Karkwa's "Le volume du vent", among the nominees for best Francophone album, has already won 4 Félix in 2008. I cannot be more happy to know that they will at least get more exposure throughout Canada with this nomination. If you grew up listening to prog-rock, then, like me, you have noticed how keenly this amazingly talented band has woven into their music some noticeable influences, yet never failed to achieve a unique sound. Here is an excerpt.
