Published Jun 03, 2014Nearly a year ago, Prairie Cat unveiled his Got Nothin' 7-inch with promises that a full-length would follow. Now, the Vancouver songwriter known as Cary Pratt has officially announced that Who Knows Where to Begin? will be out on August 5.
The eight-song album was produced along with Ryan Dahle (of Limblifter and Mounties) at Greenhouse Studios in Vancouver. It includes all three songs from the aforementioned 7-inch ("Got Nothin,'" "Some Friends May Go" and "Beautiful Baby"), plus the 2011 one-off "Bad Storm."
A few of those prior tunes can be heard below. The latest single is called "No Bedroom," and that upbeat, fun keyboard pop number can be streamed at Prairie Cat's website.
A press release includes a glowing statement from Hot Hot Heat/Mounties man Steve Bays, who described the album like this: "Who Knows Where to Begin? is uninfluenced by the homogeneous trends of the Internet, while still making something that is modern and doesn't feel like a retro-rip costume party."
Pratt noted that Bays was so impressed that the pair mixed a last-minute song to be included as a bonus cut. It will be on CD copies and possibly digital downloads also.
