An April March - Adiago (Promo)



A beautiful, but largely unknown Toronto outfit which released 2 amazing discs in the early 90's. Now defunct, they have managed to capture some attention with their mesmerising sound which flutters from The Cocteau Twins to Curve, with other brilliant shoegazer bits thrown in the mix for good measure. An April March did manage to get onto the CFNY 'New Music Search' CD, which featured new artists from the Toronto area, be it a battle of the bands type of thing. This did give them some exposure in the Toronto area, but not enough worldwide. I do believe they would have caught on a little more given their sound at the time, and given the craze that was affluent in the UK and Europe with the likes of MBV and Ride ect. This disc is VERY scarce, and is limited to ONLY 600. If you found one, good for you, if not, well.. good luck! Here's a chance to hear something you may not have heard if you own one of their releases, and a few sparkling gems in the likes of 'This is...' and 'We Were Never Attached (Detached Mix)'. If you like these guys, please source out more and buy it, god knows they deserve some resurgence!





Track 1, We Were Never Attached

Track 2, Summers Gone

Track 3, Let Everyone Down

Track 4, My Reverie (I Can Feel)

Track 5, Of Leaves And Sweetness

Track 6, This Is...

Track 7, We Were Never Attached (Detached Mix)

Sad to say they aren't.. they broke up in 1999.

I'm really jazzed that you put this cd up. I was kinda in my nothing but industrial and experimental phase when Bedazzled was still around. Playing catch up has been expensive to say the least!

Is there any chance this and seefeel can be re-upped? They both seem to have corrupted tracks.

Thank you again, and keep on keepin on. I really dig the blog!

Hi, glad you like it :)

Which tracks are problematic? I'll double check to make sure my rips didn't bugger up before I send em back up.

Yeah dreamwave, it seems that some of the songs can't be opened with the pass...
It does work for three or four of them but not for the others.
Anymway, if you can deal with this, GO AHEAD, cos I would love to ear this entire album...
Thanks for everything!!!
