Story 

Things Left Unsaid... (indie)

Sam Wight, formerly of local punk bands Cross, Eviction Party and Missed Life, picked up an accordion last year and put down her guitar. Things Left Unsaid... is the culmination of a rough year in her life, chronicling a breakup, a death and a move back home to PEI. Accordions run the risk of being too dominating or comical, but Wight's honed her playing to become an eloquent backdrop to her precise, evocative songwriting. The mood of the EP is melancholy, but there's hope buried within her autumnal lyrics, and a sort of fairytale quality to her voice---rather a departure from hardcore. Local references get me every time. Story plays Friday at Gus'.
