20:00 | Shilpa Ray is, through no fault of her own, one of our unsung great artists. Having made her bones with the gothic Sturm und Drang of Beat The Devil and moving forward to the blues erosion of "...and The Happy Hookers" Shilpa Ray has been, armed only with an incomparable voice and harmonium haunted by the ghosts of dead lovers, perpetually crying in the wind, hoisting both middle fingers in the general direction of god. It's not a life a wise man would choose. Shilpa Ray kicks against the pricks but the pricks keep coming. But, again, what can you do?
20:00 | Currently based in Belgium, Dutch-born Chantal Acda has worked under the Sleepingdog moniker since 2006, making three acclaimed albums and touring extensively both in Europe and North America. After recording 'Let Your Hands Be My Guide' Chantal instantly knew that the bond that she experienced with Peter Broderick and Shahzad Ismaily was one to last for a lifetime. So it was compulsive to turn to them again for her new album 'The Sparkle In Our Flaws', which she had written in-between touring on the first album, and on which she wanted to further explore the musical freedom she felt while playing with them. Besides Peter and Shahzad, you will also hear contributions from Valgeir Sigurdsson, Heather Woods Broderick, Niels Van Heertum and Eric Thielemans. 'The Sparkle In Our Flaws' will be Chantal Acda's first release on the Glitterhouse label and will be out on September 18th, 2015.
