New Canadiana :: Les Nitrates de Madame Mimieux – Rien n’est moins grave
From the small-town sweet epic of Benoit Poirier:
A comet that fled the big city (Montreal) to get away from its sorrow, Les Nitrates de Madame Mimieux (R.I.P. 2011-2011) landed in the small Eastern Townships’ village of Sutton. Quietly, the band began to work on a first opus of slacker folk-pop, soaring with old synths as vast and textured as the region that welcomed them and capable as much of towering, carried out moments as it is soft or worried ambience. This is lively music for a rainy day with a definite intention of taking you by the hand, changeable like the seasons while never getting completely dark, as if Walter Wendy Carlos’ Sonic Seasonings were played by Chad VanGaalen. Small-town sweet epic.
