Review: Shotgun Jimmie’s Transistor Sister

March 9th, 2011

Need to know: Jim Kilpatrick originally applied his “Shotgun” handle with former band Shotgun & Jaybird, who consisted of Fred Squire, Jesse Baird and Canadian institution Julie Doiron. The band broke up in 2007 after a number of releases, and Jimmie launched a solo career, writing about blue-collared life back in Nova Scotia. Releasing his debut album, The Onlys, the same year, he struck up a friendship with the guys in Attack in Black, who ended up backing him on his second album, the awesome Still Jimmie, which happened to find its way onto this writer’s Polaris Music Prize ballot. Transistor Sister was written on tour in Europe and recorded for the first time in “a fully operational professional studio.” This time Jimmie was backed by Ryan Peters (Ladyhawk, Lightning Dust) and Jay Baird (Feist, Do Make Say Think). Apparently a weed whacker was played through a wah pedal…

Via Twitter: Once again the plaid-lovin’ Jimmie offers up more of his lovable, everyday life stories, packaging them as scrappy, fuzzed out delights.

Sample: “Late Last Year”

RIYL: Pavement, Built To Spill, Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black),” Sammy
