pif paf

Last one for Weird Tuesday. I don’t even know how to begin describing this one. Yes, the song is as odd as the band’s name.

zaum

Progressive middle eastern psychedelic experimental drone metal. No, I’m not kidding. Come on, try it! And it’s from New Brunswick — I should be made an honorary citizen of that province!

Ken Park (Scott Harwood from Ostrich Tuning) released You Think About It Too Much in July. Though it’s an electronic album, it pays homage to Harwood’s shoegaze-pop side.

[LISTEN] COWARDS – New Country

cowards

It would be easy to dismiss Cowards as just another lo-fi punk band from Vancouver. First of all, they’re not really punk, more like noise rock with a goth edge. Furthermore, listening to their album ‘World Champions in Male Chastity’ you get the sense there is some inspired madness beneath the sneering surface. This probably won’t be the last time I talk about them….

Suuns took the song “Sunspot” from last year’s Images du Futur and turned it into a mini short-film featuring a dude washing the blood off his hands.

kroy

Sometimes I picture the streets of Montreal as being jammed with electronic musicians all bumping into each other like charged particles. Here’s one with a positive charge: KROY (Camille Poliquin), whose synthpop is inventive and reflective.

[LISTEN] TECHNICAL KIDMAN – FRACTIONS

technical kidman

More than just a funny play on words, Montreal’s Technical Kidman creates some fascinating electronica. This one is “Fractions” from the EP ‘A Stranger Voice’. Some shades of the Alan Parsons Project in there.

[LISTEN] KIN – HEALTH (EP)

kin

‘Health’ is the debut by a young trio from Abbotsford, BC. Lead singer Trevor Blaak’s vocal stylings will evoke memories of Jeff Buckley, but the music here is more jazzy and free-form. Given the band’s poise, inventiveness and lyrical depth it is rather startling that these three young lads just recently finished high school! This is a mature work for an artist of any age.

[LISTEN] MI’ENS – EXPERIMENTALSPARKLENOISEPOP (LP)

miens

Mi’ens is a math-rock duo from Vancouver, with Evan Johansen on drums and Kim Glennie on guitar, loops and the occasional vocal. On their latest album they bring vibrancy, warmth and joy to a genre that is too often dismissed for being overly clinical. And it’s nice when a band gives you a title that pretty well sums it all up — ‘experimentalsparklenoisepop’. Yup.
