Minimalist cinematic glorious bliss punctuated with star-studded vibraphone and celeste transitioning elegantly into a momentous post-rock peak with electronic and symphonic sonic features, this piece raises the storytelling arch early in Toronto artist Joshua Van Tassel’s 2018 concept album Crossworlds, telling the magical sci-fi tale of an old woman who defends her home against a giant otherworldly sea creature.
“Iƒ•yuºwant˚it•” finds Cass43VR having fun with beats, but still the restless adventurous soul in them makes it intriguing.
“Kids” is the lead-off single from PUP’s latest album ‘Morbid Stuff’ (Apr. 5th). As much as the Toronto crew may have a morbid sense of humour, the album sounds like it will be far from mobid stuff. Lively, irresistible punk-pop more like it.
Toronto/Victoria band Hush Pup (Ida Maidstone, Fizzy Adams and Torrie Seager) thrills us with their impeccable dream pop. The video (by Mike Perreira) uses subdued imagery, bathed in reds, purples and oranges, to capture the trio’s magic.
