This selection is unique and quite different of all you can find on the web or through traditional medias. le web ou dans les médias traditionnels. Durant tout le temps des Fêtes, découvrez notre sélection!

Nobody’s Might Ship heralds the first release from this talented young multi-instrumentalist from Montreal. Keen on keeping the flame of progressive rock à la Harmonium and Gentle Giant alive, Tristan has crafted a unique and compelling document that is bristling with studio experimentation, unconventional chords, odd time signatures, and extended microtonal vocal harmonies on par with Jacob Collier himself. Still, despite its many intricacies, it is ultimately a fun voyage of self-discovery, filled with moments of psychedelia and genuine virtuosity as Tristan uses his lead guitar as much as he does his own voice. This record should have you scratching your head in the best of ways, and gradually with each listen, the songs start to make sense and unfold like petals of a flower. A very promising start from the young artist who has not only written and recorded most of the parts himself, but has self-produced it as well.  So do yourselves a favour and step aboard Nobody’s Might Ship.
