Duchess Says - I Repeat Myself

Since 2009, the summer Wavelength festival has been a highlight of the season, slowing down the hectic "festival experience" to an Island pace and making the whole thing as much about the vibe and the location as the (always well-curated) music. When this spring's floods shut the Island down, there was a ripple of apprehension from many quarters at the loss of favourite summer hangs, culminating in the festival decamping to the mainland. The WL crew did an excellent job in emulating the festival experience in the outdoor/daytime portion, but it was harder to feel the same sense of relaxation and freedom in a bar.

There was a bit of that WL festival déjà vu with this Montréal quartet reprising their appearance from the sixteenth anniversary party. It did, however, give vocalist/keyboardist Annie-Claude Deschênes a bigger room to rampage through, escaping the stage to sing from the floor for the whole middle of the set.
