CD REVIEW: The Telepathic
Rundown: The Telepathic Butterflies recorded and mixed
their songs from their very own home. With the exception of three tracks,
we are introduced to a five-piece instrumental rock band that has a feel-good
sound and interesting lyrics, which were written by vocalist R. Ricard.
This Canadian band brings a catchy but unique sound to the music scene,
which will hopefully guarantee them a promising future.
Key Tracks: Although each one of the songs on the CD
is enjoyable to listen to in its own way, "A Final Word," "Narcissus"
and "Mr. Laughabee's Circus" are three tracks with remarkably
catchy tunes. Due to Ricard's clever and unique lyrics, the band is able

Sounds Like: When initially introduced to a band, you
may experience that feeling of having to listen to the songs over and
over again before being able to entirely appreciate their music. However,
The Telepathic Butterflies present upbeat tunes and catchy lyrics that
will have you hooked the first time around. Their sound is reminiscent
of Sloan, with a sort of British vibe. It is definitely a CD to listen
to while in the mood to kick back and enjoy the day.
