Mozart's sister
Halfway through the Mozart’s Sister show someone from the crowd exclaimed, “Your music is awesome!”, a moment of spontaneity that rang completely true. Sure talking about the halfway point of a set may be an odd way to start a review, but walking into the sparsely attended venue thirty minutes prior, I had no idea that my mind was about to be blown.

Most People @ The Olympic Community Hall (Halifax Pop Explosion) 10/24/2014

most people

Most People are actually two people, Brandon Gibson-DeGroote and Paul McEachern. Both are bearded fellows whose electro-indie pop locates that sweet spot between sincere, nostalgi,c longing and unabashed exuberance.
Hailing from Burlington and now Toronto based, the duo have been steadily and confidently carving out their own place in the city’s music scene for a few years, including a fruitful relationship with Wavelength Music. Continue Reading

Label: Merge Records

After 2010’s ‘Swim’ it should come as no surprise that Caribou (aka Dan Snaith) should again delve into contemporary R&B on his new album ‘Our Love’. And even though the lyrics take on a lighter tone this time out, long-time fans can be rest assured that Snaith is not forsaking his subtle artistry in his march to the dancefloor.

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”.

Not entirely sure why I haven’t posted yet about Calgary’s Beach Season because their latest single “Midnights” is so damn sexy. Late night chills for you.

[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.

It’s hard to review a Rich Aucoin album without also referencing his live shows. The energy, spontaneity and uplifting spirit of his concerts are captured in his latest album Ephemeral, but unlike 2011’s We’re All Dying to Live, the new album is listenable and just as good on it’s own as a cohesive work.

[Album Review] Lydia Ainsworth- Right From Real

Release Date: September 29th, 2014
Label: Arbutus Records

Given her background in composing scores for film, it should come as no surprise that Lydia Ainsworth creates such breathtakingly evocative music. What is surprising is that the album that represents her full-length debut should come off sounding more like a career masterwork. The execution here is so seamlessly perfect that it impossible to find one fault (other than the fact that the record is too short). Continue Reading
