Cecil Frena aka Born Gold is releasing a video series called No Sorrow featuring some new stuff. “I Want to be Naked” is a glitchy upbeat tune that will have a video very soon.

Animalia, or Jill Krasnicki as her mother calls her, is originally from Hobart, Tasmania. After playing bass for Australian bands for several years she finally ended up in Toronto where she decided to go solo. ‘Mouth Full of Teeth‘ is her wonderful debut. I got the chance to catch up with Jill to discuss her new album and to ask about her transition from an acoustic artist to an electronic one: Continue Reading

liinks 2

The BC electronic duo of Georgia Murray (vocals) and DJ DWhiz (production) go by the name of LIINKS. Their first single “The Break” has pop sensibilities, but there is still enough of a dark, trip hop edge to keep indie fans happy.

[Watch] River Tiber- Prophets

No Comments 16 July 2014

To compliment their sprawling tune “Prophets”, River Tiber filmed a rather chillout video featuring their name on neon signs, jelly fish and empty parking lots. Glitchier things are added as the song gets more intense. We end up with a slow motion sparkler of sorts.

Finally we get a new Prince Innocence track! Loving the juxtaposition of slow vocals with the speedy synths. An album is apparently taking fruition.

An excellent double-shot of electronica from the brilliant Waxlimbs: first, a disturbing bit of noise pop featuring Mash, and then a lovely Portishead-like number featuring Isabella Davis.

Lydia Ainsworth

Lydia Ainsworth is gearing up to release her debut album Right from Real in September, and in the lead up she’s released “PSI”. The track features breathy vocals from Ainsworth and Active Chid-esque harp/chime runs, juxtaposed with a strong electro base. All in all it’s a great taste of more to come.

Release Date: June 4th, 2014
Label: Killjoy Collective

I read recently somewhere that electronic music is currently a creative wasteland. Maybe so, but there are still some acts around worthy enough to restore its good name. Case in point, Animalia (a.k.a. Jill Krasnicki), who may be favourably compared to the likes of Goldfrapp, St.Vincent, and even Bjork. None of those are “electronic artists”, you say? Precisely. In emulating the example set by these excellent female songwriters Krasnicki deftly avoids the pitfall of placing too heavy an emphasis on sound effects and gimmicks at the expense of solid song structure.
