AroarA bringing their Avant-Garde Sound to MariposaPosted on
Montreal-based AroarA is a creative duo that amplifies cigar box guitars, uses a 404 sampler to trigger mellotrons and black sabbath bells, blends voices, and plays twin guitar lines.
Their album, In The Pines, is based on the work by the same title of American poet Alice Notley.
It interprets a depression era tableaux laced with quotations from the folk, blues and gospel music of that period.
According to nightlife.ca, the music of this former member of Broken Social Scene/Apostle of Hustle paired with a member of Land of Kush is a lovely stroll through minimal pop, loose rock, and world bits.
