Published Oct 25, 2011Here at Exclaim!, we were intrigued to learn about Andy Sheppard's new self-titled album as Find the Others, which sees the Toronto artist introducing film footage into his inventive soundscapes. Now, we can listen to the entire 11-track effort ahead of its release date on November 1.
According to a press release, this music "explores the contrasts between a quiet childhood in tobacco country and a frenetic life in the city," with the tracks "[stretching] the boundaries of songwriting, drawing in contemporary rhythms, live looping, and ambient noise clips to create a mesmerizing new sound."

Also be sure to check out the music videos for album cuts "Sons and Daughters" and "I Like You" to get a sense of the album's visual accompaniment. If you create and submit your own video for the song "And the Bells They Ring," you could win $750. See contest details here.
Sheppard will be taking this audio/visual project on tour in Canada next month. Go here to see the dates.
