Moondle at Sawdust Collector with Marin Patenaude w/ Pugs & Crows, Källor

  • Gold Saucer Studio 207 West Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V6B 2N4 Canada (map)


Singer/songwriter/guitarist Marin Patenaude’s absorbing sound is earthy, soulful, and heartbreakingly beautiful, evoking comparisons with Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, and k.d. lang. Marin’s pure voice ties together country, blues, and folk into something sublimely intangible. For this performance she will be joined by the Pugs & Crows as the band will be travelling east for a handful of shows together.

Källor (pronounced Che-llor) means beginnings, sources, origins, like the spring where the stream starts. The Vancouver based duo consists of Sanna Henriksson Spolaor (Cello/Piano/Vocals) and Abhishek Gupta (Electronics/Guitar), Their music combines elements of folk, classical, pop and electronic influences to amalgamate and form a blend of cinematic and experimental music. From intricate sound design to classical melodic elements, Källor aims to combine the old with the new and create a space where music transcends conventions and provides a journey to the past and the future through musical storytelling.

Magic realism meets jazz-inflected indie pop: inspired by the writings Jorge Luis Borges, Vancouver’s Moondle navigate dreamy sonic labyrinths, enchanting libraries of real and made-up languages, and lush, imaginative musical interplay. At turns wistful and transcendent, Moondle open the mind and uplift the soul.
