Music: "Seven Sea Blues" by Monster Truck

I'm never sure how many non-Canadians know about Canadian music. My conversations with other music lovers seem to indicate that the majority of Canadian music is either unknown outside of Canada or difficult to come by once you pass over our border.

Granted, I have a somewhat skewed view of the situation, what with my hefty preference for rock. It could be that plenty of non-Canadians have heard of the likes of Monster Truck but I hobnob with people whose musical taste is nothing like my own.

Story of my life, right there.

Anyways, today I want to share a track from the abovementioned Monster Truck in the hopes of spreading the love to those of you who aren't familiar with them. Monster Truck caught my attention a little over half a year ago with "Seven Sea Blues," which is a pirate song if ever there was one. You can just feel the roll of the ship beneath your feet; smell the crashing waves; weather the urge to rush off and do seriously awesome shit, preferably while headbanging in slow motion.

I love it, y'all.

I also highly recommend "Righteous Smoke," "Sweet Mountain River," and my personal favourite, "The Lion." The band hasn't yet made a video for "The Lion" available on YouTube, but you'd better believe I'll share it with you when they do. If, at the end of my life, one can say of me, "Monster Truck's 'The Lion' was her theme song," I will be content.

    1. Sigh. I need to befriend more rock-lovers (while keeping the non-rock people close, of course).
