If you’ve seen Canadian bands live in the last few decades, you’ve probably seen Taylor Knox play, whether you know it or not. His in-person stints with The Golden Dogs, Sloan, Owen Pallett, Hayden and countless others have informed the sound of this second full-length solo piece, and Knox ultimately settles on a strain of guitar-driven pop that’s reminiscent of Stars’ Set Yourself On Fire era. This is a celebration of nighttime from Knox’s life-long bus tour, his lyrics flush with memorable moments, friends and lovers, and late-night introspection. The pace of Here Tonight rarely wavers, and the result is a little one-note, so partake in small doses.
