As of Yesterday
A killer slice of thoughtful and soulful country rock styled brilliance, beautifully arranged songs of superior craft that stand out and stand up in a big way. Calling to mind some of the work of heralded favourites Uncle Tupelo and off-shoots as well as lesser-known treasures such as The Schramms, Scud Mountain Boys, and Lucero but by no means derivative or even directly influenced by any of those. If you're on board with that kind of musical depth, then this is a disc that'll pull you in and keep you enthralled with it's unmistakable charm and distinct passion. Trevor is clearly already deserving of international attention. Aardvark,Birdman Sound The Ottawa Sun June 21, 2006 Trevor Alguire As of Yesterday * * * * (out of 5) As of Yesterday is the second album from Ottawa musician Trevor Alguire.A surehanded album of country rock in the vein of Steve Earle and Son Volt released under the Mercury Pickup name. As of Yesterday continues in the roots rock vein of Narrowed Down, with a slightly laidback melancholy feel. Alguire has found just the right voice for his tales of world weary travellers and lonely wanderers. Andrew Carver Birdman Sound.
