The Weakerthans 

Recon-struction Site

Published September 25, 2003.The WeakerthansRecon-struction Site (Epitaph)The Weakerthans make some of the best music in this country. Reconstruction Site offers more of the same intricate arrangements (though less delicate, more pop-py here than on Left and Leav- ing), underlying political statements and mostly, especially, John K. Samson’s observant lyrics, which form 14 satisfying narratives perfectly enunciated and cleverly titled (“Plea from a Cat Named Virtue”). This is a man who makes “I hate Winnipeg” sound like the most profound thing you’ve ever heard. And maybe it is. —Tara Thornecategories: Canadian artist
