Record At­ten­dance Prairie Shag prairieshag.tum­

Most of the tunes on Record At­ten­dance would ably sound­track the cliffhanger end­ing of an episode of a teen drama; there’s some­thing malev­o­lent and fore­bod­ing in these songs — an un­rest lurk­ing un­der the cover of surf-tinged, an­gu­lar garage. This the sec­ond al­bum of 2016 (and sec­ond over­all) for Regina, Saskatchewan’s Tree­beard — there are also Mis­souri and U.K. Tree­beards, all pre­sum­ably named af­ter the Lord of the Rings char­ac­ter — and their mar­riage of off-the-cuff lyrics and care­free de­liv­ery is def­i­nitely en­dear­ing, al­beit ubiq­ui­tous.
