Canada's Sackville burst on the scene to rave reviews for their first CDEP, Low Ebb and their first (and only) full-length, These Last Songs. The group has the intensity of
Slint crossed with the "slacker country ethic" of Palace. There is also a strong kin to such moody ramblers as Rex, Red Red Meat, and Scud Mountain Boys. On the LP, Sackville maintains the "urban country" feel, but with the addition of a second guitarist, they occasionally create a slight math rock feel. Still, the guitar riffs are still submerged in a thick melancholy which makes Sackville one of Canada's most enjoyable bands.
