our book and the authors are gabriel d'amour and jean-christian arod. they're located in montréal and they have often been compared with acts like the postal service, maps, beirut and others. i discovered them in summer last year, but i never really listened to them, except the outstanding song "killing flies". last week, when i was looking for songs for another eden in stereo compilation, i stumbled upon their album again and i decided to fancy another listen. honestly, i was about to kick my ass, because i immediately fell in love with the album and i got a little upset, that this didn't happen in summer last year.
killing flies is an outstanding song, but the whole album is a masterpiece. it lives from the warm atmosphere thes e guys produce with their excellent sound and singing. i am not a huge fan of piano driven songs, but on "watch me" it works perfect and matches with the wonderful singingn and the electronic instrumentation. a song that gives me goose-bumps all over. same happend to me while listening to "everyone forever" and "causes". fantastic album... heavily underrated!
