Daphni gives up a killer track that smoothly dodges through hip-hop and jazz as it drives powerfully on a drum and bass march.
Singer-songwriter Cat Clyde finds a niche here a Irregular Dreams. Folk sensibilities give way to a bluesy delivery, lending things a trip-hoppy air.
Beautiful, California grace our pages for the first time (but we hope not the last). In actuality a solo artist from lovely Burlington, ON, BC’s forte is crafting atmospheric pieces with the dark beauty of Joy Division and the mysticism of a David Lynch movie. This is no exception.
Barrie, ON’s David Stone presents a low-key folk tune, riddled with subtle complexities and powered by lyrics that defy the “song/ditty” format:
“If I close my eyes, it’s 1995, your answering machine couldn’t come at worse time. Grey carpet stairs, dust suspended in a solar-flare, I’m on a flickering signal, broadcasting from nowhere.”
The retro feel of “Machines” (think ’80s electropop) is a delight as it playfully suggests more contemporary themes and sounds.
Astrolope is manic dual synth/drum-operating scientist Paul Geldart, member of Other Families and Waxlimbs. He throws down his own coral reefs of vibrant electronica and cathartic drum kit hysteria, bursting his boiling point a few times, throughout this live session video of three intricate interconnect concoctions, cast under a geometric square halo. An impressionable sonorous beast, tilting on the fluid spectrum between Jekyll and Hyde, and so irresistibly captivating for it!
Have you ever heard of a unrequited love song from the perspective of
an alien visitor? Eclectic runk singer-songwriter G. Michael Thomas gives us that thematic song with yearning cries over a spirited mellow 80s electropop chillwave basis, under his main musical persona Markoa.
“Distant Friend” appears on Love Bite, available PWYC on Bandcamp.
