Not one but THREE experimental acts from out of town are performing with locals Pigeon Breeders + Smokey.
They are all performing at this year’s Sled Island music festival in Calgary, AB.

Alder & Ash (Montreal) * Edmonton debut

Alder & Ash is a counterpoint of two extremes. The music lies in stillness, introversion, and penitence. It lies in violence, cacophony, and angst. Alder & Ash plays solo cello with loop pedal to create improvised minimal classical music, with influence of doom metal, ambient, post-rock and noise.

Alder & Ash recently performed a European tour with Calgary’s FOONYAP.

Sled Island’s FFO: Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Chelsea Wolfe, Swans

Touching God (Lethbridge, AB) * Edmonton debut

New electronic noise rock project from members of Advertisement and An Ant And An Atom.

Sled Island’s FFO: Suicide, Lightning Bolt, Death Grips

Redress (Calgary)

“We believe in the terror of love, and its ability to transfigure eternally.”
Featuring members of Jung People, Not I, Sigil, and The Oceania Tenor.

Sled Island’s FFO: Tim Hecker, Kranky Records

Pigeon Breeders + Smokey

Pigeon Breeders were formed in 2011 by Will Scott, Myles Bartel and Tyler Harland. Following Tyler’s departure from Edmonton to Halifax in 2016, the band has been exploring the project as a duo as well as with guest collaborators. They are happy to be joined by frequent collaborator Smokey (Smokey & The Feelings, Field & Stream, Boy Church).
