The playful members of The Buzz Trouts deserve kudos not just for their abilities as songwriters and musicians, but also for song arranging -- not a finer self-made CD you'll find.
The Regina jazz-ska-blues-pop outfit likes to boogie as much as it likes to rock, which means The Trouts are all about diversity and depth. Put all that alongside a mandate that's self-effacing and you have one of Regina's best working bands -- whether they make it beyond performing Saskatchewan pubs on the weekends is a moot point; embrace them while you can.
My favourite song is the opening number "People." And there's a part of "Melt Away" that sounds like an old Rush song. That's a good thing.
My only complaint? Only nine songs.

The Buzz Trouts, based in Regina and Zehner, Saskatchewan, consists of the writing/guitar/vocal duo of Dave Fries and Brad Uhrich. Joined by seminal Regina drummer Robb Homenuk and bassist Patrick Andrews, the Buzz Trouts spent over a year recording their new indie released album "Pickles from India?". Buzz Trout Dave Fries produced the band at his renowned Ze Studio (where legions of top area artists have recorded - Morgan Mayer, David j. Taylor, Geronimo, Johnny Hatch). ‘Pickles From India?’ was released in November and is now available internationally via iTunes, Napster, and CD Baby. With solid guitar playing, dual vocal stylings and tight grooves, the Buzz Trout sound is infectious and the listener is never really sure what genre or time signature they might hear next. On their sophomore album the band has moved toward a harder sound on some songs, along with some serious lyrical topics. With music styles drawn from rock, ska, reggae, funk, blues and even alt country, these Trouts have their own catchy hooks!

The Buzz Trouts debut album "Don’t Pee in the Pool" received regional airplay and received multiple placements on international TV shows such as “MythQuest” and “2030 CE” which emboldened the band to record the new CD.
