Men I Trust – Lauren

As predicted, prolific Quebec City outfit Men I Trust continues its streak of major league vibes with their latest: “Lauren”. Complete with another quality home-made music video and musically speaking – a sublime bassline and plush vocal harmonies, Men I Trust further cement themselves as a Canadian indie-pop staple.

We’ll continue to watch their every move. Do check out the incredible back catalogue on Bandcamp.

Premiere: Lesionread – Listen To Me

Reminiscent of early Zero 7 and some of Bibio’s best, today’s premiere comes to us via Lesionread, a Canadian in exile, currently living less than a kilometre from the Canadian border, in Buffalo.

Sometimes music videos strive to achieve too much, either through contrived narrative elements or by simply missing the mark. However, in the case of today’s premiere, it is quite the opposite. The music video set to Lesionread’s “Listen To Me” perfectly mirrors the music’s psychedelic-pop essence – with the help of oscillating kaleidoscopic visions and, well, every color imaginable. Meanwhile, the music is deeply layered, complete with grandiose sweeping filter effects – etching a rich backdrop for Lesionread’s coy vocals. Trippy, man!

As we await Lesionread’s promised return to Canadian soil, make sure to check out his upcoming split cassette mixtape with Niagara Falls’ singer Space Cubs, out June 3rd. We surely will! In the meantime, there’s plenty of back catalogue on Bandcamp to explore.

Radiant Baby – You Can Dance

Radiant Baby‘s candid and catchy electro-pop songs have been on our radar since we last posted about him last fall. And now, a video single has finally emerged of a Montreal dance party anthem known as “You Can Dance”, second track off his self-titled debut EP released last fall.

Spawned from the creative minds of Cameron Mitchell and Christopher Hegenberg, the video for “You Can Dance” is a psychedelic romp through geometric and pastel references to a certain early 90s aesthetic (New Jack Swing?) that we had almost forgotten. Excellent!

You can check out the rest of the EP on Bandcamp.
