“Terre Des Hommes” is the sound of riding into the sunset on horseback. The jangly, Spaghetti Western-indebted guitar lines have that dusty, well-worn feel, and Jonathan’s vocals compliment those tones with an airy, sophisticated allure.
Jonathan Personne is the solo project of Jonathan Robert, also known as the author, singer and composer of Montreal’s band Corridor, as well as being known for his works in visual arts and animated video. Inspired by the idea of the potential end of the world, his debut album Histoire Naturelle (2019), revealed a collage of songs, recordings, and experimentations at the confluence of desert dream pop, western spaghetti rock, and jangle pop. Personne’s guitar-driven second record Disparitions (2020) looks to gracefully blur eras of music, from 60s psychedelia to wiry 80s post-punk and jangle-pop.
