Matt Monoogian (album release) Claire de la Loopa
Come join Matt Monoogian (full band) in celebrating his sophomore release with special guests Claire de la Loopa.
Matt Monoogian has been sitting in the shadows; honing his craft, searching for his voice and percolating disparate influences for his sophomore album, and it shows. The cinematic full-length from this unassuming sideman has the depth of singer-songwriter contemporaries such as Patrick Watson or Destroyer while harkening to the dark-folk of Timber Timbre and Okkervil River. His sweetly pining vocals reach deep into your soul while shrouding the extremely personal, affecting, subject matter. Monoogian has bared himself fully through these new songs.
Claire de la Loopa is the solo project of guitarist, violinist and songwriter, Claire Whitehead. Using a loop pedal for her violin, Whitehead creates percussive and iterant soundscapes for the atmospheric melodies of her songs. Paired with accompaniment on guitar, the music is a buoyant, yet dynamic setting for her words on growing up, feeling down, and creating what you want.
