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

No Comments 12 October 2014

by Mark Anthony Brennan


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.

[Album Review] Rich Aucoin- Ephemeral

No Comments 12 October 2014

by Tiana Feng


Release Date: September 9th, 2014
Label: Bonsound

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

No Comments 09 October 2014

by Mark Anthony Brennan


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

[Watch] Ryan Hemsworth- Snow in Newark

No Comments 09 October 2014

by Tiana Feng

Ryan Hemsworth dropped a video for “Snow in Newark” where he shaves his head and becomes some sort of monk in Nepal. It’s quite a beautiful video. Next month (November 14th) he’ll be releasing another LP called Alone For the First Time. I wouldn’t recommend doing your year end lists just yet.

[Listen] Vogue Dots – Way With Silence

No Comments 08 October 2014

by Mark Anthony Brennan

The Vogue Dots just get better and better. The new single “Way With Silence” is dark, evocative electro pop that pulls you in and won’t let you go. Not that you’ll want to be freed. Resistance is futile.

LUM In Luv

LUM (or more familiarly know as Liam Sanagan of First Rate People fame) released this gem via Exclaim! this morning. Here he croons over a shimmering track that speaks to the doe eyed romantic in all of us. Listen closely for evocative lyrics, stay for the masterful sampling of Da Bra and Cherish’s single “In Love Wit Chu.”

I’d like to know more about Allegories but all I can tell you is that they are from Hamilton. They do, however, create lovely synth-pop soundscapes. Hear and see for yourself.
