Figure Walking - Feature Interview and Show Video
Feature Artist Interview
Tuesday night at the Casbah featured a band from Winnipeg that may have gone unnoticed. Figure Walking is the lastest incarnation of Greg MacPherson. Greg was long-listed for the Polaris Prize for his last album Fireball. With Figure Walking not only has the performance name changed, but Greg along with Drummer Rob Gardiner have taken things in a completely different and exciting direction. Their just released album "The Big Other" has already received very positives reviews including this one from Exclaim and it has been on "heavy rotation" at my place. I caught up with Greg and Rob before their show at The Casbah for a quick chat. You can check out the video above. Stick around (or FF) to videos of a couple of their songs performed at the Casbah a the end of the video.
Figure walking's album "The Big Other" is available through disintegration records
