BRAIDS
BRAIDS
Braids are a three-piece experimental pop band from Montreal. In the spring of 2015 they released Deep In The Iris, their standout third record. Companion is the band's latest 19 minute EP, written during the Deep In The Iris sessions, and completed during a burst of creative energy in August 2015.

Here Braids use the Deep In The Iris palette to paint decidedly different vistas – joy, disaffection, thunderous explosion to delicate introspection, the minimalistic power of "Companion" to the patient blossoming of "Sweet World". The EP offers a brief snapshot of a constantly-evolving group, perpetually exploring the edges of their unique voice.

Distinct in their own right, these four tracks are not to be dismissed as b-sides, outtakes, or the lesser of a group of songs. Though it uses Deep In The Iris as a compositional guidepost, Companion is a breathtaking journey all of its own.
TASSEOMANCY
Tasseo is the musical/visual project of sisters, Sari and Romy Lightman. They began making music in Nova Scotia, inspired by outsider artists such as Robbie Basho, Moondog, Laura Nyro and Kathy Acker. With the addition of band members, Evan Cartwright on percussion and Johnny Spence on keyboards, they have found their own interpretation of popular music, creating warm melodic hooks, dance driven drums, and steel pan rhythms, set to a backdrop of philosophical play. As back up singers of the electronic outfit, Austra, the sisters brought their unique stage presence and artistic influence to the project, with Sari's contribution as lyricist for Olympia, and Romy's visual efforts as the band's art director.
