NXNE Presents: Glass Animals With Son Lux
EARLY: Tasseomancy This event is 19 and over TasseomancyWebsiteFacebookTwitterLinksTasseo is the musical/visual project of sisters, Sari and Romy Lightman. They began making music in Nova Scotia, inspired by outsider artists such as Robbie Basho, Moondog, Laura Nyro and Kathy Acker. With the addition of band members, Evan Cartwright on percussion and Johnny Spence on keyboards, they have found their own interpretation of popular music, creating warm melodic hooks, dance driven drums, and steel pan rhythms, set to a backdrop of philosophical play. As back up singers of the electronic outfit, Austra, the sisters brought their unique stage presence and artistic influence to the project, with Sari's contribution as lyricist for Olympia, and Romy's visual efforts as the band's art director. Currently, they are planning to release their third album, revealing a lighter side to the Lightman Sisters.
Label: Out Of This Spark (North America) + Turf (UK)
Bio: Tasseomancy is a continuation of what was a bare bones neo-folk duo. Formerly known as Ghost Bees, Canadian twins Sari and Romy Lightman have found a heavier, more ambient sound, ripe with dreamy, dissonant vocals, influenced by eastern song, drone music, phonography and myth.
