Icelandic twin sisters Pascal Pinon just released a video for ‘Bloom’, the new single off ‘Twosomeness‘, an album produced by Alex Somers (Sígur Rós, Jonsí) and filled with delicate melodies and profound lyrics. This new video makes me want to eat candy and cupcakes – not sure it’s because of the pastel colours and subtle superimposition of images or because the song makes me so melancholic that I want some comfort food. Either way, this is a truly touching song and a beautifully made video (directed by the Russian photographer Alísa Kalyanova) and you shouldn’t miss it.
I’ve always wanted to make one of these…..
Along with my good buddy Ian Gray (middle) and twin brother Steve (left), we made this Harlem Shake video for my upcoming ride in The Ride To Conquer Cancer. I’m on the right, and yes, my brother and I have the weird ability to balance bikes on our chins.
Support me in The Ride To Conquer Cancer, June 8th-9th in Toronto. We ride 100 miles from Toronto to Hamilton, then 100km back the next day. All proceeds go to The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. My team is called ”Cycling For Cheese” and you can donate to us here. Or you can support me directly here.
I missed the boat last week on posting the brand new track (“All We Have Is Us“) from Toronto band Bravestation, off the upcoming release of “IV” (available everywhere for free download/purchase on Tuesday, May 14). But, consider me right on time posting the 2nd single, “Somewhere We Belong”.
Toronto folk, make sure you head to the Drake on Wed, May 15th to celebrate with the band the release of “IV“.
As if three hit singles would be enough for Jagwar Ma to carry them through toward their album release in June. Na-ah! Throwing out yet another lengthy track of 9minutes and 29 seconds; “Man I Need” explores a myriad of influential sounds by exposing carefully experimental arrangements. It’s meaty at best, reminding me of the way Chemical Brothers command their sound by offering the listener an experiential journey through an initial beat. They’re surely going against the current flock of releases by offering up a generous platter of flavoursome individuality. Think late 90′s breakbeat Brit Rock. Bon Appa!
I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time, now… MS MR have been one of my favourite rising stars since they released their first single ‘Hurricane’, roughly a year ago. I’ve seen them live twice and begged Lizzy to hurry up with that album that I was so anxious to get my hands on. And now that it’s finally coming out, in just a few days, I get more than I asked for: ‘Secondhand Rapture’ streaming in full, for free, before release date. Go listen to it! Go go go!
