Featured in Best of 2015 by BeatRoute Magazine!

#2 in the Experimental Charts and #55 in Top 300 for CJSR 88.5 FM's Best of 2015 (Edmonton, AB)


Concrescence is the fourth album by Edmonton-based experimental trio Pigeon Breeders. This will be their first cassette. While previous releases have been formed through the parring down of one or two nights' worth of improvisations, this is the first to compile various material over a two year period. The recording captures the band playing in a variety of local spaces (including the old Mile Zero Dance Studio above The Artery); the resulting sonic gallery is their most challenging to date, and the most accurate in its presentation of the group's scope: introspective ambience, tense and spastic electroacoustic interplay, scrappy free jazz, apocalyptic free-form drone rock, and beyond… complete and blissful abandon into sound. Pick yr poison, light some incense, turn off the lights.



"If you'd like to give your sunny summer a spooky soundtrack, then we've got just the thing for you."
- Exclaim! Magazine

"Sit back, relax and let the spastic arrangements permeate you."
"Their walls of sound will overwhelm your consciousness and induce an introspective and illuminating listening experience."
- Sled Island

"… a vast emotion-evoking soundscape chock-full of noise and varied musical elements."
- Jenna Lee Williams, BeatRoute Magazine

"Pigeon Breeders’ music is emotional. It ebbs, flows and sweeps up a listener, a sonic canvas evoking powerful feelings."
- Jordyn Marcellus, Vue Weekly

"One of the more meditative crown-jewels of Edmonton’s experimental/free-improv scene."
- David Ferris, Weird Canada

"Edmonton’s kings of drift, this trio has honed in on a compelling mixture of liberally-effected guitars, assorted amplified junk and household objects, and electronics."
"One of the finest units goin’. "
- Chris Dadge (Bug Incision, Lab Coast)

"This is a record of rare skill, and rare power."
- Oliver Arditi

", messy and elegant all at the same damned time."
- New Music Michael

"… undeniably one of the most unique and distinctive experimental artists that I can think of"
- Riot In My Brain
