Pick a Piper – All Her Colours (Karl Snyder Mix)
Here’s something new from a producer whose work we greatly admire and miss hearing from. Kidstreet‘s Karl Snyder has done a great job immersing himself in the world of Pick a Piper‘s magnificent “All Her Colours.” Upbeat, layered and lovely. Don’t forget to check out that original, one of our favourites of February.

Brand new video from our favourite uptempo electronic pop team Kidstreet. It’s great, and so’s the song, no surprises there.
There is just so much news about Silent Shout favourites Kidstreet this week! They just released a video for their recent single Best Birthday. Now we know what’s it’s like to be a glass? Even more exciting is that the band announced this week that their debut album “Fuh Yeah” will drop on September 25th! Potential best of the year? Fo’ sho’!
Today, they released “Never Coming Back,” the first official single from the album, and a free download of the b-side “Crazy.” Kidstreet, they just keep on giving.
We were so glad that this was caught on tape. Make sure that you watch it all the way to the end, because what happens is one of our favourite show moments from the past year. Remember the balloons from the Kashka video? Well, they make another appearance here. Kidstreet gave an awesome performance at April’s Silent Shout at The Garrison. It was pure, raw, genuine energy for 40 minutes. Enjoy the video!

This is the final installment of our Canadian Music (Week) Fest recommendation series. Thanks for reading!
The absolute best place to be tonight is El Mocambo for the YYZ Records Showcase. Sure, Silent Shout’s own Digits will be playing the event (9 pm), but good music is good music regardless of conflict of interest. How can you avoid a bill that includes Piper Davis (11 pm) MADRID (midnight), Kidstreet (1 am), and Humans (2 am)?
Your last stop tonight should be The Garrison to see OPOPO, the friendliest electro-rockers in Toronto. They take the stage at 3 am. Directly before them is a mysterious “Special Guest,” which usually means a big-name out-of-towner doing a surprise appearance. Don’t quote us on that, though.
There is a bunch more awesome stuff happening throughout the weekend, and we hope that you found our recommendations helpful.
This month’s Silent Shout our biggest one yet. This month we have Kidstreet, who put on the most exciting high-energy indie electro-pop show you can imagine. Expect big beats, arpeggiated synths, and soft vocals that alternate between coos and killer rhythmic syllable runs. They’ve opened for Girl Talk, Health, Thunderheist, Shout Out Out Out Out and Au Revoir Simone. Kidstreet may still be under a lot of people’s radar, but they’re going to release their first album on Nettwerk this year so that’s going to change. Just have a listen to last year’s single “X” below and you’ll get a taste of what’s in store. See them now before they blow up. Opening the night will be Kashka, which is the electronic side project of Kat Burns from Forest City Lovers. Beautiful indie pop vocals backed by synths and drum machines. It’s still only $5, we would love to see you all there!
After midnight, we the Silent Shout DJs (Digits and ARP 2600) will take over. Expect to hear:
The Cure / Liars / Joy Division / Glass Candy / Radiohead / David Bowie / Human League / Kidstreet / TV on the Radio / Young Marble Giants / Sally Shapiro / HEALTH / Woodhands / Fischerspooner / Yazoo / Future Islands / The Torrent / Tiga / Katie Stelmanis / The Smiths / Daft Punk / Bishop Morocco / Telefon Tel Aviv / Cut Copy / Iggy Pop / Cold Cave / Diamond Rings / oOoOO / LCD Soundsystem / The Knife / Junior Boys / New Order / Gary Numan / OMD / Morgan Geist / DVAS / Kraftwerk / Ladytron / The XX / Depeche Mode / Giorgio Moroder / Silly Kissers / Hercules & Love Affair / Crystal Castles / Handsome Furs / Kate Bush
