Library Voices would surely be kicked out of a library if they ever played in one, but this fearless ten member band that includes full-on horns, strings and accordions hales all the way from Regina, Saskatchewan. Nominated for Independent Album of the Year at both the 2009 and 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards, SPIN Magazine described them as “leaning on well-edited art school essentials, from restrained flourishes of unadorned guitars to playful keyboards and cutesy boy-girl vocals.”

“Library Voices—ten members strong—may well appeal to indie music fans with a taste for the lighthearted, and, of course, hip bookworms who can appreciate the group’s eclectic assortment of literary shout-outs.” The New Yorker

“…this EP’s multi-decade mash-up of pop styles feels warm, inviting and unrehearsed. While exuberant bounciness appears to be the ticket for the majority of the EP, the winner may be the most subdued track. The utterly charming “Hunting Ghosts” glides effortlessly on Brian Wilson-esque harmonies, a hushed female vocal and a skittery beat, and is in turns wistful, contemplative and comfortingly cryptic.” Exclaim

“Their sound bridges your parents The Kinks & Roy Orbison albums with your big sisters Fleetwood Mac & Talking Heads cassettes and your weird older cousins Violent Femmes & Magnetic Fields CDs.” Regina Folk Festival

“I found myself listening to (Step Off The Map & Float) over and over.” Brooklyn Vegan

Wool on Wolves is a band; pure and simple.  They’re not here to distract you with flashing lights or smoke machines.  They’re musicians, music fans, roommates, and friends above all else, who hold a genuine belief that music has the ability to move beyond speakers and headphones to truly encapsulate the human experience.
