A Blemish In The Great Light (Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
A Blemish In the Great Light is the third album by Montreal-based quarter Half Moon Run, produced by legendary indie rock producer Joe Chiccarelli.
The word everyone comes back to when describing Montreal indie rockers Half Moon Run is “complex” (The Guardian, Exclaim, et al.) Whether they’re billed as dreamy alt-pop, bucolic alt-folk, or psychedelic indie rock, the four multi-instrumentalists—Devon Portielje (vocals, guitar, piano, percussion), Conner Molander (vocals, guitar, keyboard, piano, pedal steel, bass, harmonica), Dylan Phillips (vocals, drums, piano, keyboard), and Isaac Symonds (vocals, drums, mandolin, synth, bass)—have built their name on cerebral, acrobatic arrangements and harmonies that lilt prettily till they turn feral.
All four members have spent the time off since Sun Leads Me On studying: that is, putting in the work that earns the luck. They’ve been practicing their instruments, reading, listening, focusing on their technical skills. “Basically just re-examining everything we know about how to be a band. It’s a little bit like starting over,” says Molander. “Of course, jamming has changed. But there’s something that’s really the same about it. It reminds me of a relationship, people really change and relationships that last are relationships that evolve.”
