Aug 13, 2013 HALIFAX ALBUM RELEASE – TUE SEPT 10
Come celebrate the release of our new album “HEALTH” at the Seahorse Tavern in Halifax (1663 Argyle Street). Local magician/comedian Bill Wood (Picnicface) will open the evening with a very special ‘Everything Is Magic’ magic show! We have limited cabaret seating, so come on down early to grab a table and enjoy our orchestrated pop stylings. We will have a merch table with CDs, pins and t-shirts so remember to bring a mitt full of loot! Also, what’s a record release without a special guest? We’ll have that too. XO

Jul 26, 2013 All Music’s Poplist
“The Heavy Blinkers are back! After a string of amazingly good chamber pop albums that culminated with the breathtaking The Night and I Are Still So Young in 1994, the original group drifted away leaving only chief songwriter Jason Michael MacIsaac to carry on. He gathered up a new batch of trusted musicians, spent countless hours arranging, recording and mixing new songs, and almost a decade later, Health was finished. It’s another wonderfully baroque, melodically rich, musically dense effort…”
Jul 20, 2013 Chronicle Herald pick of the week
CD PICK OF THE WEEK! Kind and delightful words from the wonderful Stephen Cooke, the arts reporter for The Chronicle Herald.: “….he (macisaac) pilots a Noah’s Ark of instruments through Health’s crests and sloughs of childhood dreams and adult disappointments.” Stephen should write the lyrics for the next Blinkers album!
