This month’s pick is by local songstress Mika Posen, better known by her experimental pop project Merganzer. Each song that Merganzer releases unlocks a new door to the imagination, and “Montage” is no exception. Posen is an experienced multi-instrumentalist who has accompanied acts like Timber Timbre, Agnes Obel, and Forest City Lovers in the past.
Merganzer’s instrumental record by the same name is slated for release on October 18th through So Sorry Records and Record Centre Records. The release show in Ottawa on October 25th at Club SAW with support by Paper Beat Scissors. The record will be released on limited edition 12′ vinyl.
