Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, City Editor, News Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, CD RELEASE--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) - Canadian musician David McFarlane releases his debut CD, The Wreck That You Are, on June 25, 2010 at the venerable Dakota Tavern in Toronto. The band's enigmatic acid-folk format is the latest project of insatiable, insomniac songwriter David McFarlane.

McFarlane's poignant lyrics ring with raw emotion against an inventive meld of conventional and abstract tracks.

"I've always been inspired by records (and the people who make them) that unfold gradually, says McFarlane. Don't get me wrong, I love the quick fix of a great pop song too, but I always come back to records that have mystery, depth, soul and originality - those that reveal more and more with every listen. I don't like easy records. I don't think I made an easy record."

McFarlane is accompanied by good friends, family and long-time collaborators: Andrew Osborne, Brian McFarlane, Cathy Marchese, Jordan B. Wright, Rob Laidlaw, and Sabrina Korva.

CD release party takes place the Dakota on June 25th at 7pm.

About the album

The Wreck That You Are was recorded and produced in Toronto at McFarlane's
home studio then later mixed at Montreal's Breakglass Studios by producer Jace
Lacek. "Wreck" was mixed on the same vintage 1968 Neve germanium console
used to record portions of Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti. Good karma? No
doubt. /For further information: http://www.mcfarlanemusic.com/ IN: ENTERTAINMENT
