Ginla, that duo that met in Boston but now do their thing in Toronto, just put out a great follow-up to “Almost Plastic.” “Things You Have” is a very shoegazy electronic pop track featuring some of the breathiest synths and singing we’ve ever come across. Very cool sound! This is going to be on their forthcoming EP Dreaming In Circles, out November 11. We’ll be watching for it.

MP3: Motëm – Truth Be Knownst

Motëm, how we’ve missed ya. Well it hasn’t been that long since last year’s Insider/Outsider and Caveman in Japan but we’re always hungering for more Motëm. Hamilton’s hazy motivational electro-rap guru has put out the Einzelgänger mixtape and it’s on a whole other level. Single “Truth be Knownst” is probably the highlight, a deep grooving production that’s very direct in its message. Be yourself! Do it today!

You can stream the whole Einzelgänger mixtape on Soundcloud, or grab it as a free download from Mediafire, where he’s made it available for unlimited consumption.

Jamaican Queens, forever amazing. Their miracle-of-an-album Wormfood was our #3 of last year, and it’s been so long since we’ve had some new Jamqueens to get down to. The wait’s over: the Detroit band just released a new single, “Bored + Lazy,” and it’s a slithering bit of robo-funk featuring vocoded lead vocals. We don’t know if this means another album is just around the corner or not, but they’re on tour in the Northern US (and Windsor!) so if you’re able, get thee to a show.

MP3: Ev Ree Wuhn – Found You / Use Me Up (ft. Devin Wilson)

Toronto’s Ev Ree Wuhn have been dormant as of late, so it makes sense that they will be releasing their first full length later this year. As a teaser for things to come, the trio have released the atmospheric and glitchy double A-side single above, featuring guest vocals from Devin Wilson of Bravestation and some pretty damn neat bleeps and bloops. We’re definitely intrigued, and will be keeping our ears alert for any new developments moving forward.

MP3: Rococode – Banks

Vancouver’s Rococode are a haunting electropop duo that do all the things we love, making unabashed pop music that remains dark and restrained. Their first single since 2012’s Guns, Sex & Glory, “Banks” is a brilliant new direction, and features a fantastic melody backed by a deep synth-bass groove.

MP3: Antoine93 – The Physical Aspect of Love

New Antoine93 song! Ugh, we love this guy and his alienated alien-pop – the Antoine-verse is a very distinct universe, a very bizarre place where the dance parties are strange but memorable. “The Physical Aspect of Love” is one of his strongest singles yet, and we can’t wait to hear the album that it portends. We can expect Maybe Unlock My Heart in November! Yes!!!

Torontonians, you should catch Antoine93 with Silent Shout faves Ken Park and Mathémathique this Saturday at Double Double Land.

MP3: Majical Cloudz – Your Eyes

Majical Cloudz have been busy touring with Lorde, bowling over her audiences no doubt. And to celebrate the tour’s end, they’ve decided to rework “Your Eyes,” a track originally on their 2011 debut album. This new version has more direct vocals, and a bigger, more pristine sound. Both versions are excellent! As is anything they do! (As you might recall, Impersonator was our #1 album of 2013.) You can read their heartfelt message to the people they met on tour on their Tumblr.

MP3: Galaxius Mons – Controller Down (feat. Jef Barbara)

“Controller Down” is like a dream we didn’t know we had coming true. Galaxius Mons and Jef Barbara are two underground Montreal pop artists we love dearly, for very different reasons. Galaxius are electropop experimenters of the highest order, and their debut album was our #6 album of last year. And they’ve got none other than Canada’s premier underground pop star Jef Barbara to sing vocals on their latest single, a brass-heavy electrofunk track that pumps like no Galaxius Mons track before it. Blast it out your car stereo!

Galaxius Mons are on tour right now in Ontario and Montreal, including an appearance tonight at Nite Comfort with Silent Shout darlings Petra Glynt, Mekele and Chanteclair. Check out rest of the Galaxius Mons tour dates over at Exclaim.

MP3: Boyhood – Make Up

Posted on October 15th, by arp2600 in MP3

Lobster (1)

Ottawa’s Boyhood (Caylie Runciman) continues her trajectory into stoned-out electro space. While the core experimentation is still in tact, gone are the garage-pop sounds of days past in favour for the drum machines, keyboard and samplers you know we love. In the eyes of many, Ottawa label Bruised Tongue can do no wrong, and you can consider us among those acolytes, especially with an exciting project like Boyhood on the roster.

MP3: Vogue Dots – Way With Silence

Posted on October 14th, by digits in MP3

So Vogue Dots keep getting better and better. We were fairly impressed with their debut EP Toska – okay fine we loved it to bits – and last month they released an excellent new single on Cascine. So it’s no surprise that their latest, the lead single from their forthcoming Mauka EP is another extremely accomplished anthemic atmospheric electropop gem. With an incredibly evil arpeggiated coda. Dropped jaws over here!

“Way With Silence” was premiered by our Austin pals Gorilla vs. Bear. Mauka comes out on Indica Records next week.
