Published Nov 22, 2016JindaLee grew up in rural Alberta, has lived in Germany, Montreal and Japan, and is now settled in Toronto, so it's hardly surprising that her music is as eclectic and far-reaching as her travels. She's almost ready to release her third LP, Wild Spectrum, and Exclaim! is giving you an early listen to it right now.
The album's credits read like a who's who of Canadian indie, featuring contributions from Spencer Cole (Weaves), Thom Gill (DIANA, Bernice, Snowblink), Bram Gielen (DIANA), Ghislain Aucoin (Queer Songbook, Triple Gangers) and Alex Samaras (the Twin Within). The album was recorded live off the floor at Toronto's 6 Nassau and mixed by Matt Smith.
The 10 songs translate a "colourful array of experiences and emotions that can be both challenging and beautiful at the same time" into a sound that jumps between folk to pop to funk to jazz, with JindaLee's own experimental flourishes added to each genre.
As the titled implies, the LP aims at delivering "a spectrum of experiencing and sensing," and you can immerse yourself in all of it by hitting play down below.
If you like what you hear, be sure to head out and catch JindaLee and her band at the Monarch Tavern in Toronto on December 14. Wild Spectrum will be officially out on November 29.
