    Default Hey guys, my buddy just released his first full length album



    It's not entirely a tour-de-force, but he's a talented guy working with talented people making some very fun music. His band changes up a fair bit, but he's usually got a trumpet/flugelhorn section floating around, a sousaphone for the bass, an accordian and the standard keys, drum and guitar. I highly recommend "There is Not a Snake" as a song, and the other contender on this album is Disneyland, IMO. Raccoons is a favourite of mine for comepletely unrelated reasons (mostly that I've never really gotten into any of the recordings he's done for it).

    It's hard for me to describe his music, because I have very little taste and I'm not widely read (for lack of a better word) with bands to compare him to. He's a bit of a crooner who constructs these fantastic surreal vignettes in his writing, but you can tell he's still just playing around and having fun with what he does, although this is so much more apparent live. He's a terrible ham IRL and it definitelycomes through in his music. I'm not going to name band names and instead let you guys judge him yourselves.

    Here's his soundcloud with the full album on it: http://soundcloud.com/nick-teehan

    and here's the bio from his website:

    2012 is a landmark year for Nick Teehan, marking his second recording and debut full-length album, There is Not a Snake. A natural singer with a clear, lazy baritone - equal parts Tom Waits and Frank Sinatra - Nick Teehan is a unique voice, his songs fresh, energetic and unpredictable; his lyrics imaginative, irreverent and arrestingly insightful.

    Growing up in suburban Oshawa, Nick felt most free after dark, whether he was watching rented Charleton Heston movies, wandering the city’s forest paths, or trekking south to yell and throw rocks at the 4:00 a.m. train. His teenage afternoons were spent pushing carts at the local grocery store and cruising his rusty old bike across town on the sidewalk. His first recording, 2010's Sidewalk Friend, showcases the first stories Nick wrote upon moving to Toronto. His self-title band, a hodge-podge mixture of electric, brass, woodwind and percussion, has since expanded into an outfit equal parts vaudevillian spectacle and tuneful indie-pop.

    Nick's upcoming record, There is Not a Snake is a meditation on the supposed end of our world. It's mornful stories about the man at the bottom of the sea, the false love of the portuguese dress-store mannequin, and the broken church on westmoreland avenue are spelled by more bizarre songs, featuring a shrine built from Tina Turner's post-Thunderdome skull. Built by chimpanzees.
    What does everyone think?
