Good Friday, readers!
Today’s Band of the Month is Montreal’s Fire/Works. Motivated by the marriage of rhythm and ambiance, this French-Canadian progressive folk duo take a unique spin on organic acoustic instrumentation by adding a tasteful layer of patiently explosive effects to acoustic guitar and banjo. Lead by sweetly engaging vocal harmonies and backed by distant and pulsing drums, Fire/Works is a band perfect for kicking off those slow moving, long weekend mornings. You can listen to, and buy their album Grand Voyageur on bandcamp, and take a listen below.
