Here’s another random Bandcamp find. Chersea is from Vancouver and if you skip over the unnecessary “Prelude”, you’ll be delighted by her blend of effortless vocals and danceable percussion.

Here’s a random Bandcamp find from Montreal. Other than that I don’t know much about them but I do dig these beats. They don’t have much on their website besides this song and a promise of an album (that was supposed to be released in March).

[Listen] Mathematique- Feel

mathematique
Jef Barbara and Karneef member Pascale Mercier makes her own music under the monicker Mathematique. She recently dropped an EP on Stellar Kinematics called “Feel”. The songs have an underwater vibe, like Young Galaxy, but is very different at the same time. Feel is a very fitting title for the collection of songs as you definitely will be entranced by everything from the building arrangements, Mercier’s voice and excellent remixes.

[Listen] Swim Good- Grand Beach (feat. S. Carey & Daniela Andrade)

grandbeach
Swim Good teamed up with dreamy vocalist Daniela Andrade as well as Bon Iver’s drummer S. Carey for their latest tune “Grand Beach”. I love this tune because it has essentially two parts, an easy going part with strummed guitar, and a dreamier part like the hazy memories of summer.

[Watch] daysdeaf – Giving Life to Greys

1 Comment 07 April 2014

Music videos are becoming cool again! Whether its  Arcade Fire wearing animated paper-mache heads in “Reflektor” or Pharrell’s eternally cheerful “Happy”, acts are injecting some long-lost creativity back into this art form, achieving the desired result of furthering the senses from the song. The video for “Giving Life to Greys” has achieved that with a fraction of the budget. 

That’s the single by Toronto’s daysdeaf aka Manvir Rai from his upcoming release When Colour Lost Light. The electronica-infused song with steady beats, minimalist keys and Manvir’s spacey vocals is a calming listen. The accompanying video has bright colours mixing together in a giant space, that gently steers the mind to a fantastical place. Like music videos used to in the ol times!

Another one in this morning’s chill tunes is this ethereal tune from Calgary/Montreal’s Chalks. So far on her Bandcamp there’s only this one track but I’m intrigued enough to hear more.

How else to poke fun at reality than to make a video with robots? That’s what the sisters of Tasseomancy did. This is interestingly different. Let’s hope for an album soon!

When you are done ordering The Lollipop Man bundle, you can learn the words to “Indigo Son” via the lyric video.

Mesa Luna may literally have been inspired by the shutting down of the Vancouver venue of the same name. The 2 electronic songs on the Bandcamp dangle with this idea of shutting down and moving forward with life.

[Listen] In Dreams- Hologram EP #ECMA2014

hologram

In Dreams is an electronic indie-pop band from New Brunswick. Their 2013 Hologram EP caught my ear while I prepped for this week’s East Coast Music Week – it’s nominated for the 2013 electronic recording of the year.

Hologram creates a mesmerizing soundscape by combining high-energy electronic beats with clever, often geeky lyrics and themes. The tracks are playful and upbeat without being overly electronic, and feature ethereal vocals by Susan Colwell.

From the edgier “Corruptable” to the upbeat “Show off”, this album surprised me with it’s variety. If you’re a classic gamer, check out “8-Bit Man”, which, as it’s title suggests, features retro 8-bit music.  “Hologram”, the album’s title song, remains my personal favourite because of it’s futuristic feel and beautiful lyrics.

If you’re in Charlottetown this week, you can catch In Dreams performing at Fishbone’s New Brunswick Stage and the Hunter’s Electronic Stage on Friday night.

Thanks to Silent Shout for the discovery of Mori. The Montreal artist released a 3 song EP free on Bandcamp last October and the music has great hooks and a snuggily familiar tone.

[Watch] Virginia to Vegas – We Are Stars

Virginia to Vegas. That’d make for a hell of a road trip movie. It is also Derik Baker’s vehicle to music stardom (see what I did there?) The small-town Ontario fella, originally discovered by indie label Wax Records via YouTube, released ‘We Are Stars’ feat Alyssa Reid back in January. The song has made quiet a splash on the airwaves both sides of the border. Now, there is a music video as well to further grow your love for him.

His debut album has a summer release date. Prayers for a better face of ‘Can-pop’ have been answered. Thank you Derik Baker!

Robert Alfons goes alone in Joyland, no longer partnered with Maya Postepski (who is also in Austra). This leaves Alfons to expand his explorations into gothic pop sound. Continue Reading

Remember Winter Gloves? We were huge fans here at Ride the Tempo. Now Charles F Huot from the band has another project called Dear Frederic. “Outlast” proves to be just as catchy as anything by the Gloves.
