City & Colour...



Let's all scream out a collective "Fuck Yeaaaaaaah!!!"
It's February.
It's 2008.
It's Dallas Green's new album....!!!!!!!!!111!!!!!!oneoneone!!!!!!!!!1111!!!!!!!one!!!!!1

Dallas Green cleverly goes by the solo name of City & Colour...
Dallas is a City - Green is a Colour.
Tremendous.

He is one fifth of St. Catherine's finest & Canada's biggest export, motherfucking "Alexisonfire"...
Possibly the best band to ever come out of the Maple State, they have written three of the most astonishing albums ever supported by a Canadian Government...
Proof of this is the current album "Crisis" going straight in at number 1 in the Canadian album charts.

Alexisonfire are the type of band you wish you were a part of...
This comes from their method of using multiple vocalists: Guitarist Dallas providing melodic, soft singing, and fellow-guitarist Wade MacNeil's implusively sweet punk rock vocals on one side, with the incredible frontman George Pettit's polar-opposite explosive screaming on the other.
The band describes their music as "the sound of two Catholic high-school girls in mid-knife-fight" which, in my opinion, is the best description of a band's sound EVER.



Easily one of my favourite bands around.
I would love to post a million of their videos because they are so good but I will settle for two..

This is the video for No Transitory - probably my favourite song of theirs...



And this video (Hey! It's your funeral mama) is just incredible. Funny as fuck but the main guitar riff is awesome...



Anyway, the reason I made this post is because Dallas has a new album coming out...
His solo material sounds nothing like his day-job in AOF...
It is singer/songwriter stuff - but it is completely different to the usual bland bullshit we are forced to accept from a male voice with an acoustic guitar...
Dallas' vocals are poetic and sincere...
It's rare for him to tour his solo material because Alexisonfire is full-time and he doesn't really need the money because he is one of the biggest selling artists in Canada...
You might find that hard to believe, but Alexisonfire (and Dallas) are bigger than your beloved Arcade Fire...!

This link is only going to be left up for 1 week and then it will go dead...
It's a very rare song Dallas wrote about 5 years ago...
The track 'Missing' (sometimes it is called Serravale) was written about Green's music teacher, Serravale, who died. One track CDs of this song were sold at his early shows and all proceeds went to the Denis Morris High School Starvathon that Serravalle had started, and continuously supported. Serravalle played a large part in teaching Green to believe in himself as a musician.

A lot of you may be surprised to find this out, but I have listed this song as one of my favourite songs of all-time...
I think it is flawless and ridiculously beautiful...

It's about time there was a City and Colour post. I don't think there is a better vocalist out there at the minute. Dallas Green is God.

Pedro said...

This is one of the best songs ever written.
I very rarely get chills when I listen to songs nowadays but this floors me every single time I hear it.
It is soooo fucking beautiful.

Jack said...

White Devil is the best Alexisonfire song. Orrrrrr Boiled Frogs. Can youtube videos be embedded in this comment section? Upload the Boiled Frogs video.

Q said...

OMFG Dude.i will totally stab someone in the face for city and colour tickets. Dallas better play here.

the alexis show earlier this year was fuckin brilliant.

much music championed them like a mofo. awesome.

Pedro said...

I am pushing for someone to bring him in next year - how fucking cool would that be!?!??!
Alexisonfire gig was awesome - not as busy as I thought it would have been though...
And although I was 21 at the time, I felt like the oldest person there.
Q, you're my favourite pseudo friend...you rock dude!

Q said...

i'm 34. i *was* the oldest person there. but the kids and their moshing were cool and i had a good spot at wade's side of the stage. the gig rocked.

right back atcha pedro. why don't you move to canada. apply for residencey and head over.
