Sandro Perri returns

Fans of Toronto’s Sandro Perri have reason to rejoice!  The talented multi-instrumentalist has a new album out next week, and he’ll be coming to Hamilton next month for November 11’s Art Crawl on James Street North!  Sandro is well known for his numerous side-projects, most notably Polmo Polpo, and through his collaborations with other musicians such as Great Lake Swimmers and Barzin.

The first time Megan and I saw him live, he was playing to the enraptured guests of a Hamilton house party.  A very spookily-lit living room provided the perfect setting for his ambient, hazy and experimental music.  At the time, I think his first album under his own name, Plays Polmo Polpo, was a newer release, so the songs were both familiar to Polmo Polmo devotees like us, but still vivid in their organic reinterpretation.

We haven’t heard much from Sandro since 2007’s Tiny Mirrors (maybe because he focused on producing music for a few years?), but Megan and I both look forward to hearing Impossible Spaces in its entirety when it’s released on October 18th.  But for now, here’s the song “Love and Light”, from the new record:
