Following the gentle cacophony of low-key album opener, “Good Morning”, Whitney K’s Two Years formally announces itself with a Velvets chug on “Trans-Canada Oil Boom Blues” — but hold on, hoss, it’s a few tracks deeper in that we find the heart of the album, “Cowboy City Rockers”. Recounting tales of a weird creekside fellowship, the ballad finds the Montreal based troubadour lightly accompanied by piano/guitar and backing vox. Per its lyrical origins, the artist reflects that the tune was inspired by “the formation of a Vancouver based performance project of the same name…a song about people organizing and reconstructing their relationships with the world outside of cultural orthodoxy”. … Meditating by the creek, no leader to be found.
