"Mourning Coup Review- Light House"

Mourning Coup’s yet to be released Light House is a private mystery; intrigue leading unto intimacy. From it’s intricate, precious packaging (that’s fabric and three types of paper you see there) to the tethered mix of single-mic’d vocals, samples, drums, and keyboards, there is a prevailing sense of blurred closeness. Deservedly so, as I had to beg Chandra Melting Tallow, the creative force behind Mourning Coup, to send me a copy (1 of 5) having convinced her that ideas trump all and therefore her rough recordings will suffice. Mourning Coup will certainly join the ranks of master Canadian etherealites like Katie Stelmanis with her flowing, ghostly echoes; calls from a reality she’s transcended and tucked between our collective consciousness. Chandra returns from India in 2010 and we will all wait patiently. - Weird Canada

Chandra Melting Tallow began whispering into the mouth of the spirit world in the Fall of 2008 in Montreal, Quebec. In those ecstatic moments a Mourning Coup began to unravel its mysteries.
Crafted with notions of music being a chord between the physical and spirit world from her Blackfoot upbringing, her work is coloured by a lifelong attraction to classical requiems, doo wop and r&b. The result is haunting, with heavy undertones of pop.
Mourning Coup live performances are collaborative and often involve Britton Proulx of Seizure Salad, FOONYAP of Woodpidgeon and FOONYAP and the Roar, Gabrielle Girard Charest and Mona Varichon of Montreal's Teen Sleuth among many others.
