8/10 - EXCLAIM!
"defies categorization. The most definite expectation you can have is of music that's textured, beautiful, nearly magical." " Crabtree has a voice that never fails to cut through and take hold" " an album that could make you either weep or rejoice, depending on the state of your heart. It is a confident, stunning collection. Do go on, and listen." - CBC MUSIC
While the eponymous debut album was concerned with ends, Go On focuses on starting again; putting your head down and pushing forward. The songs alternately shimmer and float, while reserving the right to occasionally punch you in the gut for good measure.
Produced by Crabtree, Go On was set in motion in London, Ontario in 2013 with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes). Fleshed out in Nova Scotia, tracks were bounced around Montreal, New York, and even rural Lancashire, before the album was mixed by Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Rich Aucoin).
