Rain Over St. Ambrose 

Overton Window (Acadian Embassy)

rainover_musicreview.jpg

Yarmouth lost its ferry, but holds onto the will to rock. Named oddly for a theory of political options, the title tune navigates some tricky tempo changes beneath a chorus of "the body of Christ won't save your soul." It is catchy enough to dissuade the religious chant (or is it denial?) from slowing your tapping foot. A camping trip and late night confessions drive "Campfires" along with a thundering keyboard-guitar tradeoff. The four songs run less than 14 robust minutes, none of it wasted. The sense is that resources, not ideas, kept Rain Over St. Ambrose from going longer. --

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
