Doug Hoyer - Character Witness (2019)

Apparently former Edmontonian Doug Hoyer has taken up residence in Calgary after a few years stateside, and we at the CCPS couldn't be happier - because it means we get to blather on about how great his new tape it.

This is a polished but understated affair, with Hoyer's vocals and songwriting evoking something between the Magnetic Fields and the Mountain Goats - which is a pretty fine combination in our books. Calling this indie pop feels like it undersells this, especially the very amazing "Partner," a track that feels like it should roll over the ending and credits of every good cop/bad cop buddy movie from hereon.

We highly recommend checking this out; it's available over at Doug Hoyer's bandcamp.
