EDITORS’ NOTES

The title of this Montreal roots combo’s sixth release translates as High Mass—an apt advertisement for the album’s communal energy, political proselytising and transcendental ambitions. Despite the acoustic instrumentation, Les Cowboys Fringants are hardly tethered to folk tradition, investing the klezmer-inspired “8 secondes” and the countrified frenzy of “Symphonie pour Caza” with the foot-stomping fervour you’d find in a mosh pit. This is the sort of LP that’ll give you a hoarse voice from shouting along and a sore elbow from air-fiddlin’.

Love it.

AnnaF89,

I heard this via my friend who lives in Canada, and I have just completely fallen in love with Les Cowboys Fringant! My personal favourite is Plus Rien. J'adore!

About Les Cowboys Fringants

Bassist Jérôme Dupras, drummer Dominique Lebeau, multi-instrumentalist Marie-Annick Lépine, guitarist Jean-François Pauzé, and vocalist Karl Tremblay formed Les Cowboys Fringants ("the Frisky Cowboys") in the Montreal suburb of Repentigny. Steeped in traditional Quebec folk and politically charged, they're just as much a modern rock band, and they've built a reputation as a major live draw with a fan base that extends to Switzerland and France. Their releases include the albums Motel Capri (2000), Break Syndical (2002), La Grand Messe (2004), L'Expédition (2008), and Que Du Vent (2011), as well as the live DVD En Concert au Centre Bell. ~ Andy Kellman
