Formed in 2010 as a solo project, Hull, Quebec’s Scattered Clouds expanded into a baroque exploration of the sinister. Lurching with brooding intensity, the music of Scattered Clouds is as opaque and sinister as the found footage for their video “Enchanteresse.” Dark, menacing passages give way to squalls of anarchic zeal, while Philippe Charbonneau’s somber words illustrate a world of mystery and danger. Scattered Clouds play the Sunday (August 30) afternoon of Camp Wavelength on Toronto Island

I’m really not sure what to expect when I show up to meet Anna Mayberry at the Holy Oak one sunny afternoon. A punk screamer or a winsome mewler? An outspoken force or shy recluse? Turns out the incredibly versatile musician, who throws considerable weight behind both noise-rockers HSY and experimental folkies Anamai, has as many shades as a Pantone book. As thoughtful as she is thought provoking, her complexity is abundantly evident in the music she creates.
