Tantalizing music by the Montréal husband-and-wife team of Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas. A dreamy cocktail of West Coast harmonies, strings, and fuzzy psychedelic arrangements, their music is something of a masterpiece that takes after the Arcade Fire's Funeral. Songs rattle around on wobbly guitars and shimmering electronic effects until they spill over in a big rumpus, driven on by a six-person band and five-piece choir. The group's main attraction, however, is Goreas, who has a softly sensual voice pitched somewhere between Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval and a wet, warm kiss behind the ear.
