Change comes to all of us

Rustic shirts party
Vancouver’s got lots of pop bands and more than its share of punk and metal acts, but we don’t have much in the way of baroque rock. Where are all of our cellists and flugelhorn players?

41st and Home is an exception to the rule. Here’s the slow-building “Sleeper,” which swells from a folksy ballad to an orchestral crescendo. Now that Sufjan Stevens has gone electronic, you can get your baroque fix here. I get the funny feeling I’ve heard of a song called “Sleeper” before. (Inside joke, don’t worry about it.)

A while back, I reviewed the band’s show with City of Glass, Treelines and Jordan Klassen for BeatRoute.
