Phèdre is taking on the Canadian government in their “Ancient Nouveau” video. It's both a castigation of the Canadian government's horrendous treatment of the First Nations and a celebration of Chief Spence of the Attawapiskat First Nation, whose hunger strike earlier this year drew massive attention to the Idle No More movement. The culture she's fighting for is present here, in rituals and colorful ceremonies that seem like a powerful response to the government's policies, cast as horned demons tearing the land apart. Golden Age is out October 1st on Daps Records.
