Montreal‘s Coco et Co just released their first album St. Denis – in fact they’re giving it away for free. Most of the music on it doesn’t really fit the Silent Shout mould (guitars, lack of despair) but “Super” strikes a nice balance of melancholy and drum machines.
Friday Classic Dark is a new feature showcasing some of the acts that inspired the new wave of dark electronic music.
A stellar song by one of Canada’s most intriguing artists. Someone once told me that Nash the Slash had his membership to the musician’s union revoked for using a drum machine instead of a live drummer. I don’t know if that’s true, but he should be considered a hero if it is.
