Montreal: Lymbyc Systym @ le Divan Orange this SundayPosted by Joseph Sannicandro
The Bell brothers are back in Montreal for the first time since last year’s spring tour with Slow Six, and I’m excited. The brothers of Lymbyc Systym (all Ys!!) toured Asia last summer, and though we haven’t heard any new music from them since 2009’s excellent LP Shutter Release, hopefully we’ll get to hear some new tunes on Sunday. We know they’ve been busy though. Drummer Mike Bell recently contributed drums to a track on The Books latest record, as well as DJing around Asia, while his brother Jared played keys for Slow Six early last year and has been working on some visual art, including the video below and the cover to Wires.Under.Tension‘s debut earlier this year. The two play gorgeous, cinematic instrumental music, mostly drums and Rhodes with some programming and a little guitar. Check out the video below for “Narita” from their split with This Will Destroy You.
The duo will be performing as part of Montreal’s Under The Snow Festival. Also playing will be Sweet Mother Logic and Early Transcendentals.
