Silver Pools

Premiere: Silver Pools – Farmhouse

We’ve been fascinated by Toronto dream pop explorer Todd Macdonald aka Silver Pools before, and we’re very excited to premiere his newest single “Farmhouse”, half of a two-track 10″ coming out this Friday, and the artist’s first new work since his highly memorable debut full-length of last year, Memoirs of an Oblong Sphere.

“Farmhouse” sees Macdonald heading in a more electronic direction with the help of a few comrades, and is joined on this song by Dustin Good on modular synth, with minimal techno producers Matt and Mark Thibideau co-producing the track. A dark and contemplative listen, it’s a spacious electro-ballad thats full of details and beautiful reverb tails. A lovely, weightless song that seems to float in zero gravity, but it’s not without a heavy heart.

The Bleach Cloud/Farmhouse 10-inch is available for ore-order now, digitally or on vinyl, from Bandcamp. And if you’re in Toronto, catch Silver Pools for the release show at Burdock this Friday, and he also has some summer European tour dates, listed at Bandcamp.

MP3: Silver Pools – Carbon Cadence

Silverpools-carbon-cadence

Silver Pools is a brand new project from Canadian music scene vet Todd Macdonald, who played in baroque pop group the Winks, and currently plays drums for the wonderful Loom. His debut solo single “Carbon Cadence” is a deep, reflective, ambient pop gem with a repeating guitar hook that will lazily float about inside your brain all day.

It’s an extremely promising beginning for Silver Pools, who will be releasing his first album Memoirs of An Oblong Sphere sometime soon. Until then, Carbon Cadence, again and again. Download it for free from Soundcloud.
