Hunter-Gatherer Psych-Pop Magic on CJSW

Calgary has seen many bands come and go, but for many, there remains a special place on our iTunes playlist for psych-pop experimenters Hunter-Gatherer.

Taking the swirling cacophony of Animal Collective and channeling it through the fuzz of early-90's guitar pop, Hunter-Gatherer quickly amassed a devoted following, playing Sled Island and other high-profile gigs, before members went on to other projects (including The Cable-Knits, an outfit with a similar sound). On their sole release, a four song cassette from 2009, the band's pairing of dreamy vocals and spiky guitars laid the groundwork, along with Braids and Women, for many of Calgary's young indie bands (Gretchen, Faux Fur, et al). You might have to "hunt" for their tape, but once you find it, I "gather" you'll fall in love.
