"Lullabye Arkestra is a bass and drum duo that have been playing and self-releasing glorious slabs of distorto-soul for several years. Formed in Toronto by Justin (drums) and Katia (bass), the Ark has played shows throughout eastern Canada as a duo and as a large band, adding horns, voices and organ. Their slow, swampy, overdriven cover of 'Summertime' was an early signature tune, along with a clutch of original raveups ranging from one-minute combustions of riffage and hollering to longer, fuzzed-out R&B numbers, often marked by those sincere but sassy boy/girl call-and-response vocals that make everyone's day. Ampgrave is a hell of a good time, full of testifying and tenderness, seesawing between massed instruments and the raw minimalism of the core rhythm section. Justin rounds up fellow Do Make Say Think players Ohad, Brian and Jason on horns and hollering, along with Shelton Deverel on organ and Julie Penner on violin. An additional 10-voice 'Chorus Oblivia' of exuberant caterwaul also rallies to the cause."
