Culture Reject + Lauren Best at Heartwood Hall
October 23, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
“Canadian Culture Reject creates Lo-Fi Soul music inside Broken Pop songs. While drawing comparisons to Andy Shauf, Talking Heads, Big Thief and the “real soundtrack to a Wes Anderson film” — Culture Reject songwriter Michael O’Connell explores themes of power + justice, mental health and radical self-care with soundscapes that reflect his move away from Toronto to the wide open spaces found hours north of the city. Between evening swims, Culture Reject is crafting it’s 5th international release, invisible work — an intimate, guitar/synth/voice dance party –set for release on Specific Recordings (France) in April 2023, with tour dates in UK, Europe, Canada and the US.”
