Lucien Lahey makes the vastness of the world feel intimate. Behind layers of paper-thin vocals underscored by atmospheric guitar plucks, Lahey creates delicate microcosms of sound; an aural nature rife with minute gusto.

Kakagi is a folk-rock band from Winnipeg, MB. Heavily influenced by other prairie songwriters, Kakagi writes earnest songs about mundane places and situations. Kakagi takes their name from a lake in Northwestern Ontario close to the summer camp where the band first played together. Kakagi’s music fits well with the canoe trips the band members took in their youth: relaxed, yet determined, and somewhat unpredictable.
