Jump up and say WEST!

The Collective West perform at the Artery tonight, to celebrate the release of their sophomore album, Fire & The Ocean.

The band is excited. Any respectable member of the Edmonton music community is too.

As banjo extraordinaire Erin Faught told this blog’s think-tank: “I feel especially proud of Fire & The Ocean because I think it truly represents The Collective West as the collective we really are– the previous album was a collaboration of all of us on songs that Alex and I had originally written for our solo careers but all of the songs on this album were developed by us as a team. Also Alex recorded and produced this baby entirely in his basement so that’s pretty dang impressive.”

The Alex whom Faught is talking about is Alex Klassen. They teamed up a few years ago, along with Dave Sustrik  and Alex Charlton. If you’ve seen the movie the Avengers, it was just like that. In the time they’ve been writing music and performing together, they’ve not only been getting better and better, but they’ve left audiences with an infectious positivity no one tries to escape from.

If you don’t have tickets yet, there might be some left from yeglive.ca. The show is with Fish & Bird and Lindsey Walker. Doors at the Artery open at 7:30.

Listen to their new song, “Call it Home,” here.
