Child Actress - Ancestor Worship (2023)

We're counting this tape as a Calgary thing even though Rena Kozak is based in Montreal these days - at least in part since it's a release on local label Red Spade Records (who also put out a Child Actress 7" lathe in 2019). 

This self-produced tape definite benefits from Kozak's extensive experience in mixing and sound engineering - and the song writing is pretty great as well, landing somewhere between dream pop and power pop (her live show definitely pulls towards the latter).  The very excellent "Always Moving" is a standout here.

Get it the download via the Child Actress bandcamp - there are tapes and LPs out there somewhere as well, but we can't seem to find 'em online.
