Aaron Howes – Losing Sleep [Review]

51M644Fxz2L._SS500

Artist: Aaron Howes
Album: ‘Losing Sleep’
Genre: Folk Rock / Indie Folk
Stand out tracks “I’ve Been Busy” and “Tired as You”

Straight out of Guelph, ON, singer/songwriter Aaron Howes along with a group of his friends who just all happen to be experienced musicians delivers the most straight-ahead indie/folk record you’re going to hear this year. With great lines and measures, the stories he weaves feel real and true to the touch, the music, 10 tracks of somewhat reflective verse with the upbeat pace that leaves you wanting more. Aaron’s vocals are rich, ragged, and emotional in even measures, the production by Don Bray gives ‘Losing Sleep’ an opportune feel that makes’s it a timeless release.

I’ve gotta give a shout out to singer Cassie Dasilva for her flawless vocals, she set the tone for every track she appeared on.

Aaron along with some of the folks that played on the album (Scott Cooper, Dave Christie, Cassie Dasilva and Aaron Mangoff) will be playing a set during the third annual Roots North Music Festival in Orillia, ON. You can catch them at Alleycats Music & Art at 3:30 on Saturday, April 22nd! The show is free and I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to pick up a hard copy (CD) of ‘Losing Sleep’.

Handwritten letter by Kurt Cobain of Nirvana to David Geffen

A single-sheet, two-sided handwritten letter by Kurt Cobain addressed to David Geffen, creator of DGC Records. In the letter, Cobain expresses to his “big boss” Geffen his anger about a September 1992 Vanity Fair magazine article, written by Lynn Hirschberg. The article titled “Strange Love” accuses his wife, musician Courtney Love, of taking drugs while pregnant with their baby. In the letter to Geffen, Cobain states that Love stopped using right after she found out about her pregnancy and was visiting a pediatrician, and he himself has been in rehab for 18 days. He ends the letter with “I’m so extremely pissed off about this piece of trash journalism that I’ll lay anything on the line for the love of my wife and daughter.”
