Glory Hope Mountain
If you took Ottawa band The Acorn and Glory Hope
Mountain and planted them right here in Halifax soil, you’d have a tall tree to blend in with some of this city’s best artists. A more countrified or folksy Mike O’Neill, Joel Plaskett or Brent Randall, with some of Matt Mays’ dramatic acoustic avenues thrown in---whatever you want to call it, if you live in this city and pay pretty close attention to hometown tunes, you’re not going to hear a whole lot new here. If you really, really want more of what you love (tracks three to five, especially), then The Acorn should grow well alongside the above.
