Alden Penner is a Canadian musician who was in the Montreal based band The Unicorns. Before The Unicorns, he recorded music of his own and was in various bands such as Poor Alexander. After the Unicorns, he released a 7" vinyl called "The Ghost of Creaky Crater" on an Australian label, while living there for a period of a year. After returning to Montreal, he played with a man named Adam, a former member of the Arcade Fire, and made music for the soundtrack to a film called "The Hamster Cage".Read More...
He then finished an album with his band, Clues, who were working with producer Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, The Unicorns, Islands, Beirut, Final Fantasy). They played their first show at the Pop Montreal Festival, in an intimate chapel. The show was considered a highlight of the festival, due to the shambolic beauty of their set. Clues disbanded in 2010, about a year after their only album was released.
