Poorfolk “Our Burning Streets”: OUT TODAY!

Filed under: News, Poorfolk : September 16, 2008

On September 16th, Ottawa-via-Montreal’s Poorfolk celebrate their long-sweated sophomore release titled “Our Burning Street”, available from White Whale Records and distributed by Outside Music. If Poorfolk’s first album was a work of classic bedroom rock, these new recordings now showcase a different sound entirely: singer-guitarist Jonathan Pearce’s personal/political lyrics are still recognizable, but are now bolstered by a muscular rhythm section, frantic, dueling guitar interplay and gang-chanting choruses. It was recorded at Ottawa’s Legendary Little Bullhorn Productions by Jarrett Bartlett and Dave Draves and mastered by Harris Newman in Montreal.

“The ideal end of summer soundtrack.” - Montreal Mirror

“Our Burning Street suggests that Poorfolk have it in them to conquer rock radio across North America.” - I Heart Music (blog)

“Sounding like a bastard offspring of Rheostatics and the Futureheads, Poorfolk deliver an interesting and brave interpretation of pop musicwith rich vocal harmonies sprinkled on top. Pleasant and inventive.” -
