"Rae Spoon is an award-winning Canadian musician, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and author. They have released eight solo albums spanning folk, indie rock and electronic genres over the past twelve years and have toured across Canada and internationally. Rae was the subject and composer of the score for the National Film Board–produced musical-documentary My Prairie Home, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2014. They have been nominated for two Polaris Prizes, a Lambda Literary Award, a Western Canadian Music Award, a CBC Radio 3 Bucky Award and a MOTHA Transgender Musician of the Year Award.
Armour, Spoon’s eighth solo album, is the highly anticipated follow-up to Polaris Prize–nominated My Prairie Home, a musical about Spoon’s fraught childhood in Alberta. As much as My Prairie Home was about Spoon’s upbringing as a queer youth in a Pentecostal household, Armour is about their view of the future. Moments of reckoning with trauma and self-preservation mingle with messages of hope and survival. Armour explores the idea that there is no instruction manual for healthy adulthood, asserting that the attempt to construct meaning is itself the point of life. The album is a tribute to the intimate space where both hope and despair have space to share the same voice. The ten new songs hold all of the lyrical depth indicative of Spoon’s compositions while showcasing their distinctive voice. Armour’s self- produced enigmatic soundscapes blur the lines between organic and electronic instruments. Analogue synthesizers, electronic drum programming, drum kits, percussion, electric bass, cello and guitar carry the album through pop refrains and danceable beats" www.raespoon.com
"Hailing from East Vancouver, Parlour Panther is a trio that could be defined as gorgeous grit rock. These queers work hard to create music that inspires your heart while also pulsing through your limbs, with songs full of electric guitars, synths, infectious dance grooves and powerful vocals in overlapping harmony.
Parlour Panther's first LP "Hot Magic" will be released early 2018."
A RAVEN CALLED CROW
"A Raven Called Crow makes a glittering web in her heart's palm and that's how she catches songs."
