[…] les nouvelles chansons mettent de l'avant un son plus ciselé, des structures plus audacieuses et néanmoins fluides […] 3 étoiles 1/2

Random Recipe's name truly and simply suits their sound. With a fine mixture of human warmth, originality and musical inspiration from all over the world, the Montreal band was able to slip away from the attribution of a specific music tag by opening their horizon and offering a playful journey to the world.randomrecipe.ca
Random Recipe celebrate their 10th anniversary with Distractions, a fiercely independent and crowdsourced third album, catalyzed by hundreds of shows played all over the world. Now a trio, the group strongly reaffirm their quirky musical identity with this collection of 8 songs co-produced by Philippe Brault and Marie-Hélène L. Delorme (FOXTROTT), who definitely brought a bold, percussive and dazzling quality to the project.
After Kill the Hook (2013) and Fold It! Mold It! (2010), Frannie, Fab and Liu-Kong embarked on a creative journey propelled by inspiring collaborations. Partners in crime Marie-Hélène L. Delorme (FOXTROTT), Marie-Pierre Arthur, Rhonda Smith (Prince), Ladybug Mecca (Digable Planets), Lisa Iwanycki (Blood and Glass), Heartstreets, Tali Taliwah (Nomadic Massive), Giselle Numba One, Sunny Moonshine (Sunny & Gabe) and Emily Lazar encouraged them to redefine, reaffirm and enrich their musical trajectory. On this new album, Random Recipe have infused their trademark eclectic sound with pop, rap, funk and electro.
During the writing process, the group chose to question the music industry, and above all, women’s contribution and evolution in the music world. As a result, the lyrics of the songs on Distractions (the title alludes to our era of constant entertainment, overabundant information and ephemeral satisfaction) explore these social, political and feminist issues. Never before had the two singers’ complementary voices been so biting!
But above all, Random Recipe remain a truly astonishing stage act. Each of the new tracks on the album pays tribute to this love of live performance. With Distractions the trio is sure to keep blowing the roof off venues around the globe!
Formed by Frannie Holder, Fab, Vincent Legault and Liu-Kong Ha, the band has toured across Quebec as well as in Canada, France, Belgium, Iceland and United States. In addition to their numerous appearances at the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the Festival d'été de Québec, the quartet has been awarded many prizes for their performances (2011 Miroir for the Best Canadian Artist prize, RIDEAU's 2011 Étoiles Galaxie prize, etc.). Following the release of Fold It! Mold It! in September of 2010 in Canada through Bonsound and in January of 2012 in France via Chapter Two Records, the band was nominated in three categories at the 2011 ADISQ (Album of the year - Anglophone, Quebec artist of the year - Other languages and Album artwork of the year). Between collaborations with widely known artists such as Pierre Lapointe and DJ Champion, the quartet wrote their second full-length album, Kill the Hook, released in October of 2013.
