THE ACORN (http://www.theacorn.ca/)
Ottawa indie folk band The Acorn lands in Toronto in support of their newest album "Vieux Loup" which sees the band meandering into electronic territory, while still remaining the buoyant nostalgic atmosphere of their past outings. Dissonant electronics howl beneath swaying carefree guitar work. Almost ambient movements with the whispering coo of Rolf Klausener morph into chaotic percussive outbursts, only to settle back into the relaxed avant folk soundscapes of yore. Treading territory from electronic dance ballads to minimal folk introspectivity, The Acorn is in a true renaissance that sees them move forward without discarding the past. Don't miss these rare intimate performances!
PHEDRE (late show) (http://phedreamour.com/)
Toronto freak electronic pop super group featuring 1/2 of Hooded Fang. Electronic beats and a mash up of sound effects provide a back drop for mutated vocals dripping with reverb and mixed into the atmosphere. Synth tones & drum machines dance with dog barks & bird chirps. Synth tones like SNES games pulse under smooth pop vocals and borrowed hip hop styles. Phedre navigates through the world of avant dance pop bouncing with nostalgia and lo-fi rock attitudes turned electronic. Drum machines like hand claps. Oscillators like UFOS. Good one buds!
BLUNT CHUNKS (early show) (https://bluntchunks.bandcamp.com/)
Spacey vocals & electronics swirl around you like a settling mist. Caitlin Woelfle-O'Brien's voice soars & sways with multiples of itself, filling empty space like a it's a cavernous church. Forlorn guitar notes shake in the cold night, glistening in the moon light. Music to keep close to your heart.
