I promised myself I wouldn’t call this album quirky. That is, beyond a doubt, how most people would describe Québécois artist Carole Facal, who performs under the stage name Caracol. She left her home in Sherbrooke, Quebec for snowboarding on the slopes of British Columbia. Somewhere along the way she picked up a guitar, and we can all be grateful for that fact. The critically-acclaimed artist has now released her second solo album, Shiver.
