Sunburn
(Maple)
As key as Cape Bretoner Samp- son has been to east coast music in his six years between albums, Sunburn could easily be from an Ontario or California artist. It’s free of fiddle and hometown homilies and packed with sonic sophistication and high-art metaphors. “Paris” uses the city to woo and is destined to be sung in front of a symphony. Humour would go a long way to ease the gushing tone in some songs, but enough engaging moments emerge to keep Sunburn playing with pleasure for months.
