“I Want It” by The All Canadian Soundclash // Brooding, yet uplifting are two ways to describe Ottawa singer-songwriter Andrew Michelin and his indie folk alt-rock project The All Canadian Soundclash. He recorded the track with award-winning producer and musician Dale Murray (Joel Plaskett, Buck 65, Matt Mays) and drummer Jordi Comstock, both based in Nova Scotia. “With me being in Ottawa, and the others out east, we were forced to find a different way to record,” says Michelin. Murray and Comstock recorded at Murray’s Farmhouse Studio, while Michelin contributed his portions from his home studio. [Soundcloud]
