Album Notes
I Stand in the Weeds is the second full-length release by Montreal alt-country mainstays, The Jimmyriggers, and the long-awaited follow-up to their gritty roots-rock debut, Traveling Salesman...Killer on the Run. Delving deeper into the band's roots influences, I Stand in the Weeds takes the listener on a rich and varied journey through the fields, valleys, and back alleys of a half-century of Americana. Twang and jangle pop-rock numbers rub shoulders with funereal country ballads while reverb-drenched folk-rock noir gives way to a skid-row Salvation Army choir.

I Stand in the Weeds was recorded at Montreal's Fast Forward Studios and in the band's own jam space with producer and multi-instrumentalist Mark Goodwin and stalwart session men Rick Haworth and Eric Lemoyne. With twelve original tracks plus a Flying Burrito Brothers-esque take on the Stones' "Connection" the album presents songs immersed in self-reflection, yet with an optimism and hope faintly present below the surface. Without sacrificing the immediacy of their debut, The Jimmyriggers have crafted an album of raw emotional power that flows seamlessly between rock and country, light and dark, despair and redemption.

Originally a trio, the band is built around the songwriting talents of bass player David Pearce and guitarist Andre Kirchhoff, anchored by the solid back-beat of dummer R.D. Harris. It is their trademark two-part harmonies, however, that truly lend the band its unique sound, with Pearce's clenched fist-in-velvet glove vulnerability dovetailing with Kirchhoff's more honey-dipped tones. With the recent addition of maverick guitar slinger Kevin Moquin on telecaster and lap steel the Jimmyriggers are more than ready to take I Stand in the Weeds out on the road.

The Jimmyriggers rock!
Fans of Blue Rodeo and Tom Petty should definitely check out The Jimmyriggers! I saw them open for CCR in Montreal this summer and they put on a great live show. Their album is filled with strong songwriting, a yearning intensity and haunting guitars. My favorite is "Lay Me Over The Water." A great CD for long road trips!
