Folk-indie group First Nations hail from British Columbia, Canada and produce some compelling work. Black Beach was published on that ever brilliant site, bandcamp, in March 2011, and is their 4th full publication, following an equally good Wand from late 2010.
My favourite song from this album is ‘Mt. St. Helens’, the lead song on this post, I just like the guitar arrangement. Another gem is the opener, ‘Your Waves, They Grow’, with its pumping drum line throughout the entire track leading to a densely layered end.
This album, along with ‘Wand’, is being offered for ‘Name your price’ on bandcamp, which although allows you to choose free, I recommend a donation of some kind.
