Written in Nicaragua and Jamaica, recorded in a shed in Halifax, NS with one microphone. Using samples to create the backdrops to acoustic layers underneath travel journal poetry, Pedestrian wanders through styles to tell it’s story.
“There are plenty of chances taken on the album, from folk and country sounds, through to songs that almost seem as though they’re constructed from dueling breakbeats. Importantly though, I never felt like I was listening to an experiment, that organic base mentioned in the quote above ensures that each song manages to keep a melodic essence, and that makes for enjoyable listening. In fact, this is an album that rewards repeated listens, as I was picking up nuances in the songs, in the lyrics especially, on the second or third time through.” – Hero Hill
