hanging_out.jpg.size.xxlarge.promoOntario’s reigning electronic pop artist might be none other than Hamilton’s Jessy Lanza, and she’s been plenty busy since 2013’s top 10-ranking album Pull My Hair Back. But the single that dropped this week could be the best of her post-LP releases. She’s collaborating with none other than Morgan freaking Geist in a new project called The Galleria, and my goodness does “Calling Card” hit hard. More in your face than Lanza’s more subtle solo work, that aggressive bass synth makes us move! This should tide us over quite nicely until Lanza’s surely-brilliant next album.

“Calling Card” is available with b-side “Mezzanine” from iTunes.

And check out Silent Shout’s interview with Jessy from last October, where she discusses her favourite music of 2013.

Hamilton’s Jessy Lanza has had a bit of a meteoric rise to fame, and deservedly so. Could her music be any more cutting edge? For a long time she’s been the Hammer’s go-to opening artist for all the best visiting electronic musicians, like Trust, Diamond Rings, and Miracle Fortress. After signing to prestigious UK label Hyperdub and releasing Pull My Hair Back, the spotlight has been shining brightly on her. Working with Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys as co-writer and co-producer, her debut album has not left our figurative tapedecks since we got our grimy paws on it. Pitchfork hype? Yep. Resident Advisor features? Check. Toronto Star love? Uh-huh. The “Kathy Lee” music video is one of the best of the year, no question.

Pull Your Hair Back is available now from iTunes, and you won’t hear another forward-thinking electronic pop release better than it this year. Jessy plays the Garrison in Toronto on Saturday November 2, and tickets are available here.


Here are Jessy’s Silent Shoutout picks for under-the-radar music you should check out:

Huren (aka Dave Foster) is from Hamilton and is a great lyricist.

Tee Flii is one my favourite r&b singers right now and this track is produced by DJ Mustard who is also amazing. Tee Flii also calls girls “annies” which is cute.

This video was shot in Hamilton in February and captures everything I love about the city.

I am really into the new direction Bieber has taken.

This track has the power to take you to all sorts of different places.

Just an incredible cover here from Hamilton’s Jessy Lanza. Electro-r&b at its softest. Her excellent first album Pull My Hair Back is out now on Hyperdub.

This amazing new single from Hamilton talent Jessy Lanza reminds a bit of Sally Shapiro doing a Prince song. So excellent. And co-produced by Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys! Still can’t stop listening to her first single as well.

The long-awaited debut Jessy Lanza song is here! “Kathy Lee” is a remarkably spare affair, very minimal and restrained yet deeply grooving electro here. Jessy’s debut album Pull My Hair Back is coming out September 10 and was co-produced and co-written by Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys fame. Big things coming for the Hamilton artist, she’s already been Pitchforked and all. Directed by Lee Skinner.
