Skye Wallace may or may not have been manufactured in the darkest Ottawa basement of Heritage Canada to be the next generation CanCon folk hero terminator. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, hello non-Canadian! But she rebelled against her programming and instead of depending on the characters that populate the mythical Canada of her past songs, she looked inward to a self defined mission to “make folk punk” again. The result is the toe tapping self-rejective anthem “Not Ready for This To Start”, the first single in the File Under: Music “One Song at a Time” video singles series.
Check out the video below by Exquisite Corps., featuring Skye as psychedelic roller skating Death! And if you’re the sonic tinkering type you can get the stems here via Skio.
