Gogh Van Go
Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent album, Bliss Station (1997)
Solid '90s pop music with an interesting edge. This isn't one of the multitude of bands named Go Van Gogh, but is a Montreal duo with a great pop sensibility. Sandra Luciantonio's voice reminds me just a little of Katell Keineg, Natalie Merchant, and Mary Ramsey (of 10,000 Maniacs and previously John and Mary). Dan Tierney writes most of the tunes and is an excellent pop tunester. (Neile)
Recommended first album:

Highly recommended for fans of 90s pop
John Souranis—bass guitar, guitars
Some wonderfully ethereal songs, some sweet songs—this is pop compared to a lot of ecto, but much more interesting than the non-ecto mainstream. Their one cover on this collection is Lennon's "Instant Karma". "Call it romance" in particular is a great song, and the rest of the album is consistently good—from the first song, "Bed where we hide" to the last, the poignant "Kiss the ground" you know you're in the hands of great popsters.

Available in Canada
Recommended for pop fans
Heavier—or at least a little less frothy—than their debut recording, this is still pretty infectious. (Neile)
