Listen to samples from the self-titled debut album from Walter’s Birthday.
Starting in October 2010, the band teamed up with musician and audio wizard st_robert to record the first album from Walter’s Birthday.
All four band members played together "live" in the studio to capture the essence of each tune. Then came the overdubs and pretty soon it was time to mix. With over
55 minutes of music, the album contains a tasty sampling of ten original songs, each one Walter-ized with the listener in mind.
The journey begins with the infectious groove of Concrete Floor and works through a variety of musical moods before closing with a rousing rendition of
Mad Crazy World. At the heart of the album you'll find a little gem called 1972 that pays homage to family, fun and organic farming. The remaining
songs reflect the bands natural desire to explore a variety of musical styles while still maintaining a unified sound.
Bloody Blue And Grey examines the Civil War from a neutral perspective in that it's unclear which side the narator is fighting for. The band really finds their voice
on Lunatic Jam, a track that captures the magical moments that can sometimes be achieved with just the right blend of improvisation and inspiration.
The first album from Walter’s Birthday will leave you wanting more.
