When the current song has ended you'll see it here
Outside of Del Bel, Lisa Conway is L CON, her sort of eponymous-titled solo effort that displays her prowess in crafting compositions equally as compelling as those of the band she croons for.
Under the moniker, she's released two EPs so far: The Ballad Project and its reinterpreted counterpart, The Ballads Reimagined, released a year later.
Recently on Facebook, Del Bel shared a live medley of the songs "Tangled" and "In Honour Of," recorded three years ago in Sackville, New Brunswick for Sappyfest. So no, it's not new, but in light of their post and discovery being recent, I'd say it constitutes as new-ish.
On this recording, the tracks project a far more minimal approach than the already stripped-back versions heard on The Ballads Reimagined. Gone are the echoing vocals and atmospheric ambiance of "Tangled," and gone are the ticking programmed drum beats and string section of "In Honour Of."
Instead, it's Conway's chilling voice that's dominant, singing the lyrics with a little less drawl, assisted only by plodded notes being quietly plucked in the background by Del Bel composer Tyler Belluz. Even the transitions between the tunes are passive, with a brief measure -- three seconds to be exact -- that silently hints at the change.
It's all very subtle and little goes on here, which is fine because there's no need for orchestrated extravagance. Conway's tantalizing vibrato and Belluz's shy accompaniment is more than enough to command the attention of a room.
