Last month, singer/songwriter Jim Bryson, released The Falcon Lake Incident, a new album of Bryson originals recorded with his friends and frequent tour mates The Weakerthans.

Recorded on Falcon Lake in Manitoba over six days in January 2010, The Falcon Lake Incident brings Bryson, one of Canada’s truly under appreciated and engaging voices, together with Canadian indie rock heroes The Weakerthans. Guest appearances include Jill Barber, Gord Sinclair, Peter von Althen and Dave Draves.

“It was such a great place to be and make music. Jason was cooking, Stephen went on ski excursions and I generally talked to the wildlife. There seemed to be an real calming effect to recording so far away from rest of the world. I think when we left, we all thought ‘how did we just do that'”? [JimBryson.BandCamp.com]

The original “Falcon Lake Incident” from which this album took its name refers to an alleged UFO encounter which occurred near Falcon Lake, Manitoba on May 20, 1967 [Wikipedia.com].
