CD Giveaway: Christine Bougie & Dafydd Hughes

Christine Bougie (guitar) and Dafydd Hughes (keys) are fixtures in the Toronto music world, well known as skilled accompanyists. They take the spotlight, playing their own work, each Monday at the Tranzac’s front room in the duo project called Angela Bower. Except, that is, for this week, when they’re moving the show to the Main Hall on Thursday. There the pair will celebrate the release of their new CD, entitled “This Is Awesome.” I’ve got a couple copies of the CD to give away. It’s pretty and the music is great, a definite keeper.

The album contains 13 instrumental pieces. The songs are mostly quiet and introspective, inviting contemplation of the listener. It’s the kind of music I will listen to when I want no obvious distractions from my own thoughts, but like to have something to listen to. These are perfect sitting and reading songs, but with definite personality and musical interest. I don’t have much in the way of instrumental music in my collection, and am glad to have this when I’m not in the mood for indie pop. Maybe you’ll feel the same way.

Yeah? If you want a copy of the CD, e-mail me at historyjenATgmailDOTcom with your name and mailing address. I’ll draw names randomly and mail out the CDs in a few days.

For more information, and to check out a couple tracks from the new album, head here.

The release show is Thursday, 4 Dec, at the Tranzac (Main Hall). Mantler opens things up, and then Christine Bougie and Dafydd Hughes share their record with us. Doors are at 8pm and the cover is $10.

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who entered. I'm mailing out CDs to the winners today!
