One of our all-time favourite artists and extended Circus Company member The Mole returns to the
label for a proper presentation of his album The River Widens. Originally a limited, cassette-only
release via fellow Canadian Eddie C’s Red Motorbike, we are proud to offer this album in its full glory
for the first time on all formats.
Never one to shy away from synth deep dives, or raw sample flip collaging, this collection of 21 works
checks all the boxes. Ambient trippers to straight up neck-snapping instrumental beats. Not forgetting
tastes of the more uptempo, highly-assured and hypnotic dance floor feels the world has come to love
The Mole for. Moments of casual chillin are interspersed with effortless, emotive angles, some evoking
the charm of his Little Sunshine release for us in 2017.

X-pert Profat opens the set with sly statements that give way to relaxed and subtle keys over gentle,
midtempo rhythms. Things switch up nicely into easy, Northwest Coast boogie-meets-beatdown feels
inBreak For Ma, followed by a solid array of almost Jaylib-schooled boom bap twists, like the aptly-titled
Drums 2002 and Jo Barker. Ambient cuts like AR Dayand New Family offer a refreshing tap of the
brakes, setting the scene for the gorgeous, Jarre-esque Weak Stranger. We also get treated
to Repepepater’s nod to Detroit house, urban-mode Balearic feels on They Work For Mr. O, and sneak
attack lo-fi future funk in the form of UFOs Over Egypt, with Montreal co-pilot Cristobal on a wild
shisha-lit vox narrative, earlier versions of which have blessed many of our label comrades’ DJ sets,
from Dave Aju to Vincent Lemieux.
The River Widens expands beautifully on the breadth of unique musical directions The Mole is capable
of taking us in, now spread across fresh 2x12” vinyl and available digitally for the first time, along with
another limited edition cassette run - we hope you enjoy the ride as much as we do! [info sheet from distr.]
