With its sixth album and second release for Moonjune Records, this Canadian outfit once again imparts a steadfast approach to the modern rock idiom. Drawing influences from a boundless array of genres such as psychedelia, ’70s progressive rock, space rock and offbeat inferences to pop-rock, the unit at times demonstrates an unrelenting wall of sound. Featuring juiced-up crunch chords and hyper-pulses, the band fuses Sonic Youth-style noise guitar with tricky time signatures and delectably cheesy, ’60s-style organ grooves. A few of the glaring attributes of this band’s delivery are rooted within mechanical breakdowns and subtle melodic hooks, as they often break the sound barrier during the oscillating processes.

With A Killer’s Dream, Rachel Brooke builds upon her recent accomplishments while pushing her own songwriting and performances to new heights. Recorded live in the studio, the album crackles with the energy and nimbleness of Rachel and her band, Viva Le Vox, as they jump all over the southern-drawn musical map. The musicians run through a rewarding set that is top-notch in sound and stylistic versatility. A Killer’s Dream is sure to elevate Rachel’s music to a much larger audience and hopefully, raise the public awareness of this songstress’ talents.

Singer-songwriter Kate Campbell learned the piano at age seven before switching to the guitar as a teenager during the folk-rock heyday of the 70s. On 1000 Pound Machine Campbell returns to the instrument of her childhood and enlists Will Kimbrough to produce the eleven-song disc. Campbell’s subtle piano and crystal-clear voice are accentuated by sparse arrangements featuring Kimbrough’s consummate guitar playing and soulful sounds from the legendary Spooner Oldham.
