We’re really excited to welcome 4AD recording artist and Kazoo! favourite U.S. Girls back to Guelph. Her newest album, Half Free, is one the best albums of 2015.
A captivating musical force, Meg Remy has evolved from the raw, corrosive 4-track fidelity found on her early records to the unabashed art-pop of recent work (U.S. Girls on KRAAK, 2011; Gem, 2012). Her work has increasingly shone a light on her unique voice – at once both acidic and saccharine – with recent efforts managing to “widen and universalize her music without losing a drop of what previously made it so special and personal” (Pitchfork).
STÜKA are Brian Schirk and John Pritchard. They are catchy, dark, and intense. They filter intense feeling through distortion and delay, letting samplers and programmed drums set the bed for a cathartic performance.
Poster coming soon!
