"Axa Hour of Dora Bleu is the re-crystallizing of the sound of Dorothy Geller, formerly of From Quagmire (VHF Records) and Laconic Chamber (Camera Obscura.) Dorothy (voice, guitar and songwriting) is joined here by Brooke Crouser (Jackie-O Motherfucker) on piano, electric guitar and vibes; Alex Ste-Onge (Feu Therese, Et Sans, Shalabi Effect) on upright bass; Justin Evans (Rivers and Mountains, Et Sans, Shalabi Effect) on Rhodes and electronics and Francis Amirault (Le Sentier Lumineeux, Cian Ethrie) on percussion. On Clones of Eros, a sound is forged from the natural evolution of the sonic path of Dorothy Geller, with a strong impression made by her Montreal-based collaborators. This is living, breathing music -- a melding of a singular vision into a collective process resulting in a music with few easy reference points, music that demands to be heard on its own terms outside of any scenes or movements that may be in vogue momentarily. To attempt a more concrete analysis: the music can be considered 'of folk' while not referencing traditional folk forms, anchored in very particularized voice and guitar with accompaniment that is alternatively unified song form or seemingly improvised, depending on what is required in the moment."
