Molly Sweeney: Gold Rings and Fur Pelts

One of the most compelling new voices to emerge from the Montreal music scene, singer-songwriter Molly Sweeney's debut album Gold Rings and Fur Pelts features nine songs that conjure up an elemental world of longing, passion, and poetry in a classic concept-album format. From a journey foiled by fate to a poignant French chanson of faithless love, these folk-infused torch songs explore the dark side of rapture, showcasing her sultry, dramatic vocals and enigmatic lyrics.
A regular on the Montreal circuit, Molly has shared the stage with a diverse slate of musicians including White Magic, Elfin Saddle, Josephine Foster, Scout Niblett, MV and EE, Simon Finn, Matana Roberts and Sally Seltmann, and performs with Sam Shalabi's Land of Kush both onstage and on their critically acclaimed 2009 release Against the Day and 2010 release Monogamy.
