Kanada-Import: The Sheepdogs’ new album Changing Colours, out now on Dine Alone Records (U.S.) and Warner Music (Canada), makes the 1970s rock scene sound like it’s alive and well–basically, it’s the Sheepdogs doing what they do best.

More than two years have passed since the Sheepdogs released their last album Future Nostalgia. It takes fewer than 10 seconds of listening to Changing Colours to identify the Sheepdogs’ choice. Echoes of Crosby, Stills and Nash’s harmonizing can be heard on “Run Baby Run,” while songs like album opener “Nobody” and “Saturday Night” sound like an amalgamation of ‘70s bands as varied as Steve Miller Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Different from past Sheepdogs albums is the extent to which the band embraces a country twang, evident in “Let it Roll” and “Cherries Jubilee.” Also pleasing is the inclusion of five jam tracks without vocals (“Kiss the Brass Ring,” “Cherries Jubilee,” “The Bailieboro Turnaround,” “Hms Buffalo” and “Esprit Des Corps”), which boosts the album by giving it a sense of movement and spontaneity. The 1970s was a relatively comfortable time for rock artists: the genre was established, record companies supported the cause and the public was behind the music. There’s little question as to why a rock band today would emulate that era, and the Sheepdogs are well poised as capable, dedicated musicians to do so.

On Changing Colours, the band explores many of the pockets of music known generally today as ‘“70s rock,” and though their original takes on the storied era never quite erase the derivative echoes of their predecessors, the Sheepdogs nevertheless deliver a solid album that classic rock loyalists will readily embrace.
