Eisenhauer Time of Year

Eisenhauer Time of Year
Vancouver, BC-based indie pop quintet Eisenhauer — fronted by married couple Jeremy Eisenhauer and Sheree Plett — have proven themselves with Time of Year, their sophomore album. Like their label chief and producer Jonathan Anderson, the band explore an often quiet, distinctly Canadian approach to song craft. Complete with lush guitars and a muted rhythm section, the band paint an ideal backdrop for their soothing harmonies. Songs like "What Have I Done?" and the title track are perfected in their wintry lull, while "Feel The Same" and "Sunday" show an up-tempo side. In feebler hands, this music could come across as boring but on Time of Year, Eisenhauer prove they have the restraint to work best in hushed tones. (Anniedale)
