Wooly Mammoth is a two-piece band, a little bunch of talented instrumentalists. The Canadian indie, alternative rock band released North Shore last month and to be honest, I’m loving the album. The album is great – cohesive and whole sound.
The album starts with “Gold” – a mid-paced, catchy track. It features light guitar sounds, the steady drumming, attention-catching bass line with perfect vocals from Jessiah Devine. I love mixture of vocals of Devine and Paul Vroom in the chorus.
“Nevada” possesses a carefree, relaxing rock sound of consistent guitar riffs. It is perfect for an early morning drive out of the city. “Teddy Ruxpin” is another track with the similar and addictive atmosphere. It has an impressive breakdown of pure rock sounding goodness around 2:45.
“Lonesome George” is slower and I like it. “Coffee” reminds me of having an intimidate conversation between two people. Listening to it as if I am reliving scenarios of people-watching – their mannerisms and just watch them, not in a creepy way of course.
Wooly Mammoth is a remarkable band; their sound is phenomenal and soothing – a little bit of rock with the calming sounds of indie. But most of all, I love the lyrics in North Shore. Each track provides depth and allows the listeners to feel some emotional connection, whether they realize it or not, like good music should.
