Toronto’s KIWI JR presents Football Money: A product of two years of labor, and a monument to the work-life balance. The album was recorded by nightfall in dormant studios, with friends and enemies drafted as backup singers and engineers. Football Money untidily fuses the yin of work with the yang of life, chronicling a dual-existence, unkempt instrumentalists moonlighting as undercompensated administrators by the harsh fluorescent light of day, borne back ceaselessly into the Greater Toronto Area by night. Built from the clay of the day-to-day, Kiwi Jr. conjure what we think about when we think about Patricia Highsmith paperbacks, Peel Session Comps, and pitchers of cheap domestic: Football Money is a laser cold hit.
