The Skydiggers - Bittersweet Harmony
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Skydiggers - Bittersweet HarmonyCountry-folk rockers The Skydiggers have always toiled in the shadows of their buddies in Blue Rodeo. But with their Buffalo Springfield vocals and Byrdsian jingle jangle, Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson have crafted their own impressive body of work. The band’s first studio album in five years, produced by Ian Blurton, features renewed energy on inspired tracks like “Fall Apart” and “Horseshoe Bay.” Add a guest appearance by eccentric genius Hawksley Workman and the result is a charming, confident comeback.
