Top Men w/ Aerialists
Particle bending new prog music w/ a party edge
Top Men specializes in high-energy performances fusing electronic, dance, and experimental music. In addition to their musical craftsmanship, Top Men has also mounted numerous large-scale multimedia productions featuring actors, dancers, elaborate sets and costumes, and intricate lighting design. The band's aesthetic is characterized by bizarre humour tempered with dread and wonder at the vastness of the universe.
Aerialists meld their ferociously creative harmonic sensibilities and deep love for folk traditions into a post-rock coloured sound called prog-trad. Featuring Scottish harpist Màiri Chaimbeul (Darol Anger & The Furies), and Canadian neo-folk innovators Adam Iredale-Gray (Fish & Bird) on guitar and Elise Boeur (Jenny Ritter) on fiddle, the group draws from the wells of Nordic and Gaelic music, adding expansive textures and meticulously sculpted arrangements to create captivating, genre-defying new music.
