Saved By Radio’s Rae Spoon is a transgendered indie electronic musician who lives in Montreal.
I Can’t Keep All Of Our Secrets is Rae’s sixth full-length release. A pop/electronic album about the complexity of grief, it focuses on a particular experience of loss. Rae wrote the album in the wake of a friend’s sudden death. With palpable emotion, the songs map the topography of loss and of attachment that extends beyond death.
Musically, I Can’t Keep All Of Our Secrets is Rae’s most electronic album to date and marks progress in a journey that pulled Rae towards rock/electronic music. Using heavily programmed production, analog synths and distorted electric guitars, Rae has moved beyond experimenting to establishing their own style in the genre. The album features computer programming and beats by Lynne T (Montreal’s Lesbians on Ecstasy) and Berlin’s Alexandre Decoupigny. It was co-produced by Lorrie Matheson in Calgary, Alberta.
Rae has toured extensively over the past ten years in Canada as well as internationally. Through touring, they have managed to build a strong grassroots following. Rae was longlisted for Polaris Music Prize in 2008 (superioryouareinferior) as well as nominated for two CBC Radio 3 Bucky Awards in 2010.
