Picastro is a decade-strong Toronto-based project, built around the songwriting of Liz Hysen. Through lineup changes, the band has maintained a soft, sleepy tone in its sparse and experimental indie rock. Unconventional folk, noise, and rock elements all find their way into the songs on record, while here, Liz performs solo, stripping them down to their barest core to expose the simple, beautiful nature of her music.
Featured song: “Mountain Relief”
