From CL's 2018 New Music Preview:
Bo White is spare with his words, and maybe that's because his music — wildly eclectic, ranging from solo acoustic fare to the noisy, atonal experimental rock he's done in bands from Calabi Yau to his most recent PatoisCounselors — does the talking for him. But White's fellow local musicians don't hesitate to champion one of Charlotte's most talented, adventurous and inventive players. One of them, Brett Green of Mineral Girls, can't wait to hear the Counselors' upcoming full-length debut.
"I've been waiting for this aptly named record for a while now," Green says of Proper Release. "If there is one Charlotte band I always wanted to be in, it's Patois Counselors. The evolution of the lineup and the sound has been incredible to watch."
Indeed it has. From the band's terrific debut 4-song 7-inch EP to its recent Snug Harbor residency, Patois Counselors has become a well-oiled machine, encompassing everything that's great about all of White's projects, from the lurching guitars and odd time signatures of Calabi Yau to the angular agit-pop and punk of his band TKO Faith Healer to the little electronic and jazz flourishes he's put to numerous other projects. Patois Counselors tied it all together on the EP, and we're champing at the bit in anticipation of the band's, well, proper release.
