[Listen] Various Artists – Fourteen for Fourteen: Indie Victoria 2014

Just to prove that not all great Canadian indie music comes from Toronto, Montreal and Halifax, here’s a nifty collection by indie artists based in Victoria, BC. And a varied collection it is, featuring dark folk, psychedelic rock, art rock, dream pop, EDM, ambient yacht rock and stuff we don’t know how to categorize. RTT regulars will recognize a couple of bands that have made our Top Ten of the week, such as Black Valley Gospel and Deep Sea Gypsies. All proceeds go the local food bank in Victoria (Mustard Seed). And, hey, who’s not up for a good Doctor Who album cover?

[Watch] Dead Air – May Day

No Comments 21 November 2014

by Mark Anthony Brennan

EDM artists Dead Air provide a visual inspired by early video games. No, we are not out of season with “May Day”. The title refers to May Day as a term for SOS, not that day in Spring when socialists have fun dancing around a striped pole. Hmm, maybe I have that mixed up??

Six, six, pick up sticks:

RENNIE FOSTER (Vancouver)
rennie-foster-lessthan3-v2

There’s gonna be a lot of good house/techno/electro/DJ music at the Riff, but I just had to single out Rennie Foster because he’s something of a legend here on the West Coast and has been a Rifflandia favourite in past years. Foster spent several years as part of Japan’s club scene where he was consistently ranked as one of their top DJ’s. Catch him late night Friday.

[Listen] Jokers of the Scene- End Scene

jokersofthescene
Linus Booth and Chris Macintire aka Jokers of the Scene dropped “End Scene”. It’s rightfully named as it gets its perfect listens at night, in darkness behind closed doors, underground. Often those kind of end scenes are just the end of the day, but the beginning of a night (and party).

[Listen] In Dreams- Hologram EP #ECMA2014

hologram

In Dreams is an electronic indie-pop band from New Brunswick. Their 2013 Hologram EP caught my ear while I prepped for this week’s East Coast Music Week – it’s nominated for the 2013 electronic recording of the year.

Hologram creates a mesmerizing soundscape by combining high-energy electronic beats with clever, often geeky lyrics and themes. The tracks are playful and upbeat without being overly electronic, and feature ethereal vocals by Susan Colwell.

From the edgier “Corruptable” to the upbeat “Show off”, this album surprised me with it’s variety. If you’re a classic gamer, check out “8-Bit Man”, which, as it’s title suggests, features retro 8-bit music.  “Hologram”, the album’s title song, remains my personal favourite because of it’s futuristic feel and beautiful lyrics.

If you’re in Charlottetown this week, you can catch In Dreams performing at Fishbone’s New Brunswick Stage and the Hunter’s Electronic Stage on Friday night.
