Lots of activity over at Secretly Canadian as they announce the signing of I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness and Richard Swift. One band who they have not announced joining the stable but who apparently has is Catfish Haven.
Catfish Haven is the name of the trailor park where George Hunter grew up. The band describes themselves as “soulful howling over an acoustic guitar turned way up”.
They’ve got the earnest sound of your typical midwestern roots band with an edge and a hint of something more lurking below the surface. You can buy their debut ep from the band’s website. Here’s two demo’s that are listed as coming from their f0rthcoming record, Please Come Back, on Secretly Canadian January 2006.
