Video: Cold Specks – “Hector”

Cold Specks HectorIt all began with a lone a cappella cover, but future promise has been building along with bigger, fleshed-out arrangements behind Al Spx ever since. Last month we caught the best live incarnation of Cold Specks yet performing Hoxton Hall’s “Winter Solstice,” and now comes another excellent take from the session. Start with the previous clip, for sure, but if it leaves you wanting more, chase it down with “Hector” above.

Meanwhile, Cold Specks’ debut LP, I Predict A Graceful Explosion, just landed on the shortlist for Canada’s Polaris Music Prize. Before the winner is announced, she’s hitting the road:
