Former frontman of beloved Canadian indie rockers the Weakerthans, Samson's trademark tales of blue-collar Canadians and downtrodden, internet-age academics continue to collide on Winter Wheat, an appropriately titled collection of maudlin folk-rock tunes where hope is hibernating just below the soil. Recorded during a Winnipeg winter alongside wife and musical partner Christine Fellows, Samson's gently picked guitar is supported by former Weakerthans rhythm section Jason Tait (drums) and Greg Smith (bass), whose easy camaraderie is felt in the wide open, nuanced arrangements.

This could have been the album of the year had it consisted of 7 songs only. There are so many great moments on this record, but unfortunately due to the bloated nature of the album they fail to make any significant impact. Shit man this could actually have been amazing, it definitely has the potential. It is not the typical guitar/piano indie folk that we see so often. Instead John K. Samson innovates carefully and subtly. Maybe even too carefully. There was so much more there but John . .

Postdoc Blues Lyrics. So your presentation went terrible All wrong dongles, sweat stains and stares Leave the TV on with the sound down low in your underwear. About Postdoc Blues. The song is about a post-doctorate student who is traveling across small-town Ontario giving presentations. Their struggles force them to reaffirm their commitment to ‘the healing of the world’. It is also possible to read this song as a sequel to"When I Write My Master’s Thesis" from the album Provincial. Samson has done this before, with his Virtute the Cat songs.
