Catherine Durand’s La pluie entre nous…

catherine-durand-la-pluie-entre-nousDark clouds haunt the landscape but if you look carefully, the falling raindrops have an electric blue aura. Montreal’s Catherine Durand delights us with a progressive folk album this week. It is her sixth and bears the title La pluie entre nous. For those familiar with Elisapie and Salomé Leclerc, this sits somewhere between the two. A very sweet voice, gentle strums, and delicate electronics sprinkle down like, well, rain. Bringing clarity to objects hidden in the mist, this is the perfect album to introduce us to the autumn season. The 10 tracks were four years in the making, and taking her time perfecting the composition has paid off in spades. Catherine Durand’s La pluie entre nous is one of the few 2016 albums worth buying in its entirety, a superb work of art.  iTunes
