Music Watch: Sam Roberts

When I poke through my music collection there's always a few albums I go to when I just can't pick something to listen to. In the past it's been Dave Matthews & Tim Reynold's excellent live accoustic album or the Canadian favorite The Tragically Hip among others. This summer it's been all about Sam Roberts' first album "We Were Born in a Flame" which has really taken off in Canada. The album has a Crowded House feel along with some Beatles and other inspirations mixed in while not coming across as derivative. Solid lyrics, not over-produced and good ol' fashioned rocking makes this a solid addition to anyone's collection. Hit the official site and check out some of the song samples if you want to be cool like Certis.

As far as I know the CD has also been released in the States minus one or two "Canadian" songs so keep your eyes open for it!
