The Wooden Sky is a Canadian-based band that came to existence after lead singer Gavin Gardiner wrote songs for a school project while still attending University. Let’s Be Ready marks the fourth studio album since these humble beginnings back in 2003. After hearing this stuff, you’ll understand why they’ve toured with projects as The Rural Alberta Advantage, Yukon Blonde, and Elliott Brood. It all fits pretty damn 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 a medium can produce.

Now, 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 receive Let’s Be Ready housed in a gatefold jacket with a full color poster, lyric sheet and a piece of the original master tape. That latter bit 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!!



“Within 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, we’re only in your town for the night so we figure let’s make it a night to remember. That’s where our album title “Let’s Be ready” comes from, that need to embrace life and all that you’ve built within it”-Gavin Gardiner
