Greatest Hits: The Weakerthans - Reconstruction Site (2003)

Updated: 6 days ago


In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, Jake and Blake take you on a walk through the first snowfall of winter to the soundtrack of The Weakerthans. With sprinkles of Canadiana, a triumvirate of songs in iambic pentameter, and a track from the perspective of a cat, John K. Samson is at his absolute best on Reconstruction Site, the band’s 2003 album that directly inspired the next wave of emo-pop and many in the emo revival. Find out more about Samson’s love-hate relationship with Winnipeg, his quest to reclaim Neil Young’s honour, and where Jake ranks Samson among the greatest living song writers on this week’s podcast.
