Clara Engel’s Looking Glass-Fire might be one of the most over-looked things this year. It’s a poetic 6-song masterpiece that is dense enough to arguably be an album. Her unique and distinct style and sound make her one of the most interesting song-writers to follow in Canada. Do yourself a favour and stream Looking-Glass Fire below.

While browsing through Bandcamp this morning, I found some new music from avant-garde artist Clara Engel. There’s also a special deal on her Bandcamp right now where you can get 20% off if you type the word “borscht” with your order.

[Listen] Clara Engel – Lovebirds

Avante-garde artist Clara Engel recently released an EP called The Lovebird’s Throat. This one is pretty dark, her voice filling most of the sound since the instruments are very minimalistic.

Now that I got all this hosting stuff figured out, back to my regular posting. I feel like I haven’t posted anything Canadian in a little bit. I don’t remember how I first came across Clara Engel. At first, I thought she was friggin weird. Her avante-garde blues and psychadelic fusion isn’t for you if you are close-minded. In midst of strangeness like in Lick My Fins you still have elements of a great song, a hook, and a simple but hypnotic rhythmic groove.
