New Brunswick’s Eldon Thiele, the man otherwise known as Zwerg, has always been a diverse cat. Nowhere is that diversity more obvious than here on Whims and Words. This is a two-part collection; the Whims are eight original Zwerg songs while the Words celebrate (via cover songs) the works of In-Flight Safety, Wintersleep, and Zachary Richard. Zwerg also indulges a whimsical side of his personality as well, including his take on I’s The B’y. Whims and Words is an original album concept from one of New Brunswick’s arguably underappreciated talents.
