Walrus are here to play for the sake of the song. The Halifax based band’s debut LP, Family Hangover, is a fuzzed-out electric blanket of soul with a few unrepentant strands of authentic heaviosity. Extensive studio experimentation can be heard throughout the sonically unique record, from varispeed warble to Spacemen-3 style saucer drone-attacks. Live, their low-key manner belies a depth and dedication to craft that wins over even the most cynical audience. This band could be thrown on a bill betwixt Love and Sabbath and not embarrass the present.
