Introducing: Snoqualmie

Snoqualmie is the project of Victoria, BC native Blake Enemark.  Enemark's musical history includes stints as a guitarist for BC bands Forestry and We Are the City, among others.  Allegedly, this album has its genesis in Enemark's obsession with the former television series, Twin Peaks.  Alert readers may recall that the signature waterfalls used in that series is Snoqualmie Falls, locate east of Seattle.  While not a formal band, the project included several additional players: Danny Costello; Simon Haisell; Josh Daignault; and Colin Nealis.  The resulting self-titled album (available May 1) spreads over the folk rock, indie pop and alternative country landscape, and probably can best be called "Canadiana".  I think it is a good album, and is worth your time listening to it.

You can stream the album here, and buy it at the Bandcamp site.

Here is the trailer for the album:
