From Regina, Saskatchewan, Rah Rah will release their new CD “The Poet’s Dead” in October. (Digital release Oct. 2, hard copy release Oct 22.)
“The Poet’s Dead was recorded in the fall of 2011 under the production guidance of indie-rock recording geniuses Gus Van Go and Werner F (The Stills, Hollerado, Preistess). Rah Rah have truly fine-tuned the essence of the band and refined the maturity of their sound with this record. If Arcade Fire is musically informed by Springsteen, Rah Rah draws a musical footnote from Neil Young while weaving an endlessly impressive amount of contemplation and maturity into their heart-on-their-sleeve songs. Lyrically, The Poet’s Dead showcases some of the finest songwriting from the band and the strongest collective step forward to date.” (via Rah Rah.)
