LAND OF TALK
Land Of Talk’s former-punk frontwoman Elizabeth Powell emerged from Guelph’s anti-folk scene to create one of the most buzzy, brashy indie-rock acts in Montreal. Despite multiple lineup changes, post-tour fatigue, and a vocal polyp that crushed her ability to sing, the enigmatic songwriter has collaborated with members of Arcade Fire, Stars, and the Besnard Lakes and been long listed for the Polaris Prize. Her new EP, Life After Youth for Dine Alone Records, is her “homecoming to Montreal”—recorded in Breakglass Studios with Besnard Lakes’ Jace Lacek, who recorded the band’s first album. Life After Youth is the band’s first release in 7 years—a triumphant comeback that hurtles towards the great unknown with pleading vocals, incessant synth pulses, and ominous intensity.

HALF WAIF
Nandi Rose Plunkett writes, records and performs under the name Half Waif. Raised in the bucolic cultural hub of Williamstown, Massachusetts, Nandi was the daughter of an Indian refugee mother and an American father of Irish/Swiss descent. Her music reflects her lifelong endeavor to reconcile a sense of place. She was one of Williamstown’s only non-white residents.

As a kid, she listened to a wide mix of music that included everything from Joni Mitchell and Tori Amos, to Celtic songstress Loreena McKennitt and traditional Indian bhajans. In college, she studied classical singing and became enamored with the works of Olivier Messiaen and Claude Debussy. Her output as Half Waif reflects these varying influences, resulting in a richly layered collage of blinking electronic soundscapes, echoes of Celtic melodies and the sad chord changes of 19th-century art music.
