On the rare occassion, YouTube posters do a pretty swell job of explaining the things posted, and the YT poster for Canada’s Tasseomancy’s live performance of “Soft Feet” (TheOpeningCeremony) did a pretty great job of giving the details that count:
“On Sunday, July 18th, a walking festival called Poor Pilgrim was held on the Toronto Island, an oasis of lush terrain and open lake waters with a cultural eco-system far-removed from the urban sprawl to its north. Throughout the day, we followed Sari and Romy Lightman, twin sisters that make up the group Tasseomancy, to their eventual open-air venue on the tiny, neighbouring Snake Island. Their set began with the final rays of dusk and ushered in a distant thunderstorm, blankets of sheet lightning backing up the flickering rays from a Gysin-styled Dream Machine, constructed by resident island installationist Yuula Benivolski. Sari and Romy’s music has haunted us since our session with them for La Blogotheque and NxNE, and you should expect many more projects with them in the near future. Here they sing “Soft Feet”, a track from their upcoming In A Glass Darkly”LP.”
The sisterly duo, known earlier as Ghost Bees, has a brand new album, Ulalume, out now on Out Of This Spark recordings. The album was produced by likeminded creepsters, Simon Trottier and Taylor Kirk of Timber Timbre. Who else? Check out the unsettling but beautiful video for “Heavy Sleep” if you dig Tasseomancy.
