Scott Smith thinks he might have a slight case of attention deficit disorder – at least, as far as his music is concerned.
Bottleneck – Late Nights Early Mornings
It’s been too long since we’ve sung the glories of Vancouver’s eclectic and talented roots-leaning scene, but Bottleneck are as good as anyone we’ve heard from British Columbia for quite some time.
Bottleneck have a winner with the release of Late Nights, Early Mornings.
Adeptly composed songwriting and musical arrangements that support a forefront of vocal expertise. This band has it all together and we hope they keep it that way for years to come. An album that is sure to climb the roots charts.
Singer/songwriter, Robyn Carrigan, has a powerful and evocative voice. Lyrically, her songs are rich and full of literary beauty. “Diamond Ring” is a gorgeous reflection of heartache. “Love is too short, Death is too long, You can’t explain it in a song.” The imagery she conjures up has a cinematic vibe, along with many poetic muses.
