20h30: IRREVEREND JAMES and the CRITICAL MASS CHOIR

IRREVEREND JAMES and the CRITICAL MASS CHOIR

Gospel music began as a cry for freedom. Freedom from oppression. Freedom from brutality. Freedom from shame. We’re bringing it back to its roots. Free think everything. IRREVEREND JAMES and the CRITICAL MASS CHOIR Godless Gospel

Acoustic / Indie / Folk Rock

La voix de David Martel vous transportera au plus profond de son être, apercevant au passage tant sa belle sensibilité, son amour pour le folk, que sa passion démentielle.

So Long Montreal. And thanks for nothing!Dès la première écoute, I Hardly Knew Me enchante. Le premier disque du Montréalais a tout pour séduire. On serait parfois tenté de faire des comparaisons – un Patrick Watson ou un Damien Rice vitaminé? – mais on se ravise. L'opus est radicalement du David Martel, un nom à ne pas oublier. À travers cette atmosphère douce et stimulante, Martel propose Yours and Mine, la plus belle chanson de 2008. ****» Vincent Fortier, Métro

«There's a reason people won't shut up about David Martel, and it begins and ends with the immediate appeal of his debut disc. I Hardly Knew Me is a minor tour de force, a smartly-written record that lets Martel explore all sides of his talent and vision. This is a dynamic first record with wide appeal. ****» Dave Jaffer, Hour

«On ne connaissait pas encore ce David Martel, mais on va régler ça bientôt. [...] Un coup de coeur instantané»

Folly and the Hunter

Folly and the Hunter is an Indie Folk Band from Montreal Canada. They give a unique contribution to the Indie genre, blending the American folk tradition with ambient post-rock influences. F & H write tranquil yet sorrowful songs akin to that of Bon Iver, The National and Iron & Wine, while adding energy to the compositions with build ups and cascades of sound similar to that of Sigur Ros, Sufjan Stevens and Arcade Fire. Folly and the Hunter are releasing their debut album, titled ‘Residents’, in the beginning of 2011.
