John K. Samson - City Route 85 7"

John K. Samson is about to release a bunch of 7"s through Anti. The first one comes from Germany's Grand Hotel van Cleef Records to support his upcoming German tour and is entitled "City Route 85", which is"otherwise known as Portage Avenue, one of the main streets in Winnipeg, and the songs are set in three different locations along the avenue". Remember "I hate Winnipeg"? Well, John K. Samson used to be the frontman of The Weakerthans, who I sincerely hated. His solo singer-songwriter stuff sounds pretty good, less nasal, less annoying though, so I'm definitely giving this first 7" a chance and am grabbing the pre-order from GHvC for €6,00.
