Five Easy Pieces
Label: Atlantic Records
Five Easy Pieces picks up where Saskatoon's Sheepdogs' last full-length, 2010's Learn & Burn, left off. If you freak for Buffalo Killers, Rivals Sons and other modern acts revisiting the classic sound of Southern-fried boogie and country rock, then this nifty little EP is definitely for you. "I Don't Know" is the track that shines the brightest. It's a wonderful blend of Skynyrd machismo and the Dead's pastoral vibes. "The Middle Road" is lots of fun, too, but it's soft rock reminiscent of Hall & Oates' 1970s material and Honky Chateau-era Elton John.
