Bran Van 3000
Long before music writers were frothing over Arcade Fire’s Montreal, Bran Van was demonstrating their hometown’s cosmopolitan influences---2001’s Discosis was equally at home in a neighbourhood bar as it was a soundtrack for champagne on the Riviera. Then the band disappeared, until head-Vanner James Di Salvio rounded up the old collective for Rosé. Fans will instantly recognize BV3’s iconic sound and superbly produced mix-up of hip-hop, Latin, French pop, reggae and disco. Highlights include a dance remake of The Spinners’ “Call Me,” showcasing Sara Johnston’s gorgeous pipes and a darker, gritty ode to Quebec music producer Tony Roman.
