Currently overseas, Winnipeg, Manitoba’s Greg Rekus is touring Europe, hyping up the rowdy, beer-swelling masses with cuts from both his back-catalog, and his most recent, third full-length studio recording, Sibling Cities. Released on January 5th, 2017, the new thirteen-song, John Paul Peters-produced and recorded album is yet another excellent example of the artist’s acoustic folk/punk mash-up. Need a taste of this pub-ready audio? Then grab a free download of the single “…But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others” here, and be sure to check out the entire punk-infused folk fest at Bandcamp.

Commenting on the aforementioned track, Rekus was kind enough to share some thoughts:

“The song is about the feeling of inequality in the world and our thoughts about each other’s entitlements. I don’t think in history have we ever had such a gap between the rich and the poor. The title comes from the ‘Animal Farm’ by George Orwell. The original quote is: ‘All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.’ The feeling of entitlement is a dangerous concept. There is a very thin line i feel sometimes between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ it only takes a day for a luxury to become a necessity. I believe to better yourself is a wonderful way to live your life and move forward but not if it’s at the costs of other people’sufferings and exploitation.”
