The Flints - Shutting Down Airports (2009)

The Flints live in the cities of Toronto and Hamilton, along the north shore and at the westernmost tip of Lake Ontario, respectively. They’ve been performing around Ontario for about five years, and have played NXNE, Canadian Music Week, the GO! Music Festival in Kitchener, and the Brampton Indie Arts Festival. They have released a 5-song EP, a Christmas single, and most recently a new full length album in 2009.

Recorded by Peter Hudson at Hallamusic Recording in Toronto, Shutting Down Airports delivers twelve tightly knit folk-pop songs that trace their way around classic themes: love, heartache, loss, and redemption. While not precisely a concept album, Airports is definitely a regional journey. It’s flavored with images and sounds from life in the Golden Horseshoe, home to Canada’s most industrialized corridor and also some of its most beautiful geography. The album is front-loaded with two songs titled after the Great Lakes that define the region: Erie, a personal lament about being deceived by beauty, and Ontario, a poem to the idea and geography of the province.

Красивый мелодичный indie с небольшой примесью folk rock. Это их дебютный альбом, если не считать рождественский 5-song EP. Найти этот альбом было сложно даже не смотря на то, что он вышел 2 месяца назад.

Очень понравилcя трек "Your Old Crowd".
