Rock progressif et psychedelique! Actually, this album by Montreal’s Babylones is not all progressive or psychedelic, but it’s all great power pop. Amusez-vous bien!

New Swim Good in my inbox this morning! “Warmth”‘s samples are sort of silly, but kind of addictively chill.

Sometimes I picture the streets of Montreal as being jammed with electronic musicians all bumping into each other like charged particles. Here’s one with a positive charge: KROY (Camille Poliquin), whose synthpop is inventive and reflective.

[Album Review] Tyson- Casio Fiasco

Release Date: August 10th, 2014
Label: Label Fantastic

Tyson Brinacombe may have once recorded under the moniker ‘Tyson and His Game Boy’ and, yes, this album may be called ‘Casio Fiasco’, but I still wouldn’t exactly call this chiptune. For one thing, the rhythms and beats here sound organic (for the most part). Second of all, the keyboards don’t sound as cheesy as most 8-bit noodling does. And finally, what takes centre stage here, regardless of the backing music, is the singer and his songs — and this is an impressive set of songs.  Continue Reading

[WATCH] MARK MILLS – GIN & CATATONIC

No Comments 23 August 2014

by Mark Anthony Brennan

Despite the somewhat cheesy-sounding analog electropop beats, Mark Mills’ songs are sincere and personal. The video to “Gin & Catatonic” takes the DIY aesthetic to the extreme — I think even I could have bankrolled this one!

Cecil Frena dropped the next track from his No Sorrow video project. This takes you back to older Born Gold tunes and remains so much fun. I really love the line “I know no metaphor worth saving from the fire

[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
