Cowboy Junkies

Such Ferocious Beauty

    Such Ferocious Beauty is vintage Cowboy Junkies and another dimension from the lo-fi Canadian band comprised of, well, family. A tangle of sonic textures, Beauty is a rumination on aging, losing parents, facing mortality and creating space for one’s life in the midst of the ruin that comes from merely living. “Mike has never shied away from the darker, harder and sometimes uglier realities of our human condition,” Margo Timmins explains of the band’s singular focus, “nor has he shied from its beauty. Thankfully, with one comes the other.”

    Cowboy Junkies are an alternative country and folk rock band formed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1985 by Alan Anton (bassist), Michael Timmins (songwriter, guitarist), Peter Timmins (drummer) and Margo Timmins (vocalist). The band gained wide recognition with their second studio album, The Trinity Session (1988), recorded in 1987 at Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity. Their sound, again using the ambisonic microphone, and their mix of blues, country, folk, rock and jazz earned them both critical attention and a strong fan base.

    The Best Of The Cowboy Junkies

      Despite their tempos being slow and lethargic, their guitars languid, and Margo Timmins' vocals hauntingly detached, the Cowboy Junkies have become one of the most inventive of the new americana bands recording today. This collection features classics from "The Trinity Sessions" (recorded in an abandoned church for $250) the band's reworkings of "Blue Moon," and "Sweet Jane" earning them a diverse and dedicated cult following. This disc focuses on their early recordings released by RCA.
