Recording: Beams

Artist: Beams

Song: How Wonderful*

Recorded at Trinity-Bellwoods Park (Pitter Patter Festival Five), September 16, 2012.

Beams - How Wonderful

Full review to follow. It might be mildly unnerving to hear a band singing a murder ballad where the deed is done "in the shadow of my favourite tree" when you are, in fact, sitting under a particularly nice one in Trinity-Bellwoods. And while there's a spooky frisson from Keith Hamilton's singing saw, the band's overall vibe was as sunny as the glorious day. Part of the Pitter Patter Festival, you'll be able to hear (and see) more of this set thanks to the folks at Live in Bellwoods, but here's a teaser for now, complete with a bit of wind noise against my mics toward the end.

* Thanks to ragandbone for passing along the title to this one.
