The entire afternoon had probably under 100 steady crowd watchers, until 'Corduroy' came on. There's something beautiful about the restless yet calming voice of Corduroy's Trevor Blumas, and the rest of the boys help complete a medly of rough acoustic symphonies, with quirky lyrical insertions, thunderous booms, and sporadic rock explosions. I Wasn't the only one interested in the Toronto group-half way through their first track "Lighthouse Keeper" countless folks began making their way to the main stage, jiving a bit on the way, and simultaneously nodding their heads in an approving fashion. I looked about as a diverse crowd both in age and image began chanting and clapping to tunes that were brand new to most, but felt comfortably familiar at the same time. In sum, the boys rocked my socks off and kept me engaged in their cycle of low-fi and heightened compositions that were creative, cohesive and compelling. - Martini Boys Online
