Geoff Berner
Whiskey Rabbi
(Black Hen)
Victoria, BC’s nouveau-klezmer troubadour continues his unrelenting campaign against boredom and his own liver on this, his third release. He slurs through the opening title track, setting the mood for the whiskey-filled romp to come. Berner’s dark humour is punctuated by his trademark drunk- en accordion button-mashing in the rollicking “Drunk All Day” and “Lucky Goddamn Jew.” The touching “Unlistenable Song” is the only lighthearted respite from this black comedy.
