Fond of Tigers
The Georgia Straight named Fond of Tigers’ JUNO Award-winning third album one of the “50 albums that shaped Vancouver”, while DownBeat put the seven-piece’s latest album on its Best of 2017, giving it 5-star “masterpiece” status while praising its “brilliant and beautifully intense” symbiosis of art-rock, interstellar sonics, complex rhythms, and idiosyncratic melody. With two drum kits, guitar, bass, keys, and wildly effected violin and trumpet, Fond of Tigers is a sonic phenomenon; “descriptions of their sound are next to impossible and essentially pointless” (Herohill).
“Modern jazz for metalheads” – The Georgia Straight
JUNO-nominated Peregrine Falls is the uncannily symbiotic duo of genre-busting Vancouver guitarist Gord Grdina and ferocious drummer Kenton Loewen. Call it post-jazz. Or free-punk. Or just let it take you on a fretboard-igniting, drum demolishing thrill ride through serpentine back roads, blindfolded.
“SICK BOSS consistently delves deep beyond musical boundaries, blurring borders between genres, and scenes.”– Discorder Magazine
Drawing from creative improvisation, folk, and Hendrix, guitarist Cole Schmidt’s sweeping, cerebral originals are taken to unexpected places by Vancouver sonic all-stars Peggy Lee cello, JP Carter trumpet/FX, James Meger bass/FX, Dan Gaucher drums/FX, and Jeremy Page sax.
Ken Vandermark & Jesse Zubot
Virtuoso Chicago multi-reedist Ken Vandermark is an ardent sound explorer, who has worked with creative music giants Peter Brötzmann, Kris Davis, and Hamid Drake. BC violinist and Drip Audio label head Jesse Zubot has been honing his improvisational voice for over two decades. His singular creativity can be heard with Tanya Tagaq, Fond of Tigers, and on cutting-edge film scores.
