Atsuko Chiba - Fata Morgana

Full review to follow. It's always nice to get a chance to have folks from Montréal come on down the highway — sometimes we don't hear about bands until there's a certain level of buzz. This five-piece might tag themselves as "post-punk/post-rock/psychedelic" — and that's certainly valid — but it's the way that all of those are filtered through a proggy sensibility that gives them a fresh spin that a lot of post-rock bands lack. Add a strong visual flair (the songs were soundtracking footage of a masked figure's wanderings) and you could imagine this band playing the Big O as easily as a Mile End dive.

* Thanks to a commenter for passing the title to this one along.
