"8 of Hearts" is the 8th release from Canada´s best kept secret, Blinker The Star.
Whenever I meet someone and talk about this band, they look at me like I am a three-headed monster. Ok, I admit that they don´t sell the same amount of records as Nickelback but that doesn´t mean Blinker The Star should pass you by like a comet in the sky.
Bandleader Jordon Zadorozny has so much quality and uniqueness in his songwriting that he´s like the Picasso of music, I am so full of admiration for this guy that I hope someday he gets the recognition he deserves.
Last year, Jordon was involved in the awesome "The Baron of The Fjord" album with the band SheLoom, a 70´s pop/rock record for fans of 10cc.
Jordon goes in a different musical direction on "8 of Hearts" where he is surfing around in various genres like electronica, psych-pop and dream-prog.
Imagine a musical soup of Gary Numan, Rupert Hine, Everclear, It Bites and Digital Noise Academy and you´ll get the new album from Blinker The Star.
How cool isn´t that?!
