GAMIQ nomination & review of Meridians by EtherREAL

thisquietarmy's album Aftermath was nominated for 'Best experimental album of the year' by the GAMIQ (Gala Alternatif de la Musique Indépendante du Québec). The nominees were revealed last wednesday and the winner will be determined by a specialized jury and will be announced at the gala on November 14th.

I'm not taking this seriously, of course. However, one thing is certain: the nominees were voted by the local press, media, record stores, labels, promoters, etc. So it's definitely cool to have gotten noticed by the "industry" and appear in that list. I'm up against fellow friends & colleagues Menace Ruine, Black Feelings, Grimes, Millimetrik & K.A.N.T.N.A.G.A.N.O., whom I've all crossed paths with...

On another note, Fabrice Allard of EtherREAL, a reputed french webzine, seized the essence of the Meridians EP w/ Scott Cortez and wrote an excellent review in French. Always glad to read one of his reviews.

I've just played 3 shows this week, I'll be writing about these shortly in another entry...
