The Wooden Sky is aÂ Canadian-basedÂ bandÂ that came to existence afterÂ lead singerÂ Gavin Gardiner wroteÂ songs for a school project while still attending University.Â Let’s Be ReadyÂ marks the fourth studio album since these humble beginnings back in 2003. After hearing this stuff, you’ll understandÂ why they’ve toured with projects as The Rural Alberta Advantage, Yukon Blonde, and Elliott Brood. It all fitsÂ pretty damnÂ perfectly. With this particular record, the band took an altogether different approach in comparison to their previous albums as they wanted to produce a studio album that captured a clearer representation of their live shows. They wanted to bottle up the energy that exists in the moment and expands far beyond what aÂ medium can produce.
Now,Â I know many of you may be deterred by the pricing here… as it’s definitely tough for anybody and everybody who isn’t living in Canada. But, I want to mention that this album is being purely handled by the band through their own imprint, Chelsea Records. SO, if you want to justify this purchase… remember that your money is 100% going in support of the band and whatever other bands they may be supporting via this label. If nothing else, do check the record out! After all, we’re simply happy to know that you’re all discovering something (potentially) new!!
With the Limited Deluxe Edition you’ll receiveÂ Let’s Be Ready housed in a gatefold jacket with a full color poster,Â lyric sheetÂ andÂ a piece of the original master tape. That latter bitÂ of information is certainly something new that I’ve personally never seen made available with a record before. Also, a standard, non-gatefold version of the record is available too.
Down below you’ll find a few tracks from the album available for your streaming pleasure. If you’d like to delve further into this… you can find the entirety of this album streaming via Soundcloud right HERE!!
â€śWithin the band, we talk often of how ugly the world can be and our responsibility to make something beautiful. And when it comes down to being on tour and playing shows, weâ€™re only in your town for the night so we figure letâ€™s make it a night to remember. Thatâ€™s where our album title â€śLetâ€™s Be readyâ€ť comes from, that need to embrace life and all that youâ€™ve built within itâ€ť-Gavin Gardiner
