New Canadiana :: Wand – Mt. St. Helens

Wand - Mt. St. Helens

Mt. St. Helens sounds like it was recorded at the height of the summer solstice: hand claps and drum machines abound; fields of back-up singers, ebullient brass instruments and strings weep joyously; major keys melt over nooks and crannies; “Holy Mountain, Holy Ghost” crescendos victoriously; blithesome beach people frolic, experiencing spring and summer concurrently; Derek Janzen drops joyous vignette after joyous vignette; birds sing and fall passionately in love, fornicating wildly in the trees; drunken waltzes overtake those usually too shy to dance. Now that we have passed the tipping point and the sun has been appearing at its lowest altitude above the sweet horizon, put this on if you feel a longing for endless summer and the perfect wave.
