ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"Gregory Pepper is one of Guelph’s most ambitious and quietly
prolific songwriters. Despite trolling around without much press
attention, Pepper put out one of the more inventive, eclectic and
downright difficult pop records in recent memory. \'Gregory
Pepper and his Problems\', released independently by the singer
himself is a sprawling, 17 track opus of ideas spat out in an
idiosyncratic and beguiling manner, creating a record that sounds
more confusing than enjoyable at first. Yet, the sheer vastness of
ideas Pepper toils with, the bits and pieces of sound implanted
into each parting melody and the strength of his core song
structure reward the listener with multiple listens, finally
revealing a brilliant record, one this writer wished he discovered
when it was released, rather than over a year later. This is a long,
perplexing set, not perfect by any means, but exemplifying, in its
core, the beauty of the indie aesthetic. It’s flawed, overly
ambitious, somewhat pervasive and discordant, but free flowing,
soft–spoken and heartfelt. Really, it’s a gem of a record, filled
with hip–hop, indie–pop, twee by the barrelful, oddball klezmer,
afflicting folk, jagged rock and everything that’s good in
between.\"

-from the Echo Weekly cover story \"Gregory Pepper, His Problems and His Ambitions\" by Shain Shapiro, May 2008.
