[Listen] Egyptrixx – Transfer of Energy

egyptrixx

A decidedly unsettling chunk of industrial techno from Egyptrixx. We’re guessing it’s the sound of things to come as the Toronto producer prepares to release a new album in 2015.

[Listen] Mimico – Fate Screen/Fresh Snow – Mony, Mony (7″ split)

mimico

Here’s a cool 7″ split for you. One side you’ve got a Mimico’s “Fate Screen” a total ’80’s throwback with a motorik beat, steely synths and a goth-like vocal delivery. Other side is an instrumental version of “Mony, Mony” by Fresh Snow. When you’ve a rhythm this groovy who needs words? (actually, it’s “Mony, Mony”, so who needs words anyway?)

jg EP

Montreal producer Jacques Greene’s debut full-length is coming in 2015. In the meantime he has just dropped this 2-track EP, ‘Afterlife Afterparty’. The song “1 4 Me” sees him switch from analog to digital, but with its ghostly vocal samples it will satisfy fans of his work.

Psychic Pollution kicks off this week’s Weird Tuesday. The performance artists (J. Schuurman, according to his library card) creates experimental synth music, in this case with a disturbing undertone.

[Watch] Daniel Lanois – Sioux Lookout

No Comments 27 October 2014

Another video from Daniel Lanois’ ‘Flesh and Machine’ album. This one features kaleidoscopic images that are trippy and hypnotic — fittingly so because the track “Sioux Lookout” is, you guessed it, trippy and hypnotic.

[Watch] Boundary – Expo 67

Cinematic electronic minimalism from Boundary. The b/w video to “Expo 67″ is a fittingly unembellished portrayal of Poirier and company in performance.

[Listen] Temple Volant – Bubble

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’.

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.
