Purveyors of Free Will (aka Mark Anthony Brennan) releases his first EP in 3 years. Although primarily an instrumental (electronic) affair, the lyrical content adds a personally expressive dimension to tracks such as “The Day My Sister Ran Into the Sea” and “My God Has No Memory”.
From Montreal, the post-rock capital, comes Yoo Doo Right with their own twist on the genre. Things move faster at a post-punk pace and they don’t shy away from electronic. Dig the track “Presto Presto, Bella’s Dream”.
The startlingly original Jessica Cho (aka Korea Town Acid) goes jazzy trip-hop in this sparkling number.
Electronic/sound artist Andrew Collins Is as creative as ever, presenting a track with a slinky and mysterious vibe.
BATH emanate from the Slocan Valley in the Kootenays. Morrigan Bonegardener (guitar/vocals) and Michelle Reddick (drums) meld sludge metal with their haunting vocals to produce a hypnotic, supernatural groove.
Victoria’s The Dayfather veers off the beaten path with a quirky number that is strangely engaging.
Kamloops singer-songwriter JP Lancaster goes solo after fronting At Mission Dolores for several years. The songs seem more personal, but that low-key vibe, slick but slightly wonky, is still in full evidence.
Devours (Vancouver’s Jeff Cancade) adds flamboyance to the ’80s synth vibe. The result is pure summer magic.
Catch the entire album ‘Escape from Planet Devours’.
Chances are the Montreal trio of Vincent Carré, Chloé Lacasse and Geneviève Toupin. Together they blend atmospheric synths and loops with absolutely heavenly vocal harmonies.
From their latest album, ‘Connection’.
‘Victoria’s Secret 2021’ is another collection of true nuggets from Victoria’s wildly creative music scene.
“Music is nothing else but wild sounds civilized into time and tune.”
