Last night I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite Canadian bands, Said The Whale, perform at the Kaleido Arts Festival in Edmonton.
I had their newest album [Little Mountain] on repeat in Hidalgo, Texas when it came out in March, so seeing them perform live was an amazing opportunity. Not to mention it was the night before I leave Canada for 9 months...perfect timing!
I definitely prefer listening to them live because produced tracks tend to be too "smooth" for my personal preference. Regardless, Little Mountain is a great album to listen to from beginning to end. At the Kaleido Festival the sound was so clear and simple; therefore, the instruments beautifully enhanced each other as well as Tyler Bancroft and Ben Worcester's excellent vocals.
