“Volcano, Volcano”

Steven Lambke rose to prominence as the guitarist of the mighty Canadian outfit The Constantines. The Juno-Award nominated band are a muscular blend of Fugazi, the Replacements and Creedence
Clearwater Revival, and they’re one of those bands that are redolent with integrity and heart. It’s important to note that by the time the Cambridge-Ontario born Lambke joined the Constantines in ’99, he’d been in a band called Captain Co-Pilot and had finished his university degree in Physics at the University of Guelph. Over the years he would take a busman’s holiday from the band to release albums on his own under the name Baby Eagle, which featured guest appearances from Folks like John K. Sampson of The Weakerthans and Julie Dorion. Lambke’s artist run label You’ve Changed Records put out several more of his albums, including his brand new one, Volcano Volcano. A swirling blend of fractured folk, spritely indie rock and low-fi bedroom pop all recorded using dollar store shakers and guitars procured at Goodwill, Volcano Volcano is a charming blend of raw and nervy songs that infectiously rip through the delicious chaos. This album is uplifting and weird and lovely and real—and whether it’s the percussive The World Filled To The Brim, or the rolling perfection of Bats In Blue Twilight, this is one of the most delightful, inspiring and wonderfully raucous albums of 2022.
