Carpet of Horses – Red Paper Flames LP

The first full-length LP from my project Carpet of Horses was released this past November 15th (2016) via our very own, brand new record label: Montsou Records.


Red Paper Flames is a nine-song collection that I wrote in Italy following the birth of my first child. Recording took place over a one year period in Berlin and Toronto, along with some remote recordings out of Montreal and Tel Aviv.

The record was produced and engineered by yours truly, with some additional engineering by my pals A. David MacKinnon at 6 Nassau (Toronto) and Ray Cammaert at The Tinshop (Toronto). Sadly, both studios no longer exist, but their ghosts most definitely live on.

The album was mixed in detailed perfection by A. David MacKinnon at 6 Nassau, and mastered by the wizard himself, Andy Magoffin, at the legendary House of Miracles.

Contributing musicians include Ray Cammaert (Pink Moth), Michael Feuerstack, Nili Fink, Nathan Lawr (Minotaurs), A. David MacKinnon, Chryssa Voulgari & Christopher Williams.

The gorgeous, silk-screened artwork was made by my lovely and talented wife Greta Riondato.

Couldn’t be more proud of this, so please do give it a listen if you can. Some of the tunes can be streamed below:
