LES FONTAINES are a Toronto "éléctro-psyche" synth pop duo.
Their brand new Canandaa e.p. is a four single available in DL and limited edition cassette formats.
Canandaa (part 1) is taken from Les Fontaines' debut 8 track LP "MAGIC TOUCH", which is also out now on Toronto's paper+sound label. Parts 2 and 4 reprise the heavy electro drone, while part 3 aims directly at mutant disko dancefloors.
The four tracks on the Canandaa single were created solely utilizing a small collection of vintage synthesizers, drum machines and cheap & nasty effects units.
Long sessions of electronic music improvisation influenced by a collection of cheap 80's hi-energy 12" singles, fueled by other-worldy substances.
Les Fontaines love their distorted hand-played synth leads, over-layed on top of choppy drum box funk rhythms, arpeggiated bass lines and swirling, walls of phased sound. Occasional metallic voices float in and out of the mix, commanding the listener to pay attention.
Les Fontaines create their own singular sound of psychedelic, electronic, art synth punk-funk.
