Biography

PLASTER are back with a blast! Following their 2005 ADISQ awarded debut, First Aid Kit,
The bombastic outfit is set to release its upcoming album Let It All Out, May 15 on Vega
Musique.
Orchestrated by musical prodigies Jean-Phi Goncalves on Drums (Beast, Ariane Moffatt),
Alex McMahon on Keys (Yann Perreau, Ariane Moffatt) and François Plante on Bass
(Afrodizz, Dumas), PLASTER’s music is a genuine force to be reckoned with. Pulling a mash
of pure rock’n’roll attitude with a juicy chunk of electronica, the resulting sound is stacked
with infectious samples and tempos, and one too many cocktails to crank it up a notch.
Inspired by peers Amon Tobin, Herbalizer, JazzaNova, Cinématic Orchestra and Medeski
Martin & Wood to name a few, PLASTER could be the biting rock answer to your casual
electronic hipster. Here, the samplers, multi-effects and of course real instruments are
tortured to offer ultimate stimuli and command these hips to get moving, period.
As a journalist once put it: “Plaster’s music will make you wanna get plastered”
In that sense, Let It All Out sounds like First Aid Kit gone wild. The sophomore outing is a
slick collection of booming tracks pursuing the same crazy vibe heard on the first LP,
setting the tone quite simple and clear: You are all in for a par-tay!
A bit of history…
PLASTER has done great impression at the 2004, 2005 and 2006 Montreal Jazz Festival
playing to captive and dancing audiences of 3K+, and they will repeat this experience in
2006. Quebec City Summer Festival in summer 2006 allowed the band to gain recognition
in the electro music scene. In 2007, they presented a showcase to SXSW in Austin and
were selected for an M for Montreal showcase featured in Los Angeles (California)
