At once both delicate and abrasive, Raleigh Moncrief‘s Don’t Shoot (Watered Lawn, 2012) evokes emotions of frustration and anxiety. The strong contrast and spinning imagery makes it hard to focus on anything for longer than a few seconds, much like the music itself.
If you were lucky, you caught Raleigh Moncrief the last time he was in Toronto Javelin at Parts & Labour on Queen West for Canadian Music Week. He took on a scattering of US cities afterwards, stamping them with his signature brand of glitchy experimental weirdness. These two songs are still some of my favourites of all time.
