CRITIC’S PICK: This Canadian indie-folk quintet has been making organic, strum-guitar-pop music best exemplified by their lovely, often compelling new release Uncertain Country for over 20 years. Like their name, they float and navigate easygoing waters with beautifully crafted melodies and a professionalism that two decades of experience brings. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Doubt, followed by discovery. Demos that ended up as finished tracks. New beginnings, rear-view reflections, and ruminations on the fluidity of time: Uncertain Country captures these feelings and so much more.

This celebration, 11-songs long, follows a prolonged period of collective anxiety. Though recorded in different locales — and with a variety of musicians — a theme of questioning runs throughout. Even before the world turned upside down, singer-songwriter Tony Dekker felt mired in uncertainty: from the climate crisis and the ever-changing political landscape to deep shifts within the music industry. The “uncertain country” Dekker chose as the album’s theme is not a specific place. Rather, it’s a territory we, as humans, inhabit in the 21st century — a world that, more often than not, is confusing, unfamiliar, and unsettling.
