After nearly two decades together, it's hard to expect anything groundbreaking from the Skydiggers. What the band offers, though, is consistently strong adult contemporary folk music that's remained rich and complex after all these years. Their new disc, City Of Sirens, is no exception.
Opening track Hello Beautiful Life is for the most part a soft, piano-driven number with passionate choruses that shows just how excited the band is to still be making music 17 years after releasing their first disc.
While it's not their best work (Desmond's Hip City still holds that title), tracks like Hasty Mart - a song about working at the Ontario-based convenience store - show the band clearly still have a long career ahead of them.
The Skydiggers play the Mod Club November 1.
