InfoCD & LP

Animator, opens with 'Montuno', a 9-minute account of a hallucination about the repetition of days, the split seconds that define us, and the strangeness of the certainty of death.

There's something almost supernatural to the feel of this album: "'Animator' is supposed to be some weird resuscitation. The animator's job is to create the semblance of movement in things that cannot move themselves. The musician's is to make us feel like something is happening with a sound," explains singer and multi-instrumentalist Jessie Stein.

Recorded and produced at the Treatment Room by band member and experimental brass player Pietro Amato, and mixed by Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes at his Breakglass Studios in the band's hometown of Montreal, 'Animator' is a cathartic sophisticated collection of songs.

As melodically compelling as it is artistically rich, 'Animator' is intuitive, seductive, moody and textural. It slowly unfolds its beauty and trusts the listener to stay with it.
