Song: Barking At Your Door
After eight years of touring and three albums, this superb Toronto band went on indefinite hiatus last year. More’s the pity; they have a gently magical and sonorous aura. This is a fresh cover of an original song by fellow Canadian artist Nathan Lawr. It’s a perfect vehicle for Ohbijou’s hushed, intimate and intricate sensibilities. Love the cadence of those drums, the clarity of the instruments and the riveting lyrics. I’ll let this track speak for itself. Catch the live rendition from the 2010 Calgary Folk Fest, below - the sound quality isn’t brilliant but the spirit of the song shines through. For those who want a quieter, more intimate living room take on the tune, check this out.
