Toronto artist, Lou Canon will release her new full-length Audomatic Body on July 10 via Paper Bag Records. The full-length features guest vocalists Ariel Engle (Broken Social Scene/La Force), Hayden, Tim Kingsbury (Arcade Fire) and Brendan Reed (The Unicorns/Arcade Fire). Today, ahead of of the album’s arrival, Cannon has shared th single “Sleeper Wave.”
“Sleeper Wave” is inspired by her reverence for the ocean and the loss of a close friend. During the writing process by the sea, she would ”pass by these cautionary signs warning about the sleeper wave: a rogue wave that would creep up out of nowhere, take you from your lull of comfort, and drag you deep into the unknown waters.
Audomatic Body belongs on its very own plane. Kinetic beats pulse within it’s swampy waters, where natural and synthetic vibrations coalesce beneath Canon’s delicately distorted, sometimes almost-whispered vocals. The album was recorded with producer Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre, Basia Bulat) in Montreal, with some parts made in home set-ups at a little cabin in the Russian river, up north in Grey County, in Prince Edward County and in Toronto.
