Video #65 of 1000 – Pugs and Crows – Fantastic Pictures. Recorded live at the 9th Annual “In The House” Festival on June 2, 2012 in HD (1080p on XA10). I put the -10db pad on the mic by mistake, so turn this one up a bit!

The Pugs and Crows are an instrumental band that performs original music that evokes a shifting range of sonic colours and ambient soundscapes. The ensemble’s unique cinematic sound is due in part to the unusual instrumentation of violin, double bass, guitar, piano, and drums.

The band is best experienced within a quiet and focused listening setting (like this one) where the dynamic subtleties of their music can be appreciated, but there is also enough intensity in their performances to leave a lasting impression in a loud bar or club.
