Alaclair Ensemble Launches “Toute Est Impossible”

It certainly wasn’t like any other Canada Day party in town, as hip-hop group Alaclair Ensemble took advantage of the day’s symbolic value to launch their latest album, Toute Est Impossible, to a packed room at Le Cercle in the lower town.  For those of you unfamiliar with Alaclair Ensemble’s concept, they were featured in a previous issue of Life in Québec Magazine… and boy does their new album keep blazing new ground.

Coming back with more bite and all the explosive on-stage energy that the band’s fans have come to expect, Alaclair Ensemble seems more comfortable than ever with the new album’s pieces, as their style ranges from almost (almost) melodic ballads to high-speed machine-gun lyrics that make you wish they’d never slow down.  All this wrapped in their trademark cloak of the daring and absurd – at one point, frontman Robert Nelson came out dressed as Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II and proceeded to body surf the unchained crowds rocking Le Cercle’s floor.  Happy Canada Day indeed.

True to their musical philosophy, their newest album is freely available from the group’s website.  Their particular brand of hip-hop sound might not be for the faint of heart, and this particular album does seem a little more heavy-handed than their previous work.  But hey – it’s free, so give it a listen and decide for yourselves.
