Published Nov 23, 2014In its short existence, Pat Jordache's Montreal-based record label Banko Gotiti has already released an impressive collection of records from its strong roster. Jordache rightly used the M For Montreal festival as a platform to showcase his label's talented trio of acts, which includes Vesuvio Solo and the Group Sound. Full disclosure: As many of the preceding sets that I attended ran late, I was only able to catch the last few tracks of Noni Wo's set, but the little I did see was charming and pleasant.
There's an ease with which four-piece performed that was refreshing, and they know how to get a groove going. And while their brand of indie pop is nothing groundbreaking, their assuredness in their material, most of which was recently released on their U S B E P through Summer Cool, makes them a promising act to look out for. Sometimes a nice pleasant set is all you're looking for, and Noni Wo managed to end our M For Montreal experience nicely.
