s all their own and clearly the work of a band operating in 2013. Impressive.

Customer Reviews

Can't put my finger on why.

I've been waiting for this release for weeks. Can't put my finger on exactly why I enjoy the Deep Dark Woods so very much. Sad songs have always made me happy but it goes well beyond that. The melancholy of the words/stories and insturmentation just blends in a way that puts you in the song. And oh yes, is it just me, or does much of the best "Americana" music seem to be coming out of Canada the last several years? I'm travelling 250 miles from the middle of nowhere (a perfect place) to see them at HSB in Golden Gate Park (another perfect place) - Can't wait!
