Word of the talents of folk-rockers Freeman Dre and Kitchen Party has spread fast on the Toronto scene, helped by superb 2012 album Old Town. This new two-track release (“Wickedness” and “Apophenia”) verifies they are ready for prime-time. Dre has an appealing vocal style and is a literate lyricist, while Kitchen Party includes such notables as Terry Wilkins (Rough Trade) and Derek Downham (The Beauties). A new video for “Wickedness” has quickly scored 15,000 views., and last week’s release party at The Dakota was a hit. A striking talent to keep an eye on.
