THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT ALBUM OF THE WEEK
With his new album, “La Riviere", Loig decides to create from a sound texture he likes, samples, keyboards, vocals.
In this album, he is about time passing, friends who fade, intimate wounds, sweet nostalgia and love. The album alternates between pop song and more progressive songs.
This album is also an opportunity for Loig to rework with J.Luc Charreton and Jim Warren (Arcade Fire sound engineer, Radiohead), a friend of Loig for more than 25 years and a major contributor to the finalization of this album, thanks to his friendly and artistic support. The Mastering is made by Chris Potter (Sarah McLachlan, Diana Krall ...)
In concert, he is accompanied by Maude Lacquement, a young Montreal singer. Equipped with his machines and guitars he distills a deep, poetic and percussive sound.
In 2019 his album will be adapted by the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra.
Loig has been back on stage since June 2018, at the Vancouver Summer Festival, Victoria's, Khatsahlano Festival, Portland, Seattle, VIFF ...
