This is The Gertrudes' first EP, from 2009 (well, there was actually another one before that, but it's unavailable now). We're still really happy with it and still play some of these songs, in fact we're reworking one of them for our new album coming in 2013. Album graphics are included with download.

The Gertrudes Kingston, Ontario

The Gertrudes sound like an ol’ time saloon party in deep space … experimental noise beds with down home folk passengers, frolicking through original material, played by a veritable orchestra of instruments.
