‘Yeti Sounds’ is the Wind-Up Radio Sessions’ third studio effort, following ‘Bird Eyes’ (2012) and ‘Red Brick House’ (2010). Though the group was on the receiving end of much critical praise for its two previous efforts, brothers Dan and Marc Kiely, with Matt Lazenby, were looking for a change. Working as a 3-piece for almost four years, a more robust sound was in order. Calling Montréal home, the band soon enlisted local barfly and veteran guitarist, Dave Crosbie (also from Kiely brothers’ hometown of Hamilton, ON), who was living in the city. The change and Dave’s influence was immediate and welcomed. The band subsequently toured the country, writing songs at campsites and sleazy motels across Canada.
A few months later, over three of the coldest days in January, ‘Yeti Sounds’ quickly came to life. Working with producer/engineer Jordon Zadorozny in Pembroke, Ontario, the band’s new approach shines through. In just over 20 minutes of music, the band channels the same varied approach as many of their biggest influences, such as; Wilco, Yo la Tengo, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Neil Young, marking a significant step forward on a record that comes across as remarkably cohesive and confident.
