WHISKER KISS

wk1Somewhere in Western Canada, between Edmonton and Vancouver, there lives Whisker Kiss. In my travels through the internet, I stumbled upon their 2010 self titled EP. I could find nothing more recent. After listening, I was quite disappointed that I could find nothing else from this band.

The album is filled with wonderfully written songs, fueled by beautiful melodies, and harmonies. There are great changes, and a simplicity that draws you in. There are chimes, or xylophone, and concertina, or it is all synthetic.  Either way it really doesn’t matter. It sounds great. I heard way cool guitar riffs, and amazing vocals.I heard acoustic guitar, and some great arrangements. I particularly liked “House“, with its amazing bridge, and wonderful transitions, that transforms this acoustic folk track into a powerful pop song.

 

 

The album rises above instrumentation, and puts the focus on the songs. With a style that is reminiscent of Paul Simon, the themes focus on man’s relationship with his environment. Talented and topical! This is one of those albums that could be overlooked, and possibly forgotten. A musical masterpiece lost amid the noise. Check it out for yourself. Head to Bandcamp and buy at least 1 for yourself. I suggest you get another 1 for someone you care about. It is that good.
