Here’s a second taste of Casper Skulls’ new album “Knows No Kindness”, and it’s another lovely sounding indie song, with some folk/country flourishes.

This is our second favourite song and third single from “Knows No Kindness” is out today! We love playing this one live so we made a performance video for it by Colin Medley with overlaid fall animations to celebrate its life! .If you missed yesterday’s story time post(scroll down), “The Mouth” is where the Sables and Spanish rivers meet. It’s a park that has a lot of legacy in my family and almost became a nuclear waste runoff due to some big dumb company trying to get in there before my relatives and friends of the family protested to stop it from happening.

I wanted to take a second to talk about the cover artwork for “Knows No Kindness” because the next two singles are more or less a diptych together and they both revolve around this photograph taken circa 1960 by Hal Cummings. In Massey, Ontario my grandmother Velma (she’s the one holding the “Massey No Nuke Country” sign), aunts, uncles and townsfolk there held a protest to stop A.E.C.L (a now defunct nuclear waste company) from creating a runoff into the Spanish and Sables Rivers there.

The group protested outside A.E.C.L’s temporary HQ and eventually ran them out of town and the run off never ended up happening. The Sables and Spanish Rivers meet at a point that is located in the heart of Massey also known as The Mouth Park. It’s a local favourite swimming hole that my grandmother used to take my aunts and uncles then years later my mother took me and my sister. We’re releasing the song “The Mouth” accompanied by a performance music video because it is our favourite song to play live with some appropriate fall inspired animations by Gaia Alari .
