Inhabitants continue to push forward into new sonic territory with "A Vacant Lot", their third full-length on Drip Audio. Spacious and expressive, the new album explores the dynamic relationship between chaos and form through experimental sound, intuitive group interplay and instrumental composition. There is new diversity in the music; rich textured landscapes augmented by electronics and feedback are contrasted with moments of intimate acoustic minimalism. A reflective mood pervades the new landscape Inhabitants occupy on A Vacant Lot, their improvisations and compositions permeated with an uncommon, yet alluring lyricism.

Formed in 2004, Vancouver's Inhabitants have ascended to become one of Canada's most prominent creative music ensembles. In 2009, Inhabitants were nominated for a Juno Award for 'Instrumental Album of the Year', a National Jazz Award for 'Electric Group of the Year' and a Western Canadian Music Award for 'Instrumental Recording of the Year'! Their singular approach defies genre, melding jazz, rock, noise and free improvisation with new perspective. Trumpeter JP Carter, guitarist Dave Sikula, bassist Pete Schmitt and drummer Skye Brooks find a rare cohesiveness in Inhabitants, cultivated from years of musical collaboration in groups like Fond of Tigers, Copilots, Carsick, DarkBlueWorld, The NOW Orchestra and Tony Wilson's 6tet.

Press:

"...an unpredictable affair, and that's what makes it so good." - Foxy Digitalis

"...indescribably rich and odd..." - Pop Matters

"...displays music chops, a sense of fun, and a deep connection to the droning soundscapes they create." - Music Emissions

"...exceptional music that draws together textured improvisation and striking melodies." - Signal to Noise

"...evoking dreams, undersea life, and, musically, perhaps, the more ethereal offerings of the German label ECM or the chilly, reflective electro-jazz of the Norwegian group Supersilent." - The Georgia Straight

"...even while the music sounds contemporary, with the swirl of styles — jazz, electronic, drums and bass, metal, noise — it comes out as post-modern improvisation with a poetic sense of its own." - The Squid's Ear

"...a quite coherent and unique musical vision." - Free Jazz

"A kick ass album." - Left Hip

"...an unpredictable affair, and that's what makes it so good." - Foxy Digitalis

"Inhabitants craft a wicked brew, blending cathartic noise, solid rhythmic patterns and deft melodic passages." - Exclaim!

"It's one of those CDs you rediscover each time you listen to it." - FFWD Weekly
