4.0 out of 5 stars Jolly Good Hums, 6 Oct. 2012

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Hello Hum (Audio CD)
'Hello Hum' is Wintersleep's fifth studio album and the first I have
stumbled across. This Canadian ensemble make a dense but approachable
sound which despite its traditional rock raiments seems not a little rooted
in a Transatlantic folksy sensibility with regard to their management of
both structure and melody. They make a big noise but understand the
importance of a good tune. There are eleven of them to contend with here.

In Paul Murphy they have a strong front man. Although he possesses a voice
which issues more from his nose than his chest it is nonetheless a serviceable
and curiously affecting instrument. The band also has a fine guitarist in
Tim D'eon; a man unafraid to lay it on hard and thick but with the capacity
to reign it in when necessary and deliver some elegant and wistful decorations.

Highlights include opening track 'Hum', sporting powerful martial rhythms
courtesy of drummer Loel Cambell; 'Resuscitate', one of the albums's strongest
up-tempo numbers framing a laconic but lively vocal performance from Mr Murphy;
'Someone, Somewhere', which seems to be channeling The Beach Boys with its
luminous sixties-tinged harmonies and the lovely 'Saving Song', a stripped-
down acoustic arrangement which will bring a lump to your throat if you let it.

A solid effort from a band whose back catalogue I seem destined to explore further.

Recommended.
