The Winks: "Nolan Ryan"


Tyr and Todd of The Winks

Though typically seen as a large group, Montreal's The Winks are essentially just the duo of Tyr Jami and Todd MacDonald, along with an ever rotating cast cast of additional musicians. On The Wink's eighth release, Birthday Party (out November 3rd on Ache Records), Tyr and Todd have crafted an outstandingly fresh record, building upon what 2004's Slippers & Parasol had already achieved. Mixing equal part's experimentalism and catchy pop hooks, along with the strange combination of mandolin and cello, Birthday Party overflows with gem after gem; including this one, the album's closer.

[MP3]: The Winks :: Nolan Ryan (Highly Recommended!!)
When I first listened to this record a couple weeks ago I made it through once, but could only remember maybe one or two songs that really stuck out, and this song wasn't initially one of them. First impressions aren't everything though, and I'm a firm believer in that, so I gave it another shot this past week and it just clicked. Now I can't turn it off and I also can't help but keep skipping down to this track over and over again. It starts out so small and intimate and eventually becomes this beaming anthem, bigger than they've ever sounded. This is The Winks' "I'll Believe In Anything."

Preorder Birthday Party today!

Though they only moved from Vancouver a few weeks ago, it was still slightly paining to see "Montreal's Winks". True, I know, but damn, they made the Vancouver scene so fine for many years.....best of luck out east!
