Lucid 44 (2013)

Calgary, Alberta

Self-described as "sad bastard death folk," Calgary's Lucid 44 has been tucked away quietly making the kind of moody, layered slow-burners that just seem to burrow their way deep down inside the listener and just radiate, like the embers at the tail end of a campfire. The brainchild of Leslie Mark Overland, Lucid 44's quiet tension hammers home the notion that while maybe it won't all be okay, that's sometimes alright.
