Doldrums – I Hear Music

Nice b-side from this year’s spectacular Lesser Evil, unceremoniously dumped on the Doldrums soundcloud last night. The description is our favourite part:

sean nicholas savage came to me in a dream and sang this song and i didn’t realise that it was a dream when i saw him so i told him how much i really liked his new tune and he looked at me like WTF?

Pile of Best Albums: Doldrums – Lesser Evil

Doldrums – Anomaly
Doldrums – Lesser Evil

It’s finally here! We’ve been waiting for this for a long, long time. Doldrums was one of the first artists we ever covered on the blog, when it was just a new project from the guy from Spiral Beach. My my, how things have changed.

On Lesser Evil, Airick Woodhead has found the perfect balance between his more experimental ethereal noise and danceable pop hooks. We can say with some certainty that this is some of the most original music being made today and that nothing else in the world that sounds like this. It’s solid from beginning to end, and despite it sounding so new and different, you’ll find yourself singing along to it at unexpected times. We excepted big things from this debut, and Woodhead has most certainly delivered.

Everyone in the Canadian music community is aware of Sean Nicholas Savage‘s reputation as an incredible songwriter. He’s released ten-odd albums, each of which contains countless treasures, so it’s no surprise to see such luminaries as Doldrums, Majical Cloudz, Mac DeMarco, Pat Jordache, and so many more covering his tunes on this brand new compilation, available for free from Arbutus Records. Sean is set to release an important full-length in 2013, one that he’s been working on for over a year (a long time for him).

Silent Shout is presenting Sean’s performance at Double Double Land in Toronto on Feb 15, with performances from AGOR of Blue Hawaii and Sexy Merlin, and Cadence Weapon and Doldrums DJing.
