SANDRO PERRI / POLMO POLPO (CONSTELLATION RECORDS)
Polmo Polpo is the main project of Toronto-based musician Sandro Perri, who combines long-burn drones, submerged rhythms and various instrumental sources (slide guitar, strings, accordion) to make shimmering soundscapes embedded with gorgeous melodic hooks. Sandro runs The Honey Pot studio out of his Toronto home, is half of Glissandro 70, records under the moniker Continuous Dick, and plays with The Great Lake Swimmers and various projects affiliated with the Rat Drifting label in Toronto.
MANDELBROT (HIGHPOINT LOWLIFE)
Mandelbrot is the solo project of Keung from Mandelbrot Set. The solo shows focus more on the experimental side of guitar manipulation, utilizing the effects pedals and samplers to a much greater degree, and truly creating some mind-bending sounds. From a melodic base, the sound evolves in many directions, from digital crackle to white noise, from ebowed drones to subsonic lowends - each show is unique and guaranteed to elicit a reaction!
Mantler (aka Chris A. Cummings) was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1969. As a young child he wrote pop songs on the piano, which were thoughtfully preserved by his parents on cassette. He subsequently studied classical piano for 14 years but changed his creative focus from music to film writing and production.
"Mantler is a pop project with shadings of R&B, melodrama, mix tapes, shopping malls, experimental films, Herman Melville, and eternal hope in the face of everyday despair. It’s about trying to scale the heights of your heroes."
