Coffet, Sam & the Iron Lungs: Real One
Artist: Coffet, Sam & the Iron Lungs
Title: Real One
Label: Dine Alone Records
Product Type: VINYL LP
Real One, the latest full-length record from Toronto outfit Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs, is a work of loving, earnest maximalism. It's proportions are ambitious and grand: blown-out gang vocals, sweeping piano, shimmering saxophone, romantic string arrangements, and thunderous guitars reign across 11 tracks. It's a labor of love, but also of commitment, community, belief and progress. With his band mates Dave Tyson (keys), Liam Doyle (lead guitar), Joel "French" Desbois (rhythm guitar), Richard Stanley (bass) and Connor Glen (drums), Coffey has in effect created a record that could be staged on Broadway. For Fans of Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls, Thin Lizzy, White Reaper, Hockey Dad, Together Pangea and Bleached.
