High Strung - Standing at the Door of Self Discovery

When producer David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Los Campesinos!) agreed to helm the latest High Strung album, a strange/wonderful meeting was set to take place. In the height of a brutal Canadian winter, the High Strung brought a decidedly different batch of songs with them to the small church-studio of the legendary indie producer. Josh Malerman (songwriter) has written his first group of "personal" numbers, songs that addressed bizarre psychological states as well as revealing/comforting ideas of a man turning himself "inside out" -- the idea of celebratory self-examination. Ode to the Inverse of the Dude sounds a lot like what it's about; there's no doubt Newfeld stretched a band who was ready to be stretched and the outcome is a fantastic/blissful proclamation.

Check out High Strung's "Ode to the Inverse of the Dude," out April 21, 2009 on Park The Van, with a free download of the release's lead off track "Standing at the Door of Self Discovery."
