The fog thickens, the winds grow chill, the clouds gather in grey unison and Calgary songwriter Chris Tenz embarks on his third full-length.  They are one in the same as the cover art for Nails Through Bird Feet suggests, both evoking feelings of pensive melancholy as well as peaceful calm.  Blending ambient textures with soft-spoken lyrical accompaniment, Chris Tenz makes a brand of bedroom folk music as human as a Bonnie Prince ballad and as soaring as a Sigur Ros album.

Nails also marks Chris’ inauguration into the world of vinyl, including a 7″ with the vinyl package as well as a cassette with over 60 minutes of unheard tracks and even a cocktail recipe to enjoy with the album.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is what I want to find under the Christmas tree this year.  Well done, Tenz, and I hope to hear a lot more of you in the future.

The Details

This beautifully packaged set comes with 180g transparent vinyl pressing of "NTBF", along with a bonus clear blue 7" with album bonus tracks. Also included is a clear blue, hand packaged and recorded cassette with nearly 60 minutes of unheard material, prepared to accompany the album. The 7" and cassette will not be released digitally, so grab yourself a copy! Just for fun, we're also including a cocktail recipe to enjoy with the record, created by Nick Stadnyk. We went all out with this one, folks!
