A new acoustic improvising trio from pianist Róisín Adams, double bassist Lyle Hopkins and drummer Kevin Romain. Grooves bubble up from droning pools, splinter, fracture, hobble along through gently shifting landscapes. Complex, muted textures take centre stage viscerally in the absence of amplified sound. A trio of breathtaking intuition and momentum.

Magic realism meets jazz-inflected Indie Pop: Vancouver’s Moondle navigate dreamy sonic labyrinths, enchanting libraries of real and made-up languages, and lush, imaginative musical interplay. At turns wistful and transcendent, Moondle opens the mind and uplifts the soul. Formed in late 2014 after its members met studying jazz at Capilano University, the members of Moondle have spent their creative energies writing and performing songs that are at first accessible and simple in form, while still traversing sounds and harmonies that push the boundaries of their art. They have since released their self-titled debut album (2018), performed twice at the Vancouver International Jazz Fest, and have been lucky to be a part of the Vancouver alternative music scene, playing in bars, collective studio spaces, parking garages, and other makeshift venues.
