playStream Bend Sinister’s Small Fame in its entirety all week on CBC Music.
Vancouver progressive rock band Bend Sinister is releasing its highly anticipated new album on July 10, and CBC Music has an exclusive stream of the album all this week. Small Fame is the band’s first full-length album since their 2008 release, Stories of Lovers, Tales of Lovers. Small Fame follows Bend Sinister’s traditional brand of progressive pop rock blended with classical melodies. The album is sure to be your summer anthem; it will carry you through the hot days of July and have you hitting replay all through August.
For the last three years, the band has been relentlessly touring and releasing music. They have released two EPs and one full-length album. The band’s songs are infused with their musical influences, such as Queen and Supertramp, but it’s their original sounds that carry the band to an artistic high. At the heart of the band is Dan Moxon, who can be seen sitting in front of a piano, behind a set of drums or annihilating a microphone. It’s Moxon’s falsetto that provides the final topping for a summer album.
Small Fame was recorded at Fader Master and Mushroom Studios in Vancouver and was produced by Shawn Cole (You Say Party, Yukon Blonde).
