Primavera Sound Barcelona

La [2] de Apolo


Roll up roll up everybody, let’s gather around Efrim Manuel Menuck’s wagon! Come and check out his secret ointments, wonder at the sound of his magic boxes and enjoy the frisson of the unknown. Because Menuck has the name of a adventurer, and has already travelled the world with Godspeed You! Black Emperor and now does so alone. Crossing the Canadian border like a smuggler of sound experiments, the also-member of Thee Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra supplies remedies for the soul in dark bottles, balms for peace and remedies that say more through their silence than through their lyrics.
