BRASSTRONAUT // MOUNT CHIMAERA
Unfamiliar // 2010
The band spent early 2009 in Banff, Alberta recording their full-length debut as part of a Winter Music Creative Residency at the Banff Centre. After postponing the release date of September 23, they revamped and re-recorded some of the songs in private studios in Vancouver and finally released Mount Chimaera on March 2, 2010. Mount Chimaera received critical acclaim including a SOCAN Echo Prize for Canadian song of the year, a Polaris Prize long-listing, and chart-topping singles on The Hype Machine.
