Mt. Chimaera, the debut album of Vancouver band Brasstronaut can be envisioned as the mythological beast of its title.
This record skillfully unifies genres as various as pop, electronica, klezmer, and jazz, just as the chimaera is composed of parts from a lion, goat
And they both breathe fire.
Recorded at The Banff Centre, in the Rocky Mountains, and mixed/produced in home studios in Vancouver, Oberlin, Ohio, and New York.
Mt. Chimaera is the first full-length release by Brasstronaut’s definitive six-piece line-up.
