EDITORS’ NOTES

As lead singer for atmospheric Québec rockers Karkwa, Louis-Jean Cormier crafted widescreen soundscapes that earned rightful comparisons to Radiohead. On this second solo release, the soft-singing poet adds a variety of rhythmic patterns and expansive arrangements to his arsenal, making for a deeply evocative album rich in emotion and sparkling sonics. His songwriting shines as stark acoustic tracks open onto wildly colorful aural vistas: Witness the blend of banjos, oom-pah horns, and soothing “oohs” on opener "Si tu reviens.” Heartache never sounded so sweet.
