Montreal based three piece return to Southern Lord for their third album. With three tracks spanning 40 minutes they go the whole hog in post-rock experimentation from huge domineering heaviness to abstract and delicate. This time with guest in the form of members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra, and Jerusalem In My Heart.

9/10 Tom Customer review, 24th May 2018

Montreal's BIG | BRAVE make an incredible racket for a three piece. Recorded at Hotel2Tango, the recording space used by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and featuring contributions from Constellation Records alumni Jessica Moss and Thierry Amar, Ardor is a suitably cataclysmic sounding record.

With its repetitive riff, huge swells of feedback, primal drumming, and singer Robin Wattie's calls, "Sound" is about as huge as you can imagine. "Lull" takes the same formula but flips it on its head, with a tentative, subdued feel which eventually explodes into the closing track, the monolithic "Borer". All in all Ardor is like a palindrome - it ends the same way it begins with huge swelling riffs and pummeling drums - but the effect is truly hypnotic.
