Jon Mckiel’s new record, Tonka War Cloud, channels all the strengths of his debut EP, Confidence Lodge. It is pop rock without the bubbles, a sinking feeling that is quite nice. I personally hear a lot similarities to the dead pan writing of Pedro The Lion. The new full length is a great listen and I am sure it will be as glorious live as it is on record. He opens tomorrow night for Chad Vangaalen and headlines at Wunderbar next Tuesday (Nov.8) with the talented Clinton St. John (of The Cape May) and Smokey. Event details are available here! Be this.
