[Album Review] Mozart’s Sister- Being

Release Date: August 5th, 2014
Label: Paper Bag Records

Caila Thompson-Hannant (a.k.a. Mozart’s Sister) is a close friend of Claire Elise Boucher (a.k.a. Grimes), which is perhaps even more reason why the two are constantly being compared, to the point that MS is often dubbed the ‘next Grimes’. This is patently unfair, because it is completely a no-win situation. If she does sound like Grimes then she’s a copycat, if she doesn’t then she is not living up to the comparison. So let’s not do this – let’s review MS solely on her own merits without making reference to anyone else. Fair is fair. Continue Reading

[LISTEN] VOGUE DOTS – TOSKA (EP)

VogueDots-CH05B

OK, so just what is it with me and New Brunswick these days?? I don’t going looking for it – music from that province somehow just keeps crossing my path. I don’t mind!

Vogue Dots are the experimental duo of Babette Hayward and Tynan Dunfield, and their self-titled debut is a thing of rare beauty. The only negative thing to say here is that it is too damn short. The Vogue Dots are meticulous in their production, leaving not one note wasted or out of place. Listening to their EP is such a rich and satisfying experience that you want to scream in frustration when it ends all too quickly.

This is essentially indie folk set to dreamy electronica. The duo weave complex tapestries of clever instrumentation, while Hayward’s ethereal voice hangs in the air like a wispy cloud. From the throbbing, danceable beats of “Skinny Thing” to the gorgeous atmospherics of “Mercy” this is one of the best collection of songs you’ll hear all year. Guaranteed.

And, hey, thanks New Brunswick. Stay classy!

Quirky folk rock, “found” sound bites and analog synthesizer noodling make for an enjoyable 4-track EP of folktronica.
