Blog Guelph: Into The Wild

It is the season for a school bus photo don't you think? Does anyone remember boarding such vehicles as a step into the wild, rather than a move towards civilization?

The Pure Guelphishness music playlist for this Monday's episode of hoofbeats radio features Andrew Coombes, starting with his tune "Into The Wild".

He creates earnest music with infectious riffs and melodies that linger with you long after you hear them.  I never got a chance to check out Beautiful Senseless in their heyday in our town, but I've been able to enjoy the recordings and his "graduation." into the realm of solo artist.  He's not from Guelph these days, but is still worth following. I think you can hear the influence of our town on his tunes.  You can find him on Bandcamp, to learn more. Or, listen back to the rare demos played on this morning!
