A 15-minute journey that threatens to redefine the word ‘epic,’ this post-rock masterpiece from Canadian musician Alex Henry Foster is a sweeping beast that bursts at the seams with moving guitar moments.
Foster’s agitated spoken-word delivery is punctuated with stabbing, distortion-coated rhythms and atmospheric leads that perfectly accompany the song’s thrill-ride of a music video. With all of the world’s current horrors, this is a song you can absolutely get lost in. (JM)
Supported by Quebec’s Palmarès ADISQ and Canada’s established Canadian Musician Magazine, Your Favorite Enemies will be going live this coming Sunday to celebrate the early days of the band and their 15 years DIY ethos.
“A fine example to follow for anyone feeling stagnant out there…” – Canadian Musician
“[…] to present the book “The Evidence of Things Unseen” that is supporting “The Early Days” and documenting the 3 first years of the band” – Palmarès ADISQ
The short film tour de force, inspired by the likes of David Lynch, has been produced and written by Alex Henry Foster’s longtime collaborator, French filmmaker Jessie Nottola (Tinariwen, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Arthur H), after receiving carte blanche from Foster who wanted to experience the bewilderment of losing control on his work’s narrative and explore the freedom that comes with pure creative abandonment.
“The Hunter (By the Seaside Window) emerged from a 30-minute jam of a noisy, out-of-breath and tortured kind of dark, spiritual, emotive, and redemptive sonic journey. It reflects on the symbiotic notion of inner struggles feeding the growing illness of the relationship between the different entities we kept on feeding within oneself, as a sort of an out-of-step addiction to pain and resignation, but also to hopelessness and mercy, as much as to salvation and grace. The cycle only ends once we decide to let go, whatever it may mean for anyone’s beliefs… as we are both the hunter and the prey” – Alex Henry Foster
As a support to his upcoming short film release for the song “The Hunter (By the Seaside Window)”, Alex Henry Foster will Live Broadcast a short interview & performance of the song from his Studio / Church on Sunday (March 22) at 9:00AM (Eastern Time)
We believe people need this profound peace which music can bring. It’s more than entertainment, it’s something we all need as much as Alex needed it following the passing of his father. This is exactly the soul of Alex’s album and we could testify how people related to it since its release.
Following a sold-out premiere in Paris on March 13 with video producer Jessie Nottola, who’s well-known for his work with post-punk French pioneer Bertrand Cantat, as well as Amadou & Mariam and Tiken Jah Fakoly, here is a teaser of the 15-minute short film for the mammoth-of-a-song “The Hunter (By The Seaside Window)”, off his top-charting album “Windows in the Sky”. (Video release on March 27, 2020.)
“The hunter is the light, the prey is the darkness falling in the hands of a new morning. You feel the same, but everything is different somehow. You stand up. You hear the sound of a gun that has been fired. The ghosts that kept on haunting you are waiting outside for your daily anguish to begin. It’s hard to breathe. The fight against yourself is one that is as bright as the dawn. You’re breathing in, you’re breathing out… and just like that, everything starts once again.” -Alex
Not only Alex Henry Foster’ Reflecting Lights in Howling Sky” is announced by the most important German media for alternative music, Visions Magazine, but we are proud to announce that Visions will be supporting the whole summer tour.

Total Gipsy nous présente son premier vidéoclip pour la chanson “L’immatériel”.
Musicalement, “L’immatériel” est une pièce hypnotique, probablement une des plus fragiles de “Digital & Analogue”, paisible dans ses ambiances orchestrales à la Brian Eno et troublante par l’ajout du son industriel à la KMFDM.
Cette dualité définit fortement l’album de TG et on la retrouve également dans le vidéoclip alors que Loïc prend conscience du monde dans lequel il évolue et qu’il fait face à la désillusion à travers des bribes de lueurs d’espoir qu’il croit voir. L’adolescent réalise rapidement que ce n’est pas en cherchant la faveur des hommes qu’il trouvera une paix qui ne tarira jamais.
