The Benders – Three Sheets To The Wind (Independent)

From Edmonton, Alberta comes the slick rockabilly-influenced sound of The Benders. Singing songs of love, life and everything else that crosses their paths, the trio blasts through 11 tracks in a half-hour span. The songs come fast and furious but most of all, you can hear the band actually having fun, injecting humour into the record with tracks like Cowboy Up For Jesus, Mr Luve and Hot-Rod Hearse to help offset the somewhat more sinister commentary of Out On The Tarsands.
