Montreal electro-pop duo Milk & Bone (Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin) craft ethereal soundscapes topped with sweet vocals, showcased in a world of black and white for their music video for “New York”. These gals were one of my favourite performances last week at M for Montreal, and with their debut album set for release in early 2015 they are definitely an act to watch.
Actually, please do listen to this beauty from UK artist Leo Stannard. Lior tipped me to his talent back in August on “Why Don’t We” and recently I’ve been seeing his name popping up around the blogs with his song (and video) for “Please Don’t”, off his Notions EP. Impressive guitar skills and a memorable melody, yup, that’ll get you on this blog. Video and track below.
I’m taking a moment from a pretty productive morning to set my eyes out the window and daydream, listening to “Sweat” by LA/Australia artist RY X. The song is available as a single with “Love Like This” as the b-side.
Here’s some new music from Montreal three-piece Le Couleur off their upcoming release of Dolce Désir EP (out in Feb 2015). “Concerto Rock” follows the bands’ signature sexy, groove-driven dance style, showcasing the sultry French vocals of Quebecois-Vietnamese singer Laurence Giroux-Do. The video was directed by up-and-coming artist Ganesh Baron Aloir using only analog video technology.
The group is set to perform later this week as part of the M for Montreal Festival with a show at Club Lambi this Friday, November 21.
I’m just not good at figuring out what music videos mean. Although, do you really have to know, to appreciate one that is artistic, beautiful and a great compliment to a song?
Here’s the treatment for “Bones” featuring some intriguing couples shielding each other from something, created by James Willis of Bullion Productions (known for his work with Disclosure and Katy B).
London folks, Cash+David are set to debut their live show at Birthdays on Nov. 18th. Go and tell me how it goes.
