Beaver Sheppard has been making genius/frenetic lo-fi acoustic freak-folk here in Montreal for over a decade, but since starting critically-acclaimed Montreal SleazeRock band Country, his musical palette has become even more colorful and effective.
Beaver has defined a goal for SleazeRock, specifically to remain 10 years ahead of Los Angeles musically at all times. What would LA think?
Working with bandmate/DJ/Producer David Whitten, his new songs are boisterous and sometimes approaching My Bloody Valentine territory, if they were playing the Dance Revolution Arcade Game while recording their bed tracks. Think Ride (when they still had pedals) covering New Order. This is music made for when your friend Molly drops by, ancient folk wisdom married to an Asimo robot at drone-point.
Here is Country live @ Sala Rossa performing one of their notable songs "Africa" live @ Sala Rossa on May 24th 2014.
