* title - Apostle of Hustle

* Categories -




* description - Apostle of Hustle first took shape after a two-month sojourn in El Barrio Santo Suarez, in Havana, in 2001. This experience was mind blowing for Apostle of Hustle's lead (Andrew Whiteman - also lead guitarist for Broken Social Scene) returned to Toronto from an extended stay in Havana, 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. The band played Brazilian and Cuban folk songs, as well as Tom Waits / PJ Harvey / Marc Ribot covers. Whiteman played guitar and tres; plus he recruited Dean Stone (Feist, Sarah Harmer) on drums. The duo now three records strong and countless tours under their belts arrive with their latest, a concept album titled, Eats Darkness. The very title "apostle of hustle eats darkness" mocks the omnipresent and utterly common advertising slogan. Do this! Be more desirable! Make others like you!? If they were selling anything, it'd be "eat darkness you'll feel better". Not exactly, but there is an alchemical process at work here. Transformation does have its costs. You can't expect to feel better about life right away, can you? & Why eating darkness? How is that supposed to help? Like the old idea of the shaman; the one who cures by ingesting the poison itself; he is the one who has been the sickest and thus has the skills to know how to travel back and forth between states. He suggests, eating darkness will be the cure of your darkness. Its very traditional William Blake: "The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom?. Swallowing poison usually leads to death, but not if the patient knows the art of transformation, not if they can "stomach" the bullshit & hell that is surrounding and tormenting them. This then is the process? one eats darkness & somehow is able to excrete out pure light!
