Product Description

2012 release, the fifth album from the Alt-Country road warriors. The album was produced by Blue Rodeo's Greg Keelor and is the first part of a two part album. Morning Comes is a concept record -- 10 solid tracks that flow like a film or great novel, filled to the brim with emotional highs and lows, plot twists, and universal truths. Morning Comes. It isn't a collection of sad songs but rather, some of the most infectious pop and upbeat rock the band has crafted yet.

Format: Audio CD
Let me start off by saying this-if you're a Blue Rodeo fan you'll like this CD; more on why later. Cuff the Duke (Wayne Petti, Dale Murray, Paul Lowman and Corey Wood) are an Ontario band that have been together for about 10 years, with a few minor changes in the line up over that period.
It's sometimes hard to be exact when describing a band's music, in Cuff the Duke's case terms such as "indie rock", "folk" and "traditional country" have been used, but the best description comes to mind from just listening to the music.
This is the band's fifth full-length album and they were featured on a CBC Radio 2 special in April of this year as they performed with Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), who also produced this album. The first single released was "Count on Me" and as you hear the song you can easily imagine Jim or even Greg Keelor doing this song, but Cuff the Duke still manage to keep their original stamp on the number. You can also check out the video for the song on YouTube, it's great.
Whether intentional or accidental, Jim's influence is even more evident on "Standing on the Edge" and "You Don't Know What it's Like". Both songs are moderately up-tempo and very enjoyable. Looking at a few more tracks, "Time is Right" is a fun, rousing sing-along number; "So Many Times Before" is delicate and almost fragile and "Brightest Part of the Sun" is haunting and slightly sorrowful. "Bound to Your Own Vices" may clock in at 8 minutes in duration but time flies by as the song elicits a foot-stomping response, with a number of tempo changes, starting off as a folk song and then turning into a Neil Young-like rocker. To me this is the best song on the disc. The CD closes off with "Letting Go"; this one definitely sounds like a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young song. It's retro folk and very cool.

Heartfelt alt-country Aug. 26 2012

Thank you, Canada, for Cuff the Duke! I was first alerted to this band when I heard "Count on Me" on the Verge (a Canadian XM station). I am glad I made a note of them--Morning Comes is one of my best music purchases of the year! This is heartfelt, sometimes soulful, alt-country. Although Count on Me may be the most well known of the songs, there are other gems--You Won't Look Back, Bound to Your Own Vices. Not exactly in-your-face music, but rather more subtle. These are well crafted songs. Delighted I took a chance on them.
Limited Edition April 23 2014
By Polo Entendre - Published on

Cuff the Duke hits the airwaves again with a diverse yet familiar faux country song selection. Front man Wayne Petti can be minorly excused for sounding like a nasal amalgamation of Jeff Tweedy and Bob Dylan, which means of course that his voice becomes pretty irritating after 4-5 songs.

Cinematic interludes and dark, foreboding lead guitar runs that punctuate several songs add depth and diversity to otherwise pedestrian lyrics. Instrumentally top flight, CTD is nevertheless monotonous and limited by the vocal range, quirks, and limitations of its lead singer. They'd be well advised to develop a relief pitcher for 2-3 songs per album and tighten up on the songwriting and harmonies. "You Don't Know What it's Like", "Count on Me", and "You Won't Look Back" are fairly memorable, but the rest just kind of lays there waiting for inspiration that doesn't arrive in time.
Great Album Top to Bottom! July 27 2012
By Daniel Diersen - Published on

Cuff the Duke's latest album is their best yet. Way Down Here is excellent, but this may have an edge. Canadian band and friends of Blue Rodeo, Cuff the Duke write infectious pop/rock/country songs that may remind some of classic Byrds. There are hooks galore here with beautiful harmonies, thoughtful lyrics and phenomenal guitar work. Way Down Here stayed in my rotation for months and I expect Morning Comes will as well. These guys deserve a much bigger audience and will have it if people give this album a listen.
