Canadian reins supreme with new video

Eric Chenaux "Poor Time" from Constellation Records on Vimeo.

Hold on to your horses! Canadian experimentalist and mane man Eric Chenaux has just released the video for ‘Poor Time’, directed by Eric Cazdyn, taken from his fifth album for Constellation Skullsplitter. Saddle up and enjoy!

Since his emergence in the late 90s Chenaux has made a name for himself among the DIY community, taking on the task of putting together his latest album almost single-handedly. Skullsplitter, which uses the same limited instrumentation as 2012’s Guitar and Voice, was released back in February. Reviewing for tQ, Oobah Butler described it as a “gorgeous collection deserving of great respect” - read that review in full here. Chenaux will be visiting the UK for a run of shows in May and you can check all of the dates below.
