Cowboy Junkies 

Demons: Nomad Series Volume 2 (Latent)

When Vic Chesnutt died a little over a year ago, it was a devastating after-shock to a community which had only just accepted a world without Elliott Smith and Mark Linkous. His life, like his art, was a cerebral mix of not-so-deftly negotiated tragedy and dry comedic wit. And those who adored him, did so for the humanity and honesty he possessed in the face of his own demons. Which brings us to this latest Cowboy Junkies record---an album that was supposed to have been a collaboration but instead became a loving and heartfelt tribute comprised of 11 versions of Vic’s songs, ranging from uptempo hopefulness (“Wrong Piano”) to the heart-wrenching (“Square Room”). Delivered in classic Cowboy Junkies style, Demons is more than just a moving tribute. It is a celebration.
