Release date: October 7, 2016
Sun Belt’s collaborative work of fiction is a genre-defying chronicle of a tar sands company town. Drawing from an array of invented sources such as journals, film transcripts, environmental studies and police reports, Cabalcor charts the rise and fall of a mythical boomtown that, within the span of a century, becomes a desert wasteland.
The multi-layered narrative is woven together by an extraordinary blend of texts, both black and white and colour images, and a full downloadable album of Sun Belt’s quietly surreal, dusty music.

WINNER OF THE 2011 JUNO AWARD FOR INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR
Continent & Western–simultaneously more experimental and more accessible than previous Fond of Tigers releases–shows the band honing its unique blend of avant-garde textures and post-rock structures while expanding its range to include vocals and additional members. Toronto’s SandroPerri (Constellation Records) lends vocals and lyrics to “Vitamin Meathawk”, while Swedish experimenter Mats Gustafsson brings his intense saxophone and electronics push to “Grandad”.
“The moments of serenity and tradition spliced into collages of chaos and urgency are as captivating as they are conflicting and certainly better heard than read. " - Herohill.com
A beautiful double 12" 45rpm marbled vinyl package with insert pages, this album is an immersive mix of heartfelt singer-songwriter roots and deeply exploratory sonic textures.
