A travelling roadshow that's migrated from Alberta's big sky to Montreal's big heart, Ben Spencer's Funeral is ever an importer of sound and song. If pressure and time can turn rocks into diamonds, then these songs are a treasure trove, polished bright by haunted prairie winds and sharpened by blue winter nights. This is the soundtrack of an active mind and an open heart. Never succumb to morbidity or despair. Funerals, after all, are the domain of the living.
