Strength has little to do with impenetrable walls or prideful swagger. True strength lies in surrender. Armed with a dusty tenor and fearless prose, Giant Hand has quietly sown a formidable canon of outsider folk and drone-gospel. After two critically-lauded, underground releases, Giant Hand presents Old Cosmos, a confident yet ever unhinged collection of naked confessionals. Co-produced by The Acorn and Evening Hymns, Old Cosmos explodes upward from Giant Hand’s earlier, aberrant foundations, into Gaudí-like spires of pristine and fearless art-folk.
Blunt Chunks is the solo project of Caitlin Woelfle-O’Brien, born out of a curiosity and desperation for exploring the endless world of sound and song. Using looping pedals, samplers and an ever-changing selection of electronic gear and instruments, Caitlin’s songs swirl around you like a settling mist. Combining pop sensibility, ambient tones and vocal layering, her songs have been described as “music to keep close to your heart”, “electronic Dolly Parton”, “hypnotic” and “mermaid folk”.
Peterborough, Ontario’s Nick Ferrio returns with an album of ten rock & roll songs called Soothsayer.
The album marks a departure from his previous folk and country albums, with more of a 70’s power-pop sound, reminiscent of Elvis Costello and T-Rex, but still completely his own.
