The Spiders We Eat

by The Mailman's Children

This Canadian-American band's 4th venture to the studio brings out more of their cheeky side and hints of social commentary, sonically edging the band closer to Pop Rock and further from their traditional complexities and Alternative history.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE SPIDERS WE EAT (reviews)

"The Spiders We Eat...is an unexpected gem. The vocals, intense and impassioned, and the songwriting, clever and insightful, alone make this EP worth listening to. An EP that flows; the transition from one song to the next is effortless and the vocals are transformative!"
8 out of 10*** - Pooja S., MUSICPERK

"Winnipeg, Manitoba and Helena, Montana The Mailman’s Children return in 2015 with their fourth studio recording, an EP entitled The Spiders We Eat. The lead single from that effort, “Ride In Your Mind”, is a smooth sounding bit of melancholy that sounds like a cross between Roy Orbison and Morrissey. There’s a quiet snappiness to the vocal here, in spite of the dirge-like melody. The juxtaposition of sound and style is a bit intriguing. And while the lyrics have a dragging sensibility to them, the guitar work keeps it all quietly fresh. It is a song of contradictions, lyrical and musical, and the net effect is artful and confounding..."
-Windy Haskell, REVIEWYOU

"The more talent I hear coming out of Canada the more impressed I am, but if only more were popping up on my radar...This is certainly one I’ll be keeping an eye on, as they could go very far with such quality productions, this one being no exception to that rule. There is a cosmic yet earthy sound to them which aren’t often found together with such great results as displayed here.
9 out of 10*** - SP Clark, BANDBLURB

"The Mailman’s Children are often described as Canadian/American because they have a connection to both the U.S.’ Upper Midwest and Central Canada: Frontman Eric Labossiere was born in Canada but now lives in Montana, while the other members of the band (including Joel Perreault on lead guitar and background vocals, Joel Couture on bass) are all based in Winnipeg in the Canadian province of Manitoba. The Mailman’s Children have a history of bringing quality songs to alternative rock and indie rock, and they are in good form on their five-track EP, The Spiders We Eat (it should be noted that Ivan Burke, their touring drummer, plays drums on this EP)…"

STUDIO NOTES: The band entered the studio as a 4-piece for the second straight time. Eric Labossiere (lead singer, rhythm guitarist), Joel Perreault (lead guitarist, backing vocals) and Joel Couture (Bass) returned as the band's usual core, but Ivan Burke replaced Eddie Vesely behind the kit for this go around. While Eddie had recorded the drums and percussion for the last two records, Ivan had toured with the band for the last couple of years, and had already rehearsed some of the band's newer material so the transition seemed pretty seem less. You will notice a different demeanor to the band's sound stemming from this change and Ivan's drumming on "The Spiders We Eat." John Paul Peters of Private Ear Recording co-produced the effort with band member Eric Labossiere. This was the second time TMC had worked with JP Peters.
