CONTEST – Megan Hamilton @ The El Mocambo – July 19, 2007

Toronto singer-songwriter Megan Hamilton released the follow-up to her 2006 debut Feudal Ladies Club this week in the form of the How We Think About Light EP. It picks up where the full-length left off, with its woozily playful countryisms and heads off to a more high, lonesome and autumnal place with some new production tricks (My Morning Jacket called – they want their reverb back) and even some rock attitude in tow. The benefits of playing with a full band, The Volunteer Canola, between the first record and this one are evident and make for a fine follow-up.

Hamilton will be celebrating the release of the record this coming Thursday evening at the El Mocambo with compatriots Emilie Mover and The Northwest Division and is offering a prize pack to one lucky winner consisting of a pair of passes to the show, copies of both CDs, a t-shirt and some pins. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want the Megan Hamilton stuff” in the subject line and your full name in the body before midnight, July 17.

BlogTO and Pulp Magazine talked to Megan about the creation of her new record.
