"Imagine yourself around a campfire built from pallets and rubber tires, everyone’s drunk on whiskey, singing and dancing like they do in old Western films. One person has even managed to drag a piano out into the wilderness. Except this party is raging on in your living room and the fire alarms have been yanked out of the ceiling. Unharnessed and wild, a bluegrass band lead by a drunkard’s crackling voice calls out beyond the roaring flames."
This is the sound of Vancouver's Jesse LeBourdais conjuring the best of the wild west and dusty 30's folk through the shouts of his words and the notes coming forth. Drawing from modern punk, old-time country and timeless bluegrass, LeBourdais’ second full length, I Go By the Sound is collection of thoughtful, and passionate anthems that remind you that this kind of music is meant to be enjoyed with clapping hands and stomping feet.
