Culture Reject is the solo project of Toronto musician Michael O'Connell, formerly of Guelph band Black Cabbage. Culture Reject comes from a realm of quiet, quirky indie-pop and brings in a host of impressive assistance, including Jim Guthrie as a backup instrumentalist and Andy Magoffin, producer for the Constantines and Great Lake Swimmers. Songs alternately show influences of blues, salsa, pop, folk and carousels; there's an ethereal quality to the whole album. O'Connell is an accomplished musician and the tracks here are carefully crafted. Although nothing quite jumps out, it's a good soundtrack to a rainy afternoon or quiet spring night.
