Andy Meyers is the former guitarist of Toronoto art-punk legends The Scenics. He’s gone off to do more exploratory work after moving to the Vancouver area, and this, his latest work, is a collection of soundscapes set to the poetry and vocals of fellow Canadians Diana Hayes and Susheela Dawne.
From the release’s Bandcamp website:
Composer/producer Andy Meyers was co-recipient of Canada Council Grants to score two CDs of spoken word with award winning poet Brian Brett. (“an often unsettling meld of orphan sounds and menacing undercurrents, and an offbeat celebration of those old staples: love, experience, sex and death.” Paul Tucker, Quietus) In 2019 Andy wrote music for the documentary Dosed, which played movie theatres around the world and won ‘Peoples’ Choice’ awards at various Film Festivals. (“A must see film- a captivating, white knuckle experience” Forbes).
It’s good to see an old alt-rocker continuing to explore new music after all this time.
