Nathanael Larochette Canada has a quiet but rich history of bands performing what I can only describe as instrumental post chamber indie prog, and with Crossworlds, Joshua Van Tassel has cemented his place alongside the likes of Bell Orchestre, Torngat, Ferriswheel, Esmerine, Do Make Say Think and Godspeed You! Black Emperor among others. Looking forward to diving into the story behind the music! Favorite track: Chapter 2: The Old Woman.
