Language Arts (Nova Scotia)

Art-pop synth-wave real-goodery!!! Language Arts (2005-present) is the brainchild of Nova Scotia, Canada, native, Kristen Cudmore, and Grammy-winning Neil MacIntosh (Snarky Puppy); with their performing contributors Chris Pruden and Patrick O’Reilly.

The outfit has been praised for unforgettable live performances and bombastic sound.

Language Arts’ latest 2021 release, Lemon Lime was produced by David Bottrill (Peter Gabriel, Tool, and Smashing Pumpkins), and Joel Stouffer (Serena Ryder, Drgaonette). The result is a dizzying array of catchy songs that detail Cudmore’s recovery from a brain injury after being hit by a drunk driver.

The songs were written in hospital and recorded and released over five years as healing took place. Language Arts have been compared to Stereolab, Lykke Li, and Chairlift.
