Dilly Dally drew me in with their guitarwork and a raw quality to both lyrics and vocals that don't pull any punches. This might seem odd, but when I hear the guitars, I hear a bit of Paul Weller circa 1982-84. Definitely check out the four tracks on CBCr3 or MySpace. This is music stripped of pretense and posturing. Part of what I like the most about the songs are how they tell these stories wrought with emotion integrated with the arrangements.

I don't know the title of this live track from last summer, but it's one of my favourites::

Here's a live version of "Green" shot in Trinity Bellwoods Park::

Also check out The Humble Empire's YouTube channel for the Live in Bellwoods series [also, here's the Live in Bellwoods site].

Finally, here's a live version of "Albatross", showing off the band's stage presence::
