Apostle of Hustle - Eats Darkness

Apostle of Hustle is kind of a a supergroup made from various Arts & Crafts bands. The trio consists of Andrew Whiteman (lead guitarist of Broken Social Scene), bassist Julian Brown (Feist), and Dean Stone (Sarah Harmer, Amy Millan) on drums. Their latest album Eats Darkness is due out May 19th. All 13 tracks on the release are a challenging, interesting listen as they push the envelope of musical convention in their own unique way. But, in the end, it is rewarding. You feel like you have actually heard something a bit different than the standard indie fare and certainly not mundane. This definitely won't be for everyone and it is certainly less accessible then their previous efforts. But, for those who like it a little strange, this is a must have.
