"I am enjoying the tunes. Very promising music made by such young men."
-canadian musician whose music we really, really like Greg Macpherson

"Right Through's four song debut EP is the kind of music we used to put on cassettes and lend to our friends. Recorded in a bathroom, the tape sounds covered in dirt and scratches. And it's bloody charming. The opener, "fish out of water" introduces fierce, dissonant guitar-spoken conversations between Jesse Hill and Cole Woods. "Right Through," the second track is a Greg MacPherson-esque pop tune with crooning, reverb soaked vocals a la My Morning Jacket. "Dandelion" is the disc's emotional core. With quivering vocals and a chaotic guitar build-up, the tune stays strong for the nine-minute journey. Conversely, the album's seven and a half minute instrumental closer is dynamically bland and doesn't deliver. Still, with hearty portions of British underground, '90s American indie rock and, at times, the up-close emotiveness of the Red House Painters, this band is bloated with potential." -Bucky Driedger - the Uniter


Right Through EP



Right Through began spring 2007. The result of a friendship between two kids in high school who liked each others songs, the band quickly fleshed out to include the brothers Gardiner. With many an idea in tow, Right Through have spent the last year and a half submerging themselves in the basement of the Gardiner's Charleswood home as much as their busy adolescent lives allow, emerging every few months to play a show or release a handmade record.

The songs Right Through play walk a line between careful consideration of a "less is more" aesthetic and a youthful desire to play as loud and hard as possible. Ultimately, this balance is successful: minutes of dynamic restrain help realize the emotional impact experienced when the music finally releases to a wash of distorted fervour.

Right Through do not hide their influences. The song writing gives a nod to 90's american rock; Silkworm, Fugazi, Red House Painters and Slint are all bands oft' mentioned. But while the avid music listener would quickly note these comparisons they would just as quickly be impressed by the originality and technical prowess displayed by four guys who are all still in their teens. This is music that honours its points of reference while remaining committed to creating something new, something worth being heard.
