Hauntario is hauntingly beautiful

I first listened to The Wheat Pool‘s upcoming album Hauntario two nights ago. I popped in the CD and let it play as I got myself ready for bed. Being an alt-country record dripping with melancholy memories, Hauntario was kind of an odd “tuck-me-into-bed” musical choice. But I have to admit there was something soothing about listening to an album that releases the ghosts of emotions’ past into the silence of your apartment at midnight. It reminded me that, even though our true emotions may be drowned out during the day by ringing phones, zooming cars and insincere human interaction, at the end of the day we’re all still capable of feeling something.

Hauntario is an impressive follow-up to the Edmonton band’s 2007 debut album Township. The record’s not out until October 6, but if you want to sneak a listen to “This Is It” and “Lefty,” wander over to the Singled Out page.
