The Happiness Project was playing at Red Cat Records when I was in there today, and it just blew my mind.  It’s the first solo album from Charles Spearin, the lead guy from Do Make Say Think, who has also done a lot of work with Broken Social Scene.

He interviewed his Toronto neighbours about happiness, then set it to music…

“After each interview I would listen back to the recording for moments that were interesting in both meaning and melody,” wrote Charles Spearin.

It’s better to hear it than to try and explain it.. Listen here: www.myspace.com/charlesspearin

or download “Anna” by Charles Spearin, I think it’s the best track.
