In Session With…Avalanche City

Did you know there are no squirrels in New Zealand?

When I asked Dave Baxter aka Avalanche City what his first impressions of Toronto are he gets all excited about…squirrels! Hah: amazing. Turns out as we talk nature and animals and that rural spirit infuse his work and his life.

In his introduction he says he hopes to come back…he and his lovely wife enjoyed visiting Toronto and playing music. I do hope they come back. Oh…word of caution…there is a sad moment when I bring up Daisy. You’ll see…single tear moment.

Happily his latest album We Are for the Wild Places is a sublime album. Mixed by Death Cab For Cutie guitarist Chris Walla…if you dig Death Cab chances are you’ll find mucho value in Avalanche City’s beautiful work. It’s the same subtly as the best Death Cab.
