Freelove Fenner - Shepherdess live at Pop Montreal
When I first heard their too short and oh so sweet Pineapple Hair E.P almost two years ago, I was immediately in love with their music. Caitlin Loney’s deep vocals hypnotize me, and their minimal pop sensibilities hook me every time. Most of their tracks clock in at under 2 minutes, and yet I’ve rarely heard another band that can seeminly do so much in such a short time, and always leave me wanting more. That first cassette EP was 6 tracks and only 11 minutes long! I can’t till you how many times I listened to that cassette waiting for them to release an album, which is now thankfully available for your purchase.
Freelove Fenner - Do Not Affect a Breezy Manner LP is available on qualoity 180g vinyl from Fixture Records here
I’ll finish up my Brave Radar series with a video of my favorite track off their Message Centre album. That little guitar jam at around 1:24 is so good, and Tessa’s soft voice is perfect as always. Definitely grab their album, and catch them live if you can.
Brave Radar - Too long Weekend live at Pop Montreal
Brave Radar & Freelove Fenner were two of the “openers” for the Dot Wiggin Band on Saturday night at La Sala Rossa, and were also the only bands I truly cared about seeing at that show (or at Pop for that matter). Ever since I picked up Brave Radar’s excellent Message Centre cassette, I’ve been hooked. Live they put on a fantastic show that sounded clear and true to their recorded work. I also may have inadvertently heckled one of the members that I keep in contact with over email, which I’m still feeling guilty about. I guess asking someone to smile cause we’re happy to see them playing could’ve been worse, right?…
