The album is a fiercely original and intimate experience that combines jazz, indie pop and folk roots to find a sum that is greater than its parts. Seductive grooves resonate with soul and intermingle as lush horn arrangements form a complex idiosyncratic counterpoint, casting dark shadows and vibrant light sometimes simultaneously.

The Sands is a rare confluence of Western Canada's foremost players from the jazz and indie scene including JP Carter (Inhabitants, Destroyer, Dan Mangan), Paul Rigby (Neko Case, AC Newman), Cole Schmidt (Pugs and Crows), Darren Parris (Frazey Ford) and Barry Mirochnik ( Neko Case, Veda Hille).

Beast to Bone features the dynamic songwriting team Peggy Lee and Julie McGeer and is produced by the ever-innovative, Polaris prize winner Jesse Zubot (Tanya Tagaq) , a known catalyst for powerful musical experimentation across Canada. Collectively, the ensemble comprises over a hundred years of musical experience -- a vintage imbedded in the music.

 "Now my review about this band. What nice melodies and what a beautiful high notes the lead singer sings. I find it quite amazing. Beautiful instrumentation in the songs, in particular the lovely sound of the trumpet. What is also beautiful is the vocal harmonies. Julie has a unique voice that perfectly suit these jazzy tunes. I enjoyed it. I became very happy when I listened. I like the lyrics. This band offers their own style of songs to the world and I really love these kinds of songs. They are original and surprising. It is something you do not hear every day. They have made a lot of songs that have earned attention and growth as a music band. They have my support, I love this band. 

If you want to hear a new music category and diversity, listen to these songs. I really enjoyed reviewing this great band with lead singer, Julie McGeer. This is something your all need to listen and support. Click on all the links below and buy the songs, become a fan like I have at the moment. And remember that the more your share this platform with this band on it, how much more they will be known around the world. That is something they deserve as unsigned musicians, these songs need to be heard. Soon the songs will be on the radio or they will be performing for millions of music lovers."
