Disappearing Things - Single
In this scribe's view, Crash Vegas were one of the best Canadian bands of the late '80s/early '90s, thanks in no small measure to the compelling vocals and songs of Michelle McAdorey (her talented bandmates included Jocelyn Lanois and Colin Cripps). She released a couple of undervalued solo albums in the early '00s, and news of a return to the fray now is very welcome. Aptly-entitled new album Into Her Future comes out on Oct. 30, preceded by new single "Disappearing Things". This is a real winner, and the powerful vibe and strong message of the track remind us a little of Patti Smith. McAdorey notes that "the song was, in part, inspired by an interview I heard with a First Nations chief speaking about what was happening in [environmental disaster area] Fort Chipewyan”. Both the single and album were recorded with long-time collaborator and friend Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo), at his Lost Cause studio. A buzz is growing around McAdorey's return and we expect live dates around the album's release.
