PHÈDRE w/ BOYOOD & KEN PARK
Thursday April 10, 2014 at Pressed (750 Gladstone Ave)
8pm doors / 8:30pm start time / $8 door (no advance tickets)
PHÈDRE (MTL/TO, Daps Records) Sexy, psychy, dream-sandwich of mellifluous beats & melody. Denise Benson of GridTO: “Phèdre referenced decades of pop music history while it borrowed liberally from hip-hop, noise rock and ’60s psychedelia, and re-imagined it all into an electronic whole. Phèdre’s Daniel Lee and April Aliermo—also of Hooded Fang—collaborated with Doldrums on that album, but return now as a duo to release sophomore album Golden Age.”
BOYHOOD (Ottawa) In 2 short years, Caylie Runciman has quickly established herself as one of Ottawa’s most original, adventurous and boundless songwriters. Referencing the canon of psych-pop, punk, broadway showtunes and electronic no-wave, Boyhood is visceral rock, pulls no punches and guts you with melodies plucked effortlessly from the ether.
KEN PARK (Berlin/Toronto) He wants to transform his love of psychedelic guitar music into something that can be made and played live on an MC-303.
