Spence Newell of New Hands is a silhouette in front of projections in this video for “Swimming”. I always get surprised by his low croon.

[Watch] Evy Jane- Closer

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Vancouver’s Evy Jane. Evelyn Jane Mason and Jeremiah Klein reveal “Closer” a dazzling electropop tune through a music video that hallucinates in many colours.

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)

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!

Glory Glory is back with the release of their EP So Long. Halifax based indie-rock trio brought on board Grammy nominated producer/mix engineer Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend) for the indie and new-wave influenced jams. Due for release on April 1, the band also has some fun pre-order Glory gear offerings available via the website.. When you are done ordering The Lollipop Man bundle, you can learn the words to “Indigo Son” via the lyric video.

[Listen] Mesa Luna- Shutting Down

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.
