Ensoleill​é​, 1972

by A Sacred Cloud

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Montreal, that great and bewildering torrent of sprawl and assertion; of grand presence and might. Swallowing, its stomach that mighty crucible that, on occasion, explodes to rebirth what it has consumed in entirely new form: post-rock reborn as futurist ambient drone-rock. Artefacts of cultural and creative convergence at play, its mountains congregating at the point where the old begets the new, and the new adopts the old. Distinctions born of interaction and close-quarters, musical and otherwise.

    Released on vinyl from Montreal’s Jeunesse Cosmique and cassette from Etobicoke’s Arachnidiscs, ENSOLEILLÉ, 1972 is subdued in its capacity to serve as cathartic overture, quick and quiet with its breaths, careful… intentional. A Sacred Cloud are the sounds of a community stirring, not to draw attention, but rather to remind itself that it is still there. That amidst the churning of urban sprawl, identities can indeed remain distinct, artistries uncompromised, and genres — those proverbial melting pots of self-expression — are able to adapt to changing climates; global, yet micro-level. Elegiacal and momentous. The tonalities of a place existing within a place. Sunny, 1972.

    Weird Canada - Joshua Robinson

    A Sacred Cloud makes music ripe for seasonal change and solitary evenings of focused introspection. Ensoleillé, 1972, their latest album jointly released by Jeunesse Cosmique and Arachnidiscs Recordings, encompasses a sound world that evokes both the spacier side of Serge Bulot and Leyland Kirby’s fractured romantic leanings.

A Sacred Cloud Montréal, Québec

C’est apprendre à connaître musicalement une autre personne, quelqu’un de complice. Une musique méditative, transcendante, de voyage à travers les sens. S’évader de son propre corps, esprit et de manœuvre.

Être dans un état de purification, oublier les ennuies du monde moderne pour une lévitation pacifiste. Contrôler ses émotions au dépend de sa rationalité.
