BIG | BRAVE prep collab album with The Body; guitarist Mathieu Ball lists his top 10 LPs of 2020

Having last released the very good A Gaze Among Them in 2019, Montreal post-metal band BIG | BRAVE recently revealed that they finished up work on a collaborative album with The Body. "Had been talking about making a record with these lads for a while," BIG | BRAVE wrote when they posted the above picture. "With the indispensable coconspirator [Seth Manchester, co-operator of Rhode Island's Machines With Magnets studio], we finally did! Can’t wait to share what we’ve done."
