Butterbones – Walha

Butterbones - WalhaJordan “Butterbones” Soles, Derek Janzen’s collaborator in Wand, is no stranger to blustery folk-pop experimentation, the type that draws a nervous line from spirit to sound. This small migratory cadre of Peace Country / Victoria artists have sculpted a sound more and more their own with each release. Walha marks a new high for Butterbones. It is the first markedly Victoria based effort, as opposed to the Grande Prairie locus of previous recordings. Those listeners convinced that geography imbues music with a particular flavour will be tempted to identify in Walha the muggy damp of Victoria. Territory aside, the songs here are further developed and more ponderous in their texture than past efforts. The result is a record with a honed complexity that begs multiple listens. Wind it up and watch it go!
