Organballoon - [first piece]

This longstanding but intermittently-performing project from Justin Haynes and Ryan Driver is exactly what its name promises — the former on organ, the latter squeak-singing on balloons. On the surface it's a little goofy (and visually, even more so when Haynes doubles up on melodica), but in execution it's a strange kind of sacred music, finding the elevation in giving up on the sublime and giving the ridiculous a try.

[Track Could Bend is back on Tuesday (March 7th) with a fab lineup including Christine Bougie, Someone's Memory and act tbh. Remember that we'll be at our new location, The Steady Café, on the south side of Bloor at Havelock, just a short stroll from Dufferin subway!]
