Until The Ribbon Breaks - A Lesson Unlearnt 

January 20, 2015 - Kobalt Music

Media day Jan 20/21 in Toronto
"a band breaking molds with their avant-garde, genre-melting productions." - Earmilk

Until The Ribbon Breaks (UTRB) writes mesmeric, dark apocalyptic pop, meets infectious "Avant RnB" in a way that is both haunting and beautiful in its raw confrontation of human emotion. Each track tells a tale of love, loss, lust, infatuation, regret or fear all enveloped in cinematic imagery.

Terraplane

Will Butler - Policy
March 10, 2015 - Merge Records

Will Butler has been a member of the band Arcade Fire for over 10 years. This is his first release under his own name. The song structures are traditional; the arrangements are clean. The music is experimental only in that it attacks consistency as a requirement for sincerity. The songs are angry, loving, joking, tired, honest, idiotic. They clash against each other but also fit and work together-as if a blind watchmaker made a Frankenstein watch that came alive and told extremely accurate time while having conflicting feelings about its creator.
