about

The first New Dialect album, released late 2011, happened to be a most improbable musical encounter between multi-instrumentalist Patrick Hamilton and painter-turned-singer Élise Lafontaine: a long improv on a Lowery Organ followed by Élise’s inspired ethereal vocal nonsense, afterwards structured into distinct pop and/or abstract pieces. Drums and various other instruments were then added, as well as Brian Lipson’s acute and playful trumpet. The later live version included sometimes up to 9 musicians.

While the second effort, “Convenients”, was created with the same approach, it included more materials to work with - subsequent improvs by Bruce Gottlieb (vocals, pianistic synth), Thierry Gauthier (guitar, live processing), Michel Dufour (electronic drum kit), as well as Sébastien Fournier (trumpet) and Élise Lafontaine (vocals) were added to the initial organ run. Like the first album, it was recorded at Thierry Gauthier’s studio in Montreal’s Villeray district, and finally mastered early 2015.

Track Name: Expectations
Petty pure pansies rock
expectations
you know what they're gonna do
you know what they cannot do

they may go
roll and wrinkle
crawl and crinkle
though the will's slow
Track Name: Pickle jar
Put my picks in the pickle jar
'cause my musical career ain't going so good so far

now you're clever
savour sever
cave or clamber
hearth or heather

boy, you're buoyant
lurch resurgent

submerged words
emerging current
Track Name: Meltdown solitude II
Meltdown solitude
wax uneasy in your sharkskin suit
she means business too
she's coming to
the rendez vous

feed back song tribute
long gone band commands your heart anew

dance with you
