Wool On Wolves 

Grey Matter (independent)

Edmonton-based Wool On Wolves gets an A+ for perseverance. After experiencing the worst side of any creative industry ---being duped by the big guns---the fellas fought on to successfully release their first full-length Grey Matter. As far as folk-rock goes, the band is brilliantly tight and multi-faceted and a close listen reveals truly charming layers of sound. The band’s interest in a variety of genres is evident and they do have the chops to pull it off. Overall, unfortunately, as an album, Grey Matter lacks energy and pep. Perhaps it was nervousness, perhaps the album was over-mastered. It’s hard to tell. Wool On Wolves would probably be a phenomenal live show, though, so catch them if you can.
