Rain Over St. Ambrose
Drenched in coastal haze, Still Waking Up pulsates with an urgent thunderous drive. The sophomore full-length from Rain Over St. Ambrose reverberates with anthemic sing-alongs, swampy fuzzed-out riff rock, and swirling synths. From the buzzsaw guitars of “29 Takes,” to the falsetto backups on the hook-heavy “Petty Thief,” to the stoner-infused breaks on “Broken Love” and “Death of a Salesman,” the album is enormous in tone and uninhibited in its approach. Raw, contemplative, and feverish, Still Waking Up once again showcases the band’s commitment to “honest, from-the-gut rock and roll” (The Chronicle Herald).
Produced by Tim D’Eon (Wintersleep) and recorded by Diego Medina at the Old Confidence Lodge in Riverport, NS, the album was mixed at the Castle of Doom in Scotland by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle and Sebastien, Hey Rosetta!) and mastered at Sterling Audio in New York by Greg Calbi (War on Drugs, St. Vincent, Paul Simon).
