Experimental electronica from Montreal’s Temple Volant (aka Sami Blanco). This was apparently recorded after his last album ‘Daydream Drawings’ and is what Blanco refers to as a “late night work out”. Huh. Most people just work on their toe-nail clipping collection as a late night work out.

Moon Maker is an electropop artist originally from France, now in Montreal. Check out the hazy jam “Loving You” featuring The Entranced. The vibe for some reason reminds me of Bjork’s “Army of Me”.
Pining for the magical sounds of Majical Cloudz? Yeah, me too. Apparently we will have to wait until at least some time in 2015 for a new album, but in the meantime we will have to make do with this tidbit — a previously unreleased track that they’ve been kicking around for years. You guys have anything else in your back pocket?
At RtT we are already fans of Vancouver’s Skinny Kids, so we’re pretty happy to see a new release, this one on 7″ vinyl. ‘Strangers’ is no disappointment, with four more cuts of garage psych fun.
The Good: “Around Your Mind”. The boys just go to town here, toying with the sounds of ’60’s psychedelic surf rock to their hearts’ content.
The Bad: There’s no forward momentum here, but is that what we were expecting?
The Skinny: I would buy this for the art work alone. Seriously though, there is only so much you can do with garage rock and you can’t continue to sound like you recorded your album in your brother-in-law’s basement forever (can you??), so how long can this all last? Yeah, I know, I’m repeating myself — I just asked the same question a few weeks ago. We’ll take it while it lasts.
