Rolling Stone and NPR favourite, and Polaris Music Prize 2017 Short List artist Leif Vollebekk returns to Toronto after a packed Mod Club performance in April.
Previously striking comparisons to and drawing influence from Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Vollebekk's latest album Twin Solitude is a step toward a self-described approach of “never saying ‘no' to a song ever again.” The Globe and Mail called it “an album that marks a stylistic transition from his folk-troubadour past to something dreamier.” Exclaim! praised “Rarely simple, Twin Solitude is a striking display of Leif Vollebekk's talent and heart.”
Laurel Sprengelmeyer began performing as Little Scream in 2008, she played her first shows in Montreal using only a battered Stratotone guitar, a cigarette amp, and a mic on the floor so her feet could serve as percussion. Her 2011 debut The Golden Record, which Pitchfork called “a perfectly mixed bag of graceful folk, coiled pop, and expansive art rock” and NPR dubbed “absolutely captivating.” If that album was Little Scream’s searching, enchanting first step into the world, then the second record, Cult Following is the badass landmark cementing her place there.
