NO MORE SHAPES:
Calgary-based duo No More Shapes, featuring Jay Crocker on guitar & electronics, and Eric Hamelin on drums & percussion. NoMoreShapes was formed in 2007 through a series of early Bug Incision (bugincision.com) gigs and from tapes filled with seemingly unremarkable, sweaty keyboard & drum riffs (written & recorded by Eric Hamelin). These disparate motifs would turn out to be the starting point for the groups' music and within the year enough material for an album was developed.
"Creesus Crisis" explores territories such as small sound electronic improvisations to full on Ornette-ish like free bop, drawing from musical sources such as rock , pop, folk, jazz, free improvisation and noise. No More Shapes have previously shared bills with the Cowboy Junkies, ZMF trio (Jesse Zubot, Jean Martin, Joe Fonda), Copilots, Joe Sorbara, Josh Zubot, Chad VanGaalen and more. Live shows include original compositions and arrangements from such sources as Black Sabbath, Thelonius Monk and Steve Lacy.

"The album has a likably garagey sound as the trio hustles through moody, splintery bop and clattery rock." - The New York Times

"Creesus Crisis shows creatively orchestrated compositions and mature, cogent improvisation skills from three fine emerging musicians." - Exclaim!

"...like mad scientists turned loose in the lab, feeding off one each others’ talents and eccentricities until you swear you think they are at least a quartet." - Pop Matters

AEROPLANE TRIO:
Vancouver's Aeroplane Trio use a conventional acoustic jazz setting as a platform for their improvisations and compositions. Twisting and contorting their instruments, nothing is sacred in creating the trio's unique sound. Trumpeter JP Carter, along with bassist Russell Sholberg and drummer Skye Brooks, have found a common sensibility; they make music both delicate and combustable, strange and beautiful. The trio is releasing a new CD/DVD on Drip Audio this summer.
