Paper Crane

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Walri?
It's the question everyone's asking,
and the answer is “yes!”

Walri is a downright exciting rock band with a
gloriously diverse sound leading the music
scene in Rochester, New York, with their
unforgetable melodies, tight harmonies, and
infectious beats. Walri brings extraordinary
tunes and unshakable live playing everywhere
they go. Labeling their unique sound can be
difficult since they incorporate 60's Retro Pop,
70's Funk, Jazz and Brazilian Bossa Nova, and
modern Rock and Roll. But don't worry, just call
it "Love-Rock" like their fans already do.

THIS IS THE OFFICIAL REMIXED REMASTERED RERELEASE of PAPER CRANE
and THE OFFICIAL ONLINE RELEASE OF PAPER CRANE

Here's a review we had from our first run, before the remix/remaster/rerelease:

Rochester City Newspaper
Walri "Paper Crane"
By Saby Reyes-Kulkarni On Mar. 26th, 2008

"Although Walri has been around since late
2006, this stunning debut album makes the
Rochester quartet's entrance onto the local
scene official in a big way. Quirky like its
musical cousin Peachy Nietzsches, Walri (the
plural of "walrus") restrains its sense of humor
enough to let its bountiful musical fluency take
center stage. Psychedelic rock, overt nods to
the Beatles and Beach Boys, shades of bossa
nova, and dense, jazzy chord changes all get
executed with smooth precision for a distinct
sound the band calls "love rock." But you
might be too busy with all the hooks to notice.
After the band's strong showing at the release
show for this album, you can't help but wish
for a beefier mix. But the songs themselves,
not to mention thoroughly satisfying
production touches like the ghost keyboard
ending of "Lady D," certainly shine and leave
no question about Walri's skills."

WHY YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION
"Easily the coolest thing
we've played all night" ~
Frank De Blase (98.8 FM
Rochester's The Buzz)
"Rosenstein's distinctive
personality might drive
Walri, but it's the musicianship
he and his
bandmates(all stellar at
what they do) possess and
their lighthearted interaction
that makes the band
one of Rochester's best."
~Troy Smith (Rochester Metromix)
"The only reason my mom
let me come out tonight is
because she knows how
much I love Walri!" ~ Julia
Nunes (Julia Nunes)
Walri has shared the stage with
such nationally touring acts as
Dr. Dog, Ben Lee, Reel Big Fish,
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub
Squad, Elf Power, and other
members of the Elephant Six
Collective. The band
performs regularly in their
hometown of Rochester, and
throughout the north east. Walri
is preparing the remastered, remixed
official re-release of the
first full length album,
"Paper Crane."
Keep your eyes peeled, your
ears hungry, and your knees
limber for the next time you see
Walri.

"These guys are head-scratchingly
good" ~ Scott McMicken

THE ZEITGEISTY REPORT

"I think Scott McMicken (Guitarist and co-frontman of the tremendous Dr. Dog) said it best when describing Walri… “These guys are head scratchingly good”. This is true on two levels: a) they really are; and b) it’s a total head scratcher as to why they are not a huge band, at least in the “indie” scene anyway....Walri is a band straight after my own heart, combining a 60s pop sensibility and knack for ornate production with a distinctively modern edge that could easily place them among the top bands in their genre...I just can’t for the life of me understand why no one has discovered them and championed their cause. These guys have got to get signed and on the national scene… like YESTERDAY. I can talk about them all day, but when it comes down to it, LISTENING is believing..."
