---> Brahja Waldman's Quartet. 'Love Work'
'Love Work' is a track by the Brahja Waldman?s Quartet, a highlight from their
upcoming second album Cosmic Brahjas. Howl! highlights this track as a
beautiful example of the vibrant and inspiring independent Jazz being created
at a grassroots level today in Montreal.
---> 'He Sings' Poem for Omar Khadr
'He Sings' is a striking poem on Omar Khadr by Montreal artist Fortner
Anderson. A poem to mark the tragic 10 year anniversary, January 11th, 2012, of
Guantanamo Bay prison.
"For those young men caught within the American gulag and in particular, Omar
Khadr, it is imperative that we speak out to denounce these blatant violations
of human rights and international law," writes Fortner Anderson, "a collective
silence of the American and Canadian people will doom these young men and will
show a lie in the heart of our own freedom."
---> Bakunin's Bum - People already know
'People already know' is by the duo Bakunin?s Bum, with Norman Nawrocki on
violin and 1-Speed Bike on beats/electronics. This moving track is from Fight
to Win, a benefit album, released in 2001 by G7 Welcoming Committee Records in
Winnipeg, for the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP).
This powerful track and the entire Fight to Win album features beats and violin
intermixed with speeches by activists Shawn Brant and Sue Collis, OCAP
organizers, speaking about anti-poverty struggles at an east-end community
center in Montreal.
Howl! arts collective releases this track now because today in Canada similar
anti-poor, anti-worker, anti-people austerity economics are being forced on the
people of Canada, by many of the same Conservative political players that took
aim at social programs and the poor in Ontario a decade ago.
---> Dust my Doom. by Kaie Kellough
'Dust my Doom' is a track by poet Kaie Kellough from the 2011 album Vox:Versus,
released by Wired on Words in Montreal. On this track you can listen to
Kellough in collaboration with celebrated Montreal DJ Andy Williams, providing
the backing sound collage.
Kaie Kellough is a Montréal word-sound systemizer. He is the author of
Lettricity (Cumulus, 2004), and Maple Leaf Rag (Arbeiter Ring, 2010), which was
nominated for the Manuela Dias design award. Kaie is the voice of one sound
recording, Vox:Versus, a suite of conversations between voice and instrument.
