Artist: Muskox

Song: Muskox Jr.

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), October 14, 2012.

Muskox - Muskox Jr.

Full review to follow. Like Chipper Jones bowing out after a 124 OPS+ season, Mike Smith has decided to retire his chamber-prog ensemble while they are still a formidable force. That left an undercurrent of sadness to this wrap-up show at The Tranzac, but it was still a light-hearted and spirited time. Mars' mountains were listed, Joni Mitchell's spirit was called upon (in a room just a stone's throw from her old digs!) and the band's friendly competition with Rush was finally brought to an end. After the fact, the music still lingers.
