Little Village New Canadian Music
Not to be confused with the cool John Hiatt and Nick Lowe-led band, this Little Village is the debut album from folk/roots combo Banded Stilts, following on from their well-received 2011 EP, By The Back Stair. The album was recorded by Don McKay at Spaces Between in Halifax and its material (penned by Steve Haley) ranges from upbeat pop to sparse piano ballads. Trombone spices up the sound on three cuts. The band are currently gigging their way around the Maritimes.
