SANDRO PERRI (sandroperri.com)
One of Toronto’s most interesting & inspiring composers, Sandro Perri returns to Feast In The East with bassist Josh Cole, percussionist Blake Howard & synth player Ryan Driver. His pop songs are layered deep in textures and full of meanderings. Synth hums and bubbles float above carefully placed percussion like some slowed down jungle dance party. Guitar notes dissipate into hums & lost flourishes. Sandro’s voice moves over the instrumentation, almost caressing it like a sheet. His music creates it’s own environment, it’s own weather conditions, with seamless movement, sounds & textures flow into each. Don’t miss this prodigy of the avant smooth.
Robin Dann & her who’s who crew of Toronto avant song slingers (Thom Gill, Dan Fortin, Felicity Williams, and Phil Melanson) pump out soulful compositions that are full of blooming vocal flourishes, airy guitar whispers and bubbling beats. Sounding like the release of some lost spirits rejoicing as they flee into the eather, Bernice creates a uniqwue atomosphere. Vocals swell and fall, as spectral guitar notes drip from the sky. Electronic drum textures pop & gurgle like a stewing bog, fermenting. Get into this beautiful ghost music.
NEW CHANCE (newchance.bandcamp.com)
Vic Cheong’s posi beat project sees slowly flowering electronic textures mingle with bopping drum machine rhythms, and effected vocals. Lines blur between glitched vocal effects and shaking electronic beats. Whispers become spiritual drones. New age textures amped up with fresh rhythms. Vic takes you on the celestial journey merging the dance and drone zones.
