Their straight forward lyrical approach is a welcome treat and the band’s sound is a perfect blend that harvests the classic crops of rock and country.

Stalwart rockers Cowboy Junkies bring their latest bluesy rock mood setter to Radio 3 with “The Confession of Georgie E.” From The Wilderness, Volume 4, the track is smokey and dreamily paced with deliberate guitars, organs and velvet vocals that shows just how good a quarter of a century can sound.

From Montreal comes Harvest Breed with “You Know?” a twangy rock throwback to the days of ’70s guitar sing-alongs. Off the album Everything Changes, the track has a warm inviting sound with traditional instrumental makeup, featuring earnest lyrics, steely guitars and group vocals that almost beg audiences to take part.
