MUSIC REVIEW BY John Roman

TIM HUS

HUSKIES & HUSQVARNAS

Huskies and Husqvarnas, is a gritty, country music travelogue tracing Hus’s footsteps across Western Canada. He is the prairie recreation of Stompin’ Tom, with a pinch of Dick Damron, Leroy Van Dyck and Hank Snow thrown in for good measure.Corb Lund lends a hand and is heard on Hurtin’ Albertan. And in a neighborly fashion, Hus repays the favour on Lund’s, Hair in my Eyes like a Highland Steer.

Huskies and Husqvaras, sounds great streaming from speakers housed in truck dashboards. It’s a rough edged, patriotic salute to working people, composed of prairie anthems that use the jargon and handles of work life. Look for a hidden track telling of his
misadventures in Mexico and a thief’s error in trying to walk in the boots of Tim Hus.
