The Liptonians are holding a cd release bash at the West End Cultural Centre tonight for Let's All March Back Into the Sea. Opneing will be Rusty Matyas (Waking Eyes, Imaginary Cities). The album's an undeniable mix of well-crafted pop melodies, insistent keyboards,dynamic percussion, vocals both delicate and invulnerable, and well-placed horns, as well as some unpredictable noises. This one will go down as one of the great records ever created in this province - I predict it's going to grace some best-of-the-year lists. For more info, check out an interview at Painting With Silence, and if you like it, vote for that blog on the Searchlight Best Music Website polls (Scruffy has been kicked off that island).
