The Weakerthans: Sun in an Empty Room

WeakerthansReunion Tour is another superb tome from indie rock’s most singular narrators, the Weakerthans. Their newest album from 2007 was recorded after-hours above a closed factory in the cold Canadian spring, weaving the frontier loneliness of the environment into rich lyrical yarns four years in the making.

Songs such as “Sun in an Empty Room” and “Civil Twilight” tell of individual journeys with a melancholic empathy that Paste magazine has described as “songs of brutal beauty, little rock n roll vignettes that perfectly capture the malaise of the peculiar, disorienting times in which we live.” [epitaph]
