For many Saskatonians — lifelong or otherwise — there is a weird compulsion to dislike the Sheepdogs. Their band’s latest release, Changing Colours, proves that many of us need to re-evaluate our opinions on our biggest rock-and-roll export.
After two rather tepid releases, Changing Colours is a breath of fresh air for the Sheepdogs. Stylistically, this album feels complete — from the album art to the harmonies to the honky-tonk-influenced arrangements, Changing Colours seems like it came straight out of the 70s. Check out “Let It Roll,” and you’ll know what I mean.
