Playing tracks by
Michiel Vanden Broecke and Chantal Acda.
Chantal Acda (b. 1978) has worked under the Sleepingdog moniker since 2006, making three affectionately received albums; 'Naked In A Clean Bed' (2006), Polar Life (2008) and, most recently, ‘With Our Heads in the Clouds and Our Hearts in the Fields’ (2010), in which she worked closely with Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid, A Winged Victory For The Sullen). At the same time, she was a constant on-stage presence with Isbells and is one-half of True Bypass, her duo with Craig Ward.
On her latest record, Acda worked with Peter Broderick, cellist Gyda Valtysdottir (múm). Shahzad Ismaily stumbled into this picture by chance, but when Chantal and he found themselves in the same room they formed an instant rapport.
Nils Frahm, who played all over the record, also took on the role of producer.
In this live session she played with Gaetan Vandewoude (Isbells), Christophe Vandewoude (Marble Sounds), Jo Jacobs (De Held)
