I've heard "Ilsa Drown" a few times and was always like "wow, really sounds like Sigur Rós" and now I see it's Jónsi; well, that explains it. :D Anyway, listening to more of their songs right now. Nice stuff!
I enjoyed a very cool show by Death Vessel opening for Shearwater at The Horseshoe in Toronto. I took some pics and wrote some words: http://www.oneintenwords.com/2014/04/death-vessel-at-horseshoe_15.html
It's hard to imagine a dude is singing these tracks  I still cant grasp the image of this man singing the tracks. Like when i looked up i was taken to see a man and not a woman. So i looked them on wiki lol
I believe one should not address him as "Joel". It's pronounced "jo-EL". Not that this matters. He is one astonishing songwriter. Singer. Guitarist. Unbelievable.
I saw him solo and was looking around for the band he said he didn't bring, this time. So what was I hearing?? I thought at first he was playing against tape. No, it was all him. So many sound, such big, beautiful sound that transports one to an ancient and distant land.

Saw him at a Jose Gonzalez concert last night at Shephards Bush Empire in London. I've never heard of him before but I was really impressed. When he came back on to collect some stuff from the stage I asked him what his name was (as me and friends were right at the front) and he was nice enough to come over and tell me.
I swear if I wasn't that close and could see his stubble I would reckon he wa
I really liked them, but I never bothered reading any information on the band. Anyways, with big expectatios I went to see Death Vessel at this year's Primavera Sound festival, and it turned out it was fronted by a person of the opposite gender that I thought. It's actually a HE. What a fantastic voice! (Uhm and, well, only Joel Thibodeau was performing when I saw them.)
