Presented by: Coax Records, Copper Owl
Edmonton’s Concealer album launch party for the co-release of fêted:fetid by Weatherbelle and Coax Records joined by Rae Spoon.


Sleazy rock and roll and proto-punk collide with emotionally naked post-folk. “One of the stranger musical partnerships to have ever risen from the Edmonton music scene” (Vue Weekly), Concealer combines disparate musical traditions to create melodic and hypnotic Heavy Wave.

Polaris Music Prize nominated songwriter Mark Davis sings and plays treated bass. And, when not striking poses, missmannered supplies keyboard drones and dial-twisting shrieks and blips. Ancient drum machines provide static beats. Flamboyance spars with stoicism. Ambience flirts with aggression. From sinister to soothing and back again. Like Fairport Convention meets Suicide.
