Born Ruffians – Red, Yellow & Blue

It’s about time we talk about the best band north of the border. On “Red, Yellow, & Blue” (3/03/2008) Toronto product, Born Ruffians have released the most original alt-pop album of the year. Their innovative sounds stem from deep bass lines, machine gun drum beats, and all the “oh’s and ah’s” a music lover can stomach. The inherent ability to fuse lo-fi rockabilly with 60’s pop rock seems to be a sound that this trio has nailed down, and thank God for that. Keep an eye out on the tour schedule, rumor is these guys put on a hell of a show.

Highlights Include, “I Need A Life”, “In A Mirror”, “Red, Yellow, & Blue”, and perhaps the greatest song ever written, “Hummingbird”.
