Not every artist featured in this Oh Canada month was approved by every visitor - that's fine with me, but I do not accept any critique about Ariane Moffatt. I first heard her lovely voice on a Putumayo-album, in 2005, got hooked and quickly bought all her albums. Montréal-based Moffatt pairs gentle electronics to folky strumming, but on her last album Tous les sens the electronica got a bigger say. Ariane was ready for the dancefloor, so to speak. To emphasize the pushbuttonobjects even more, this month a remix-EP was released, featuring treatments by Deadbeat, Akufen and Pheek. I love the dubby reggaebubbles that Deadbeat put under Je veux tout. Tous les sens EP was released on vinyl, but you can buy it digitally via Audiogram. See Ariane live here.
Also below, my alltime favourite song by Ariane, Combustion Lente.
