2012 has been the strongest year in memory for Canadian electronic pop. Established artists started new electronic projects, amazing new talents appeared seemingly out of nowhere, and one of our shining stars became a superstar recognized the world over. Canada is clearly at the epicenter of the zeitgeist – it’s a testament to the unbelievable talent in this country that we have 100 songs to present to you as the best of the year, and STILL had to exclude so many excellent tracks.
Montreal and Toronto may still have the most representatives of any Canadian city, but dark electro is thriving everywhere, from Halifax to Calgary, Ottawa to Vancouver, and exciting new hotbeds appearing in London, Ontario, and Grande Prairie, Alberta. We’re not too exclusively nationalist here at Silent Shout, so border states (minus NYC) appear too, with artists from Minneapolis, Seattle, and Brattleboro, Vermont making our list.
A huge thank you to all our readers, the folks who attend our events, and the bands that make brilliant music across this land for making 2012 an unforgettable year for us. Here’s to an even bigger 2013 for Canadian electronic music.
25. Holy Family – My Kayfabe Babe
Incredible dreamy synth pop from the Toronto/Montreal wunderduo Prince Innocence. No word yet on an album, but this is now something we all need.
Silkken Laumann – House Of Common Problems
Prince Innocence – Girls
Moon King – Sleeping in My Car
So many great things to see today at Pop Montreal!

Obviously all of these artists are worth seeing, but decisions have to be made. Doldrums and Moon King at Club Balattou is probably the best bet of the night. Warm Myth is also playing and Austra is DJing, just making it that much more amazing. Silkken Laumann at O Patro Vys and Prince Innocence at the Royal Phoenix are our other can’t-miss picks of the night. See whatever you can!
We’ve been pretty obsessed with this song since it was released last week. Featuring Josh McIntyre of Little Girls and Talvi Faustmann, the band has this song and a three song EP to their name. Chilly, smooth electro-pop. Those are suitable. The song is available for free off their bandcamp.
