A. A. Wallace self-describes as “bedroom disco”, and we think that captures him perfectly. Simple production that still makes you want to pull out your best dance moves as the album glides between pop grooves and deep distorted voice samples. Opening track “Offline” makes a technology sabbatical sound like barrels of fun, but without the internet you couldn’t press play and jam out to the song. Maybe save unplugging and going outside until after you’ve had a few listens. You can buy (disambiguation) over at Bandcamp.
Here’s a brand new project from Lindsay Dobbin, previously known for making experimental field recording folk as Broken Deer in Whitehorse. Her new project is called Unseen World and these first three tracks are hot off the presses. Very exciting experimental electronic pop ranging from the bombastic Doldrums-ish explosions of “Golden Energy” to the beautiful droney delay of “What You Want.” Favourite new Halifax artist!
“Golden Energy” and “Night Horse” are both going to be on a VHS split with Halifax’s Organ Magic coming out this summer. Can’t wait!
Dreamy electro hip hop from Halifax. The Wayo video is hypnotizing!
Halifax/Toronto electronic noise artist Jesse Matthews aka J fm is known for being a junk collector in the making of his music and visual art. He’s about to release a self-titled LP, and “Ez2luv”, the lead single, is composed of alternating grinding and clattering textures and vaguely soothing dulcet tones amid chaos. An abattoir lullabye? The video, an excerpt of found VHS pornography, matches the track’s sense of unsettling contentment well.
J fm, some of which was recorded on a remote control boat in the middle of a duck pond, will be available for pre-order in early March from Halifax’s Divorce Records.
The Hood Internet – Pyramidspeak (Purity Ring vs Frank Ocean)
The Hood Internet, always finding great unexpected combinations. If this remix floats your boat you just might be into the collaboration Purity Ring did with Danny Brown.
