A Sheep At The Wheel

One of the great things about independent music is you never know what you are going to get. When I turn on the radio I know exactly what I'm getting. It's nice to press play and hear something that sounds fresh and new. Enter, A SHEEP AT THE WHEEL. A band from Vancouver B.C., Canada. With a 5 song EP titled Blend under their belts this band has garnered much attention. They have played at the largest of venues the city of Vancouver has to offer, and pleased many with their thought provoking lyrics, and hook laden songs.

A song that stood out for me in particular was Land of the Blind. A riff heavy slab of vinyl with a solid groove , chunky guitars and mature vocals. This song rolls along effortlessly and showcases some slick song writing. Other Highlights include Another Game and the current single Machine Guns & Jesus Christ. A video for this song can be found on the bands MYSPACE page. Overall, Blend is a solid effort. Its fresh and easily accessible. The groundwork has been laid for this band to have a bright future.

I <3 A Sheep at the Wheel! I'm a fan from Arizona who was lucky enough to see three of their gigs while in Vancouver this summer. Everyone go visit their webpage and watch their music video and podcasts! They rock!
