My featured artists this week are performing Friday night at a quaint little club/art house in the heart of Gatineau called Le Temporaire (75 St-Redempteur). Come broaden your horizons with me this Friday at 5 pm.
Lisa Conway, aka L CON is a vocalist, arranger and producer. She has a new album called Moon Milk. It is part "astral folklore and earthly hues", an experimental and psychedelic concoction that was engineered by Andrew Collins at their rural studio in Grey County, ON. Moon Milk showcases L CON’s background working with filmmakers, dancers, and performance artist.
Montreal’s The Luyas are back in the area with a new EP, Says You, their first new recording since 2012. The band’s debut album released in 2011 was long listed for a Polaris Music Prize that year. Their retro-futurist songs are drenched in echo, and built from guitars, French horn, keyboards, drums and percussion.
The last time The Luyas played at Le Temporaire in 2013, David Byrne of The Talking Heads attended the event after his performance at Ottawa Jazz Festival. That’s pretty cool in my books.
