ROBERTS HALL possess a sonic identity entirely their own. Beautiful, emotional, occasionally humorous and an unfailingly engaging listen. Their debut album,“I’ll Send A Friend”, arrives fully formed on this wonderful CD.
ÉTIENNE McGUIGAN (guitar, lead vocals) and BRENDAN HOLM (drums, synthesizer, guitar, vocals) are locally storied, workaholic musicians in their hometown of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, each involved in numerous other diverse projects. Yet when working together they are onto something very special indeed, delivering a beautifully conceived collection of memorable, oft-anthemic material on I’ll Send A Friend.
Following the tantalizing introduction to ROBERTS HALL’s fascinating world that was 2014’s 5-song Animal Encyclopedia EP, the glorious I’ll Send A Friend further hones and explores their intriguing blend of indie rock and a wide spectrum of roots music. Skewed blues (The Actress), Giant Sand/Sadies-esque alt. country (Holm’s Nothin’ Worse and Castle of Dreams); intense, epic rock (Toxic Love/Song in C), and even foot-stompin’ gospel (The Lord’s Lament) all have a part to play on this audacious, widescreen opus. Kicking off with the rollicking road tale Anacortes, WA., I’ll Send A Friend is a thrilling journey for every second of its 45-minute duration.

Recorded at Dante Decaro’s (Hot Hot Heat/Wolf Parade/Johnny and the Moon) Shawnigan Lake studio and Nanaimo indie scene luminary Chris Thompson’s (Ah, Venice/Top Men) studio, I’ll Send A Friend was produced by McGuigan and Holm with Arlen Thompson (Wolf Parade/Cymatics Research Institute) and mastered by renowned engineer Harris Newman at Montréal’s Grey Market Studio.
