Sister Ray (Edmonton)
“If there was any doubt that Sister Ray has become one of the most powerful voices in Western Canada, it was promptly stomped out after stunning standout sets opening for the equally devastating Mount Eerie at Sled Island 2018, and festival headliner Julien Baker this past June. The stark, reverb-drenched improvisations of Ella Coyes amplify the immensity and intensity of her stream-of-conscious words, ensuring that while no Sister Ray song may be heard twice, they are felt fully and communally by every captivated.”
Conversations With Bears
“Lucien Lahey makes the vastness of the world feel intimate. Behind layers of paper-thin vocals underscored by atmospheric guitar plucks, Lahey creates delicate microcosms of sound; an aural nature rife with minute gusto. Cutting the grandiosity of life down to three- and four-minute songs has never seemed so effortless.”
“Raf Wilcot makes music that sounds like ‘70s AM folk distorted inside a hall of mirrors. Listeners may know Wilcot from his past work leading Telstar Drugs or as a member of Un Blonde, but neither project will prepare listeners for the pastoral shimmer of the “sci-fi folk” he makes today. It’s gentle, curious-sounding songwriting befitting a pensive afternoon spent looking out the window.”
