The Deep Dark Woods 

Winter Hours (Black Hen)

Saskatoon's The Deep Dark Woods has created an album to help you fill winter's long, dark hours with appropriately sad, introspective music. Produced in Vancouver by Steve Dawson, the band's third album is reminiscent of Uncle Tupelo's Anodyne---not surprisingly, both were recorded live off the floor. Ryan Boldt's candid lyrics and understated delivery shine through on "Farewell," "How Can I Try" and "All the Money I Had is Gone." Beautiful harmonies from Chris Mason (bass) and Lucas Goetz (drums, pedal steel) fill out the vocal sound. Closer "The Sun Never Shines" jams on too long---but I don't always get it when Neil Young does that. Sarah Greene
