Montreal’s Haunted Clockwork collective makes weird videos and weird music. With Heinz Und Herdvelt, the two are combined to awesome effect. Here’s hoping it’s not just a one-off track from these guys, because despite the silliness, I really like the song.
Blue Hawaii‘s album Blooming Summer is being re-released, on CD for those who were too cassette-averse to purchase it last year. We love Blooming Summer – it was #4 on our year-end albums list so we highly recommend picking it up from the Arbutus shop. To sweeten the deal, there’s two bonus tracks: “Floral,” in which the duo is joined by two of the members of Braids and a remix of “Dream Electrixra” by David Carriere of Silly Kissers. Arbutustastic!
One of my favourite songs of this year. Pat Jordache hails from Montreal, is late of unsung indie superstars Sister Suvi, and his excellent album Future Songs is available on a pay-what-you-can basis at his bandcamp.
