Montreal’s Anemone to Stop In Windsor With Lasalle’s Dane Roberts & Madeline Doornaert

The Rose City has the honour of being the second stop on Anemone’s 2018 North American tour. The Montreal-based group of Chloé Soldevila, Miles Dupire-Gagnon and Gabriel Lambert will be downtown at the Windsor Beer Exchange, 493 University Ave, Thursday night, starting at 8pm.

It is all part of a promotional trip to create awareness for a just released extended play, “Baby Only You and I.” The EP includes a quiet dance tune of the same name, immediately reminiscent of vintage Fleetwood Mac but which quickly progresses ahead a few decades.

Luminelle Recordings, a newly created record company which has taken on the group, describes Anemone’s style as, “dance pop that pairs swirly 60s ye-yé with grown-up groove for a sound that’s spacey and sophisticated at the same time.”

Given the group’s Montreal base, the EP also includes the hypnotic percussion centric “Bout De Toi,” which, aside from a few lyrics in French, is mostly instrumental.

Also included on Thursday’s bill will be LaSalle’s Dane Roberts and Madeline Doornaert known locally for jazz, pop and a few original tunes. Madeline’s next appearance will be May 26 during Jeff Burrows 24 Hour Drum Marathon at Good Time Charly, making Thursday a good opportunity to preview her act.

Doornaert tells her Facebook friends that she is spending the summer learning a hundred new classic tunes.
