I used to gnaw on every word

What are you looking at, punk?
Cowboy Junkies‘ upcoming record is called Demons and it’s a tribute to the late Vic Chesnutt. It contains eleven cover songs including this one, “Wrong Piano.” It’s a classic country rocker, laden with fuzzed-out guitar leads and whirling organ. Equal parts joy and regret, it’s a fitting tribute to a friend.

Go to Exclaim! to read my list of the top ten most anticipated Canadian albums of the year. Demons comes in at number nine.

Chesnutt’s original version appears on the album Is the Actor Happy? from 1995.
