Written during a long European tour, the songs on Transistor Sister are infused with the excitement of new experiences and new places. Shotgun Jimmie sounds like he's telling the people he meets about back home, what it looks like, what falling in love there feels like, how we think about things like songs, and peace, and love. It's a good way to see the world; packing light, a bunch of two minute blasts of pop perfection (Late Last Year, Suzy, Transistor Sister), a few all out anthemic rock hits (King of Kreuzberg, Swamp Magic, Peace and Love), and a couple of stellar collaborators: Ryan Peters of Ladyhawk and Lightning Dust on the drums and harmonies, and Jay Baird of the Feist live band and Do Make Say Think on bass and flute. Transistor Sister was the first Shotgun Jimmie album recorded in a fully operational professional studio, at Riverport NS's The Confidence Lodge by Diego Medina, but it maintains the experimentation and spontaneous sense of creation of the best home recordings.
