Wide Mouth Mason
I Wanna Go With You
We Are Busy Bodies
Wide Mouth Mason have reinvented themselves on their latest album I Wanna Go With You.
No one expected this legendary two-time Juno-nominated rock band to drop a blues album. Now, they have done just that!
These Canadian prairie boys made waves in the late ‘90s when Canadian rock was at its peak. They even toured with AC/DC, ZZ Top, and The Rolling Stones well into the new millennium, and secured their spot as one of Canada’s most popular bands. That makes their switch to a blues-centred album that much more spectacular.
Kicking off with the toe-tapping track “Bodies In Motion,” the album is a brilliant collection of the best Wide Mouth Mason has to offer. For fans of their older stuff, like their well-known “Why,” the song “Anywhere” contains many of the same elements. However, Wide Mouth Mason has always had a bit of a blues flare just under the surface of their music. So it’s really great that they took this full dive into a genre that really suits them on so many levels.
Then they tackle David Bowie’s “Modern Love.” This ear-worm is absolutely addictive. Their blues approach to the song give new life to this classic. It’s not to be missed.
Really the entire album is not to be missed. It’s fun, fresh, and a crowning achievement for this beloved band.
