We’re long-time fans of the Canadian trio, Elliott BROOD over here at HearYa. Their brand of rocking alt-country has struck a nerve with me on every one of their albums and their live shows are not to be missed. Ghost Gardens will be out on 9/15 via the fine folks at Paper Bag Records. Here’s some more info on the album.

Ghost Gardens’ title alludes to a phenomenon whereby the perennial gardens of houses and buildings having been abandoned or forgotten for years or even decades, continue to grow and reappear year after year, despite their original caretakers’ absence.

The road to Ghost Gardens began with the rediscovery of lost demo songs from early in the band’s career, nearly a decade and a half ago. The misplaced hard drive had long been forgotten in a garage sitting dormant in an old suitcase. The rediscovered recordings were demos and rough sketches of song lyrics and melody ideas. On Ghost Gardens, Elliott BROOD get to relive their past through a lens that is wiser both musically and lyrically.
