Moulettes With Guest Thanya Iyer @ FESTIVAL HALL| The UKís Moulettes merrie-olde-England-via-Brooklyn outfits signify hipster dilettantes. The first notes of cello and violin provide a swelling stream on which float the lovely harmonies of Hannah Miller and Dr. Ruth Skipper. Itís deeply rooted in British Isles folk music, with a left turn: crescendo builds, little jazz inflections creep in, the minor key turns suddenly major. The two female voices are joined by a pair of menís, and a Queen-like four-part harmony swells to arresting volume. Dizzying shifts in dynamics and time signatures follow, the songs obeying a twisty logic of their own. Propelled by dramatic accompaniment sometimes reminiscent of progressive metal (although played on strings and bassoon), the lyrics fly by, sometimes at breakneck speed. Thanya Iyer Montrealís Thanya Iyer and her trio create a dreamy atmospheric indie soundtrack for our subconscious. Itís a soulful, complex labyrinth of sounds: a rapidly spinning and entrancing carousel of jazz, orchestral-pop and experimental music.
