Victoria-based artist Dylan Perkons upcoming debut, The Healing Day is a collection of richly orchestral songs that reveal an experienced songwriter finally stepping out to record under his own name. Perkons has spent his career to date working under various aliases and projects honing his craft, so while The Healing Day is his first solo outing, it represents a much longer journey. Produced by Evening Hymns’ Jonas Bonnetta at the secluded Port William Sound, The Healing Day is slated for digital release October 18thAnimal Parts
What’s true of this reformed quartet is “what’s old ain’t exactly new again.” Headed still by Josh Cockerill, the AP cadres have taken their summer to lounging poolside, growing facial hair, basting in chlorinic waters, then being blasted by the sun. Rinse & Repeat. A quotidian lifestyle of such adds breeze between the chords, a lilt to the backbeat, and an imp of stupefacience to the vocal choirings. There’s new music on the docket, two new records to be sure, and persistent rumours of a book of poetry. Who knows?? By the looks of it, not even JCo himself, who’s somnambulant & blowing bubbles in a kiddy pool. So stay tuned cherished listeners! If it’s true every band has its day, then maybe a good band might just have two.
