Gather Gather Bones Rattle Rattle Truth may take a few songs to gather some steam, but when it does, look out. You’re on board with one of the most rollicking and expansive rock and roll projects Canada has produced in recent memory. The Racoon Wedding, a dynamic five-piece out of Brantford, Ontario lay the gauntlet down with a fresh and impulsive take on indie rock anthems on this, its debut full-length. “Basement or the Attic,” the record’s third track, is where the Racoon Wedding grab you by the underpants and refuse to let go. Imagine if the Arcade Fire had been raised by a bunch of alcoholic fathers who played them Tom Petty bootlegs and took them to hootenanny’s, and you’ll begin to get an idea of the Racoon Wedding. The fun doesn’t stop on Gather Gather Bones Rattle Rattle Truth, so sing along, dance wildly, and leave your worries at the door with this one.
