STAFF COMMENTS

says: Born ruffians, sounding like the result of a late-nite tryst between rock and/or roll and the Dodos return for their newest LP since 2015's 'Ruff'. Jangling melodies and swirling vocals meet hazy guitars and reverbed percussion to make their latest outing their best by far. Ace.

The album is the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize short-listed Ultramarine and their third album produced by Dan Lissvik (Studio, Atelje). Watch the trailer for Falsework here.

The winter of 2014/2015 took Young Galaxy from their studio in Montreal to Gothenburg and back. The band’s brilliant new full length Falsework completes the sound they have been mining on their past two albums Shapeshifting (2011) and Ultramarine (2013) with producer Dan Lissvik. The album is undeniably synth pop without the simplicity and was informed and inspired by 80’s electro, acid house and r&b, music that was well ahead of its time. Falsework was made using machines from the past to sound like music from the future.

Young Rival

Interior Light

    Toronto - Young Rival released their first piece of new music today since 2012’s Stay Young. The three piece known for their Nuggets-era blend of rock have emerged with an incredible new track, “Interior Light”. “Interior Light” is also the title track from the band’s forthcoming album out October 16th. Interior Light will be Young Rival’s first release on new label home Paper Bag Records.

    To coincide with the release of their new album Young Rival will head out on a full North American tour with label mates Born Ruffians. Working with producer and Hamilton native Graham Walsh—whose work they had admired on records by Viet Cong, Metz and Alvvays —Young Rival never stopped ripping at the seams of these songs, as though figuring out what made them tick. Interior Light doesn’t sound like the culmination of ten years’ worth of hard work. Instead, it sounds like a new start: a springboard for further experimentation and exploration.

    “We listened to a lot of Roy Orbison and the Everly Brothers, stuff like that," says the band's Aron D'Alesio. "We brought in some psych elements as well. So ‘croon psych’ became a term we were throwing around at each other in the studio, like Sinatra dropping acid with Deerhunter.” Formed in 2007, they’ve been highly praised for some of the best visual accompaniments produced by a band in recent history- with music video’s “Black Is Good” reaching well over a million views and “Two Reasons” close to a million.


    In 2010, Jamison, the person behind Teen Daze, had no idea what Four More Years would bring. That debut EP, a collection of blissful home recordings, was the work of a carefree 24 year-old. By 2012, things had changed, as they tend to do: relationships dissolved, illness affected his family, windows for outward communication were closing. The gravity of it all made for constant output; he reached for futuristic utopia with All Of Us, Together, found a devotional sanctuary inside The Inner Mansions, and embraced hibernation on Glacier. In hindsight, this was an artist coping through various forms of introverted escapism.

    While proud of the material, Jamison sought to break this cycle when approaching the next record. He knew it would take a few leaps of faith, most directly: out of his bedroom… out of his comfort zone. For the first time, he gave up some control, inviting the input of others. Bearing over 30 demos, Jamison joined one of his musical heroes John Vanderslice at Tiny Telephone, his all-analog studio in San Francisco. Beyond the immediate sonic advantages of recording to tape, the sessions with Vanderslice and co-producer Simon Bridgefoot encouraged a new positivity and confidence to his craft.

    The result is Morning World, eleven fully built, balanced, and expressed songs, the most vulnerable and honest Teen Daze LP to date. Thematically, Jamison paints a familiar picture: a Garden of Eden, a place of transcendent, painfree beauty, but with one key distinction... it’s not real and time there is finite. With vocals boldly up front—surrounded by strings, piano, guitar, and live percussion—he details a realm that, for the first time, has room for more than one. “Where does life go when it’s done,” he poses in the closing moments of “Post Storm”, before lending an answer that evokes the omnipresent wisdom of All Things Must Pass: “a moon replaces morning sun.

    For Those Who Stay is PS I Love You's third album, and it was made after Paul quit Kingston for a different big smoke. It was encouraged by the girding strength of love but of course it's still dredging and confused, of course it's still resplendent in its churn. Of course the band had to go back to Kingston to record it - working at a place called the Bathhouse, the duo's first time in "a proper studio".

    As always, PS I Love You's songs were the result of collage and experiment: "Advice" and "Friends Forever" were still being written until the moments they were recorded. But in the studio, Paul Saulnier says, with "fancy gear" and tons of time, they could wait until they "really nailed" the perfect part. "And I think we made a very indulgent and decadent album because of it."
