It’s no surprise that Camp David‘s latest EP, Babes Before Christ is one of the best things we’ve heard all year. Humorous but heartfelt, this collection of bedroom electro-pop songs might sound effortless but original, catchy, and succinct pop music doesn’t just grow on trees. Master songwriter at work here!

Our bloggy brethren Quick Before it Melts are becoming well-known for their annual Canada day Cancon covers compilation Dominionated, and this year’s edition featured a ton of artists we love, including Kashka and Matt LeGroulx (of Galaxius Mons). But our two very favourite covers were Toronto’s VIRE taking on Nash the Slash’s stone-cold classic “Swing Shift” and Winnipeg bedroom pop maestro Camp David‘s version of another synth-pop-pantheon cut, Spoons’ “Nova Heart”.
