Genre: Fuzzy Blues Rock
Release Date: July 25, 2014

A Day As Wolves is a fuzzy blues rock group hailing from Calgary, Alberta. The group consists of Andrew Eskesen on vocals/lead guitar, Kyle Eskesen on bass, Cam Dawes on rhythm guitar, and Justin Keeler on drums.

A Day As Wolves released their debut LP entitled Move To Be Free on July 25, 2014. The release of Move To Be Free contains nine tracks. It includes the singles “Move to Be Free” and “My Centerfold.”

Opening up the album is a short instrumental introduction. It did not necessarily ‘fit’ with the remainder of the album or set the tone. Moving onto the remaining tracks, I really enjoyed listening to Move to Be Free. I felt it was a solid debut album. My favourite songs on Move to Be Free are: “Move To Be Free,” “Broken Heart City,” and “Ella May.”

To get the best feel of the record, listen to “My Centerfold.” If you enjoy it, I would recommend picking up a copy of Move to Be Free via A Day As Wolves’ Bandcamp page.

Rating: 3.5/5

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
