- Frozen Arms by Chris Tenz
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 07 December 2011
In the morning there's nothing I like more than listening to ultra earnest, heartfelt and bitter-sweet balladry...which is good news cause I'm currently checking the debut by Calgary resident Chris Tenz on Mini 50. 'Frozen Arms' is described by the label as communicating 'themes of loss, regret and impending death...' which pretty much spells out what to expect here...bleakness. The good news is that the execution of these knowingly down-trodden compositions is excellent. Tenz's voice isn't in any way exceptional but his lyricism is refreshingly down to earth and his use of simple warm acoustic guitars against a backdrop of synth ambience and field recordings creates what can only be described as an inviting sound. Microphones/Mt. Eerie springs to mind as a fair comparison and is the only thing jumping into my head right now.
