temple volant

Experimental electronica from Montreal’s Temple Volant (aka Sami Blanco). This was apparently recorded after his last album ‘Daydream Drawings’ and is what Blanco refers to as a “late night work out”. Huh. Most people just work on their toe-nail clipping collection as a late night work out.

Dean Drouillard’s ‘UFO Houses’ will be released at month’s end. This hazy, swirling instrumental, “Return to the Start”, is clearly channeling George Harrison. Works for me.

Argh, why didn’t someone remind me it was Weird Tuesday? Not to worry, here’s a great video (if repetitive) by Sinoia Caves. It’s from the soundtrack to the Canadian sci-fi movie ‘Beyond the Black Rainbow’.

Just a small sampling of the ambient beauty that is Joshua van Tassel’s ‘Dance Music: Songs for Slow Motion’.

ant and atom

I figure if the name of the artist is An Ant and An Atom then that’s good enough for Weird Tuesday.

Fatal Relay

I’ve lost track of the number of releases put out by Alex Calder this year. When he stops being entertaining we’ll tell him to quit. This 4-track EP features an alternate version of “Someone’ and three new instrumentals. I’m not calling him in yet.

My love affair with New Brunswick rages unabated. Here is a slick piece of post-rock experimentation from Fredericton’s Force Fields. Don’t let that pretentious-sounding description put you off, this is really enjoyable.

[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.

[LISTEN] C. DIAB – BEACONS

No Comments 20 August 2014

c. diab

The elusive character known as C. Diab has produced another beautiful work of sonic architecture with his latest album ‘Beacons’. He has established a signature sound with his use of a cello bow, sometimes actually on a cello but usually on an electric guitar (and perhaps on his shower curtain, I can’t be sure). His ambient sound sculptures sometimes take you on a journey, other times they ebb and flow. And then there are times when they just leave you transfixed in place, taking in the ‘now’. Standout track: Outside Light.
