I found your finger but without its ring

Literal band photo win
Over the past few weeks, Exclaim! has published two of my interviews with Apollo Ghosts: the first was a news story about the recently-released Mount Benson and the second was an album review with an accompanying Q&A.

I’ve already posted one track from the awesome Mount Benson. Here’s another, the shapeshifting “Witchcraft Lake,” which starts as jittery post-punk before transforming into thundering riff rock and finally wistful jangle pop in barely over two minutes. Its weird, fractured leads show why frontman Adrian Teacher is one of my favourite guitarists in the city.

The Polaris Music Prize is gearing up for its 2010 installment, and hopefully Apollo Ghosts will be getting their share of love from the jury (they’ve got my vote for sure). They’re on the cover of the May issue Discorder (which is where the photo on the left comes from), so hopefully this well-deserved attention is just the start of a big year for the band.
