“Abduction” is a disturbing track from the debut full-length album by singer/poet Marie Davidson. It is a work of electronic dark-synth and is completely performed and sung (actually, more spoken) by Davidson alone.

[LISTEN] Expwy – EP

expwy

Expwy was Matt LeGroulx. The Montreal musician recorded several albums/EP’s in his apartment between 2010 and 2014, and they normally featured a particular genre of music. ‘EP’ was his electronic/bossa nova/samba offering. Notice I’m using the past tense. That’s because LeGroulx has retired the name Expwy and is now focusing on his new band Galaxius Mons.

(BTW, I always liked bossa nova and I’m predicting it’s gonna make an underground comeback.)

[Album Review] Dada Plan- A Dada Plan Is Free

Release Date: October 21st, 2014
Label: Kingfisher Bluez

Dada was an art movement in the early 20th century that celebrated the absurd and the nonsensical. A data plan, on the other hand, is a mundane phrase from the early 21st century that is a reflection of our electronic media-obsessed society. Put the two together and you have … I dunno, a bunch of guys who think they’re clever? The good news is that, from a musical perspective, they are.

temple volant

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?

[Album Review] Hansmole- Whitest Whiteness

Release Date: September 17th, 2014
Label: Independent

Up until now Hansmole (or Hannah van Adrichem, according to her driver’s licence) has been first and foremost a visual artist. So it comes as no surprise that she brings an artist’s aesthetic to bear when she turns her talents to music. None of the tracks on ‘Whitest Whiteness’ are simple in their structure, as each has been carefully composed with a vision in mind. Consider the song “Sunshine” with its contrasting elements (a recurring device throughout the record). There are light leopards on the surface with a sombre rhythm below, like a dark undercurrent in a babbling brook. Van Adrichem’s pleasant voice is offset by eerie, heavily processed backing harmonies. When she sings the refrain, “Sunshine“, it is cleverly accompanied by a burst of glittering synths, like the sun suddenly bursting forth from behind a cloud.
