Details about the album:
Jon McKiel makes an impassioned return with Memorial Ten Count, (named for the fabled toll that marks the death of a champion boxer), equal parts blister-forming-grit and punch-drunk-wistfulness.
In these trouble days, first single “Conduit” offers a system of love, an anthemic and relentless peace sign to America, with intricate guitar arrangements and anxious psychedelic vocals.
Hailing from Sackville, NB, Jon McKiel is the steady, stalwart son of the East Coast. A long-time collaborator with a steady rotation of acts – including the celebrated supergroup, Weird Lines – he is the purveyor of some of Canada’s most brilliant, emotive, but still somehow unassuming indie rock.
Memorial Ten Count is the follow up to McKiel’s self-titled 10” (2014), the Tonka War Cloud LP (2011), and the Confidence Lodge EP (2011).
