Apostle of Hustle

The band is more or less the brainchild of Andrew Whiteman, who has been in such groups as Bourbon Tabernacle Choir and Que Vida. He released a solo effort titled Fear of Zen in 1995. He is also the lead guitarist for the indie supergroup Broken Social Scene of Toronto. Whiteman returned to his native Toronto to resume writing and recording with Broken Social Scene after a two-month stay with his godmother’s family in Cuba. He learned to play the tres, a Cuban guitar, during that time. But in the midst of making the Juno Award-winning You Forgot It in People, Whiteman couldn’t escape the Spanish musical flavors of his time spent in El Barrio Santo Suarez. Whiteman returned to Toronto invigorated about a possible music that did not yet exist. Knowing he wanted to create it, Whiteman took up residency at a local dive as Apostle Of Hustle, a quartet that includes Julian Brown, who also tours with Feist, Whiteman’s former girlfriend, BSS bandmate and his travel companion to Cuba. The band played Brazilian and Cuban folk songs, as well as Tom Waits/PJ Harvey/Marc Ribot covers.

Folkloric Feel was released on Arts & Crafts in late summer 2004. The follow-up to Folkloric Feel is National Anthem of Nowhere, released in Canada on February 6, 2007, and the new album Eats Darkness was released on May 19, 2009. In an interview Whiteman said this new album is « about going through hard times and coming out the other end.

    ha i'm just seeing this too. because i'm into a bunch of indie stuff and realize with titles like of montreal's kissie kiss the corpse that a bunch of this stuff isn't serious. my boyfriend on the other hand tries to make connections and things out of everything. omg, why didn't i listen to folkloric feel first? imo that kicks the national anthem of nowhere's butt..i LOVE animal fat, sleepwalking ballad(it's romanitc and dreamy to me) and most of all kings and queens. i can't understand a word they say in that song..but the feel and energy behind it is just awesome.

    Who knows? Cheap Like Sebastien was written spontaneously in their hotel room while on tour. The reference seems just as spontaneous to me.

    @musiclovesme, Fairly sure it's a reference to Sebastien Grainger http://www.last.fm/music/Sebastien+Grainger - They only have two other albums, but I would suggest their first, Folkloric Feel. It's one of those rare albums that I feel is pretty much perfect. :)

    also, super fans of this band help me out. my boyfriend keeps asking me if cheap like sebastien is a reference to someone. he's a bit older so he recognizes the la la la part from another old song. i don't really know of it referring to anything but thought i'd ask.

    howdy howdy. really love this band. i only have national anthem of nowhere. my fav songs from that are cheap like sebastien(this song requires at least a 5 repeat), national anthem of nowhere, the naked and alone, and jimmy scott is the answer. what cd should i try next?
