We awoke Christmas morning to find a thrilling article from The Globe & Mail’s Brad Wheeler, about his “6 best under-the-radar Canadian musicians of 2018”, which included BloodCrush (Six Shooter Records).

From the piece: “Who is Ensign Broderick, and why has he chosen 2018 to blow our minds? It’s complicated. After the discreet release of four albums of stashed archival music earlier this year, the newly recorded BloodCrush represents the grand emergence of a reclusive romantic, tear-stained baritone and unabashed opus bringer. The grandiose Electric Blue wishes Pink Floyd were here; Love Died/Dies Here is operatic in its realization. The whole thing is undaunted. In this dawning era of hologram heroes, Broderick materializes real, proud and rich in blood.”
