Artist: Jennifer Castle + Wyrd Visions (feat. Owen Pallett)
Song: You Don't Have To Be
Recorded at The Music Gallery ("Weird Canada Showcase" a.k.a. Wyrd IV), May 11, 2013.Jennifer Castle + Wyrd Visions - You Don't Have To Be
Full review to follow. After an afternoon listening salon devoted to digging through some of the albums the Music Gallery released on its record label, Weird Canada showed its "genre agnosticism" in practice with a night featuring three rather different acts. These two soloists have collaborated before (on the "My Boat/Voice of God" 12") but here took it to another level. Besides some a capella numbers to start and close the set, the bulk of it involved Castle and Colin Bergh taking turns singing each other's songs. Unannounced guest Owen Pallet sat in for most of the set, adding flourishes on violin and piano.
