Victoria/Montreal-based Freak Heat Waves are as darkly disturbing as ever, but now they wrap it up in a sleek groove.
Adam Cantor (aka general gruff) records from lock-down. He explores his folksy side, but his sense of weirdness is ever-present.
Crusty grind/punk cranked up to “lock-down” intensity.
From the Victoria band’s latest EP ‘Raise the Red Lanterns’.
Montreal’s Crying High spent some time in Victoria and will be releasing ‘Victory’ in September which celebrates their time in the westcoast city. Here’s a sneak preview: “All Summer Long” featuring their friends Bridal Party.
This Victoria artist is an odd delight. An electronic beat is incongruously accompanied by “warm” instruments. The result is a groovy vibe with warped highlights.
Sussy (aka Suzannah Raudaschl of Bridal Party) puts out another solo EP. Smooth and silky, her lyrical sensibilities will entrance yet again.
Electronic artist redress follows up last year’s brilliant ‘Above All Else’ with an album that is more “dance” oriented. Never fear, it’s still brilliant.
Brand new track from Elura (Victoria’s Nick Roland). His signature personal and dark folk is set in a bed of subdued but masterfully crafted orchestration.
Victoria stoner garage band The Dog Indiana return with a blistering track that has hints of post-punk paranoia.
“Milktrout are a Canadian garage-rock / folk ensemble playing music inspired by the things they know: the dark, the cold, lost sanity, and strong ale.”
