M’lasse “Le Navire Chavire”

Named after Montreal’s now disappeared “Faubourg à M’lasse” neighborhood, Montreal trio M’lasse came about when Amer El-Balaa (guitar/vocals) answered an online ad by childhood friends Antony Plante (vocals/bass) and Steve Clairmont (drums) in search of a guitarist. Packing in 7 songs in 22 minutes, the band’s self-produced and self-titled debut EP, invites listeners on a musical journey from hazy, narcotic psych to full-bore shoegaze roar with detours through undulating, middle-eastern flavored surf, thunderous 70’s style riffing, fuzzed-out downer pop, and noise rock freakouts.
