NEW EVENT / NUIT BLANCHE 2016 – PROPULSION

NUITBLANCHE-poster2

(Poster artwork by CLUCA)

This year for Montreal’s Nuit Blanche (27 February), Brothers and Sisters Records is bringing musical Propulsion to the indoor ice skating rink Atrium Le 1000 (located inside Bonaventure Metro), with an evening of live performances and DJ’s from 5PM to Midnight.

pachyderm will be performing two sets over the course of the evening. The band are notorious for playing in atypical spaces such as underneath the Van Horne bypass, on top of a tug boat, and for Nuit Blanche in 2015, an indoor, public swimming pool. pachyderm will be playing songs from their recent album Two Weeks of Spring, which reaches into the netherworld between Eastern and Western musical traditions and fuses it all with the power and the fury of rock.

« pachyderm’s mastery is such that you get the sense that they are going to create magic every time they pick up their instruments. » RIDE THE TEMPO
« A band with the energy of ten creative minds (however they are only two) blending their musical psyche into one mystical being. » IX DAILY

Electronic-duo V O Y E U R will also be performing a set of beat driven, night-time soundtrack music, to send skaters spinning around the arena towards the midnight hour.

Finally, DJ’s Sons of Suns will be mixing up some soul, disco, rock’n’roll and psych music between the live sets to keep the triple lutzing going on in the rink.

The Atrium Le 1000 ice rink will be illuminated in a red ambiance for this special evening.

This event is a co-production between Brothers and Sisters Records and Atrium Le 1000.

NEW ALBUM RELEASE: LA TI DA

Brothers and Sisters Records presents: La Ti Da 

Do you remember Gooseball Brown and his weird and sometimes wonderful spillage known as ‘Coyote, Crow, Buffalo, Beaver’.  No – well fuck you and wake up ya bastards – there was some real effort poured into the creation as well as the ensuing review and all you do is lay back, get fat on your own ego bar and moan about how little gets done – blah.  Here we see the dude from Montreal, Quebec munch his way through another 10 tracks this time under a new nom de plume ….. with few boundaries and keeping one alert, unsure and a trifle scared right up until the final note – oooh! 

http://www.fungalpunknature.co.uk/FUNGALPUNK/CD%20reviews%202/Page%2010.html

Gooseball Brown has opened the lid on his imaginarium of previous selves and released them out into the universe as intoxicating electric vibrations on the aural manifestation La Ti Da.

The album was produced by Pete “the gentleman” Gendron at Silver Street Studios and features longtime Gooseball collaborators BLZ  (Paradigm Shit, Popskull) and Santosh LaLonde (Bad Uncle, The Unsettlers). The album also features appearances from Brothers and Sisters records’ Byron (Room Control, vague mémoire, voyeur) and Tom Jarvis (pachyderm/HEY MAJESTY).

The album cover uses an original art piece by KOREGORE

The album is available for free download from:

NEW ALBUM RELEASE: V O Y E U R – J U N G L E

V O Y E U R is a collaboration between Tom Jarvis (pachyderm / Hey Majesty) and Byron (vague mémoire / Dust Bowl Era / Room Control.)

J U N G L E is one continuous 38 minute piece, mixing samples and electronic instrumentation, that walks the line between improvisation and song.

J U N G L E is divided into six sections:

1. I N V A S I O N (0:00 – 8:03)
2. D E S T R U C T I O N (8:04 – 15:26)
3. V I L L A G E (15:27 – 21:39)
4. T R I B A L (21:40 – 24:13)
5. S A C R I F I C E (24:14 – 34:57)
6. O C E A N (34:58 – 37:34)

Invasion: Orders written on the back of a napkin, gladly accepted by valiant Knights with shaking, willing and grateful hands. The crest is ironed. The flag is unrolled. Ready to seek justice, the Knights blindfold themselves and prepare for battle.

Destruction: The broken tail of a helicopter rises up out of a thick green swamp, a fossilized weapon that represents failure to the invaders who created this machine to seek and destroy. It is a monument of victory for those who shot it down.

Village: Harmony without the major or the minor. Time is the rising and setting of the sun, full moons, the duration of thunderstorms, the grumbling of empty stomachs. Space is the distance from the river to the fire and back again.

Tribal: Entwined and wrapped around one another like vine leaves. The bubble is pierced from the outside and a suffocating fear pours in and intoxicates the air. The tribe must leave. But they will only do so together.

Sacrifice: The men and women crowd around the boats by the river bank under a dark sky illuminated by flashing streaks of purple and orange. The smell of gasoline burns their eyes. Everything they’ve known fades away from sight as they float downstream.

Ocean: Spilling out from the mouth of the river and into an endless horizon of blue. Safe from harm, the search for dry land begins. Hope is their weapon.

NEW ALBUM RELEASE – PECORA PECORA – Le satellite perdu

“Pecora Pecora’s music is bucolic. There’s something reminding me of the harvest, a still landscape, with wind roaming through prairie fields.”Frederick Galbrun, Foxy Digitalis

A duo of sheep, Pecora Pecora, nostalgically spin synthetic wool; wool infused with the interstellar music “Kosmische”. Since 2009, these sheep (Valérie Bilodeau and Marcello Marandola) have weaved plush constellations, inspired by a dream of discovering a savage planet after taking a long voyage.

The new album was recorded in a spare room normally occupied by the bands budgie, Tuco, and was mastered by Stan Sakell. To make this album, the Pecorists used synthesizers from different eras such as the Roland Juno 106, Roland Sh-2000, the Moog MG1, and a MTI Auto-Orchestra drum machine.

Pecora Pecora are bathed in a sea of 1970’s/early 80’S influences, including: Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Sauveur Mallia, Masters of Time (animated film directed by René Laloux and illustrated by Moebius), and the Vangelis soundtrack for the film Blade Runner.

Stef Heendrickxen made the illustration, The Moutonautes, for the album cover.

** LAUNCH SHOW – Pecora Pecora will play Café Atomic, Montreal on 14 November 2015.

NEW ALBUM RELEASE: THE NAKED LIGHTS

Brothers and Sisters presents The Naked Lights (UK)

The Naked Lights is an English indie group formed in London and led by Benjie Smith.  Having toured the capital extensively and featuring North American residents on extended visa ‘holidays’, Smith moved the band to a coastal town in North Norfolk to work on their self-titled debut album.  A more quiet and serene part of the country, you are unlikely to find, and hence a perfect place to instill guitar and synth mayhem.  The Naked Lights is a ragged adventure; veering from bass-driven gospel, through electronic guitar-house to fuzzy Brit indiepop.

Put the Naked Lights into a box, and it’ll be one filled with the guitar pop sensibilities of Blur, the soul and soundscape of Spiritualized and the beat driven simplicity of New Order, all polished with pop melody.

NEW RELEASE – PACHYDERM / TWO WEEKS OF SPRING

2wos-cover-xtra-contrast

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.
