The Hylozoists - La Nouvelle Gauche

The cosmic and adventurous 2001 debut release from Toronto's The Hylozoists.

"From their secret lab in Seabright, NS, the Hylozoists emerge with a sumptuous slice of lush, cinematic, post-chamber pop. That this much brilliance can come from one studio has conspiracy theorists buzzing about alien/human gene splicing, musician cloning, secret societies and ties to an ancient sect of pre-Socratic Greek philosophers. The Hylozoists' mastermind and orchestrator Paul Aucoin (Hopeful Monster, Bodaga and the Heavy Blinkers) has arranged an equally cerebral and catchy collection of instrumental gems utilising a small orchestra that includes, among other instruments, a string trio, wood winds, banjo, mandolin, theremin, pedal steel, vibraphone, marimba, glockenspiel and antique keyboards." - Exclaim!
