Since his time in seminal Canadian punk faves Stark Naked and The Fleshtones, Eugene Ripper has transformed himself into a top-notch alt-folk singer/songwriter. His Fast Folk Underground series has had residencies in NYC, Halifax and Vancouver. His rollicking, garage-rock influenced sound is altered significantly on this thoughtful and poetically intense fifth album, one emerging from a period of personal loss. Such notable players/singers as Dean Drouillard (who produced), Bryden Baird and Julie Fader ensure that this Quiet Light burns bright.
