New Canadiana :: First Nations – Wand

Stewing in the northern isolation of Grand Prairie, First Nations’ popular brew sharply morphed into an ambitious platter of cross-provincial musicalia after lead singer Derek Janzen darted westward. Derek’s dark velvet vocals are layered over ambitious mountains of rural mystics and sprawling piano pop while a dense harmonium and brooding kick hold Wand‘s ritual to pace. The album is a highly imaginative journey through Alberta’s north, British Columbia’s vacant island, and Canada’s penchant for immortalizing creative brilliance on crisp discs of plastic-wrapped digital mirrors. This really should have come out of Calgary.
