Biography

Born Ruffians, Say It (Warp)

The music industry convention of calling a second album a “sophomore record” makes it sound like rock is some kind of college, which is weird. If Born Ruffians’ 2008 debut album Red Yellow and Blue was the result of a talented and precocious gang of freshmen, their 2010 follow-up, Say It, would be the project they left school to finish ...

Product Description

Product Description

A key ingredient in the creation of Born Ruffians new album, Birthmarks, was a remote farmhouse in rural Ontario. The band wanted to return to the days spent writing their debut, Red, Yellow & Blue, wherein they lived together and 'whenever we had an idea we could work it out right there that moment.' Born Ruffians' often hilarious time spent at the farmhouse was documented on video
and shared with fans around the world via YouTube.
While some of Birthmarks was born on the farm, many of the songs were conceived long before. Luke Lalonde would write and demo constantly on his laptop, at home, on tour, in Toronto, Montreal, Midland, Australia, France, Germany, anywhere and everywhere inspiration might strike. Several songs were realized during the recording process in the studio. The twelve-track album was written and demoed over the past three years and was produced by Roger Leavens at Boombox Sound in Toronto.

Review

'Birthmarks never feels contrived and edges the band towards greatness' 8/10 --Clash Magazine

Fun music 7 May 2013

I wasn't familiar with the band until just a few days ago. This album is going to be my cruising-with-the-sunroof-open-music for the next few months. I like bands like Phoenix, Walk the Moon, and the Shins and this album is right in line with my tastes.

Wonderful, energetic, and fun! 6 May 2013

Great album! Whether you're a long time fan, or you're just listening to Born Ruffians for the first time, this one is a keeper. It's a much more mature sound than their first album, but it's not lacking in the excitement or the fun. It's catchy, groovy, and all those good things! I really liked their first album, Red, Yellow, And Blue, but after listening to this album (which I LOVE), I now LOVE their first album. It has a way of sticking with you. It made me really appreciate what they're doing, artistically, and I really respect them as a band. Additionally, my boyfriend (who I showed the 1st album to a while back) thought they were just an alright band till he listened to Birthmarks. Now he considers himself a true fan! Great band.

Great album, worth the buy. Listen, and if you get a chance, catch them live! They put on an amazing show.
Awesome new album 27 July 2013

This album reminds me of the old Born Ruffians more, but still brings a new edge to it that shows they've progressed in their style of music. Much better than their sophomore effort, and arguably better than their original album (which I absolutely love).
These guys are still making great music 13 Jun. 2013

I bought this album and was I not dissapointed. The sound is definitely starting to depart from what we heard in their previous albums, but change is good! I enjoy listening to this from start to finish.
Fun Pop 9 Jun. 2013

I was a huge fan of Born Ruffian's album 'Red Yellow and Blue,' so I was excited when I heard that they had just released a new album. The music on this album is quite different than RYB, lacking that quirky charm the latter album has and having a much more refined sound, but it is still mighty fine music nonetheless.
