Montreal QC September 25 to 28

This little-known local combo bridged psychedelia and prog in loose whirls of modern pop, carefully coordinating melody, rhythm and rock textures. The lady in the band sang and played both bass and upright piano, its back exposed to reveal mysterious modifications that I’ll never understand. Whatever it contained, its sound, combined with the gentlemen’s drums, guitars and group handclap interludes, ricocheted in an otherworldly sphere, but with the band’s placid soul and occasional humdrum rut, those ambitious sonic vessels never quite lifted off.
