The astonishing new album by Montreal’s pachyderm, Two Weeks of Spring (2WOS), is now available to download from here:
The album reaches into the netherworld between Eastern and Western musical traditions; the Hijaz melodies of the Middle-East, the Raga of Indian folk, the Tuareg blues of the Sahara, the spiritual sonics of Krautrock, and fuses it all with the power and the fury of rock.
2WOS is an album that references the present, music for this time, which is politically and emotionally charged with crossing the boundaries that falsely divide cultures. pachyderm move freely between musical styles, bringing them together through chaos and deconstruction.
“Ten beautifully crafted and flowing songs that take you to different parts of the world so realistically I could swear I heard the sizzle of the desert sands under the instruments.” Jessica Abou, IX Daily.
pachyderm will play a launch show in Montreal on June 10, 2015 at Divan Orange. Following the launch the band will perform in Cuba during the Havana Biennale (end of June). A tour of the UK and Europe will begin in Fall 2015 onwards.
