Blinker the Star Twinkles on 8 of Hearts

Since the mid-90s, Pembroke, Ontario’s Blinker the Star has been concocting some delicious music. The band releases its latest effort, 8 of Hearts. We could classify this as alternative rock; in addition, you will hear a good dose of a retro progressive rock kneaded into the dough. At times, there are surprises, like a banjo on track “Heather” and haunting piano with fluttering analog synth on “Caves and Shadows”. We have embedded the official audio for the album’s first two tracks below. Blinker the Star’s 8 of Hearts is a standout among 2017 releases in the genre, well written songs that are highly enjoyable to listen to. We’re lucky to have this great band aboard Team Canada.  iTunes
