Efrim Manuel Menuck High Gospel on 180g LP + CD + Limited Edition Poster
With his first solo record, High Gospel, Efrim Manuel Menuck (co-founder of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion) delivers a powerful and personal album that serves as an ode to his adopted Montreal hometown (where he has now lived for two decades), the passing of great friends (Vic Chesnutt, Emma) and new fatherhood.
Entirely self-produced and tracked at various Montreal locations, the album offers a confident, focused, humble and enveloping song cycle. Features drummer David Payant (SMZ, Vic Chesnutt Band), violinist Jessica Moss (SMZ, Carla Bozulich, Vic Chesnutt Band), and vocalist Katie Moore as guest players. 180g LP includes CD and limited edition poster.
