Rae Spoons bodiesofwater comes out on the twentieth anniversary of the first show Spoon ever played, and ten years after the release of their break-out album superioryouareinferior. As a non-binary person, Rae is no stranger to having an identity that doesnt fit societal and legal structures. Like bodies, water is regulated and increasingly commodified, despite being fundamental to life. On this, Spoons ninth album, they explore their common ground and connections with the ocean surrounding their Vancouver Island home. Rae will be accompanied by respectfulchild.
Singer/Songwriter Kym Gouchie is from the Lheidli T'enneh Nation in Prince George, BC. Canada. A self taught guitar player and a traditional hand drummer, she utilizes her eclectic background to inspire her as she combines elements of traditional, folk and country to create a unique voice. Raised among musicians, it wasnt until dealing with personal tragedy that she was able to find her voice on her own journey, which is realized with her debut album.
respectfulchild () is the solo instrumental project of Gan from Saskatoon on Treaty 6 Territory. Their music is both electronic in nature while being acoustically created, building experimental ambient soundscapes through slow progressions of meticulous improvisation. With a sound that has been likened to artists such as Brian Eno, Nils Frahm, and Owen Pallett, the lone presence of respectfulchild is able to bring quiet to even the noisiest of rooms.
The name respectfulchild is the literal translation of Gans Mandarin name [jìng er]. This name was given to Gan by their grandmother when they were born, a name and a culture theyve become estranged from having lived their whole life in the predominantly white world of the Canadian Prairies. The music of respectfulchild is Gans quiet way of seeking meaning in again
