One of Canada’s most thought-provoking songwriters announces the upcoming release of her fourth and most ambitious album to date.
Moving Parts is an arresting collection of moody temperament and songs about human troubles.

The full-length effort from Gianna Lauren reunites the beloved band from the critically acclaimed On Personhood for a compelling performance and sinister tales of death, wounded souls, broken bridges, and burnt out feelings.

Gianna will be hitting the road with Ottawa’s Pony Girl in a few weeks across Quebec and Atlantic Canada. More release dates to come, including dates in Ontario, shortly.

Seeking the charm of impossibilities, Dan explored a small handful of vintage synthesizers, studied the 16th Century counterpoint of Palestrina, and spent a considerable amount of time in the Yucca Valley Desert, sharpening his lyrics along the spines of arid mountain chains. The result is a narcotic buoyancy for unnerving times. Five songs and five ambient pieces that flow into each other as naturally as circadian rhythms.

Goldman invited the Penderecki String Quartet as well as some of Toronto’s brightest lights to contribute their talents. Daniela Gesundheit (Snowblink, Owen Pallett, Zammuto) compliments Dan’s baritone voice on several duets and is also heavily-hauntingly featured on the ambient tracks.

The record was produced intermittently over the course of two years, in between Snowblink tours, in conjunction with producer, David Travers-Smith, in Toronto.
