Description

Join John Paul Kleiner for the release of his solo album InterCity at Supermarket (268 Augusta Avenue, Toronto) on Friday, January 25th (doors at 7:30 pm, show at 8:30 pm). Tickets $15.00 in advance.

Recorded over two years with Neil Clark (Lloyd Cole and the Commotions / Mae Moore), InterCity is a gem of melodic, guitar-based melancholy. Musically, the album frequently conjures the aesthetics of many classic “guitar bands” with the Beatles, Pretenders, the Smiths, the Commotions and even U2 serving as reference points for several of the album’s tracks. Lyrically, the album touches on a variety of themes and provides ample evidence of Kleiner’s interest in and connection to Germany.

As for the album's title, Kleiner explains, “InterCity trains connect major towns and cities in Germany with one another. While we were recording this record, I realized that the songs, some of which I’d been carrying around for years, evoked a number of cities and towns where they were written. The InterCity seemed to me a perfect unifying symbol for the album."

The Band
For this special release show, Kleiner will be joined by Neil Clark on guitar, Ambrose Pottie on drums (Crash Vegas) and Alisdair Jones on bass (Ani DiFranco / Andy Stochanski).
