Toronto’s electronic pop duo Electric Youth (producer Austin Garrick and vocalist Bronwyn Griffin) are set to release their debut album Innerworld on September 30th with Last Gang Records in Canada. The album features 11 tracks, including their recent pulsing song, “Innocence“, their wildly popular track from Drive, “A Real Hero” (a collaboration with French producer College) and “Runaway”, which just hit the blogs this week. Check it out below.
Slowly getting back into it here, as a weekend off turned into a 3 day absence from posting on the blog. Sometimes, its hard to find the motivation to stream a hundred tracks looking for a gem to post. Yesterday, I just didn’t have it in me.
Today? Yeah, I’m loving what I’ve found in my e-mail and in the feeds I follow. Case in point the latest from Brooklyn-based quartet Body Language. “4 Real” is from the band’s newest EP “Infinite Sunshine” (set for release August 12th) and features summery funk of the 70’s with elements of modern pop and electronic music. And go.
Magic Hands is Alex Badham of experimental pop band Aleks and the Ramps and lyrical folk songstress Lucy Roleff. The music video for ‘Limousine’, directed by Alex Badham, is a glamour meets gore ode to contemporary dance and the at times sinister competition of gymnastic sports. The clip was filmed over two days during winter in a frigid basketball stadium featuring professional dancers Hana Dawson and Jack Traylen.
Included in my “Trending” Playlist last week on Aux was the latest new music from The Rural Alberta Advantage called “Terrified”. The band will release their highly-anticipated third album, Mended With Gold, on September 30th. The twelve-track album was recorded at Toronto’s Candle Recording with the band’s long-time live engineer Matt Lederman (Hayden, !!!, Besnard Lakes) alongside co-producer Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Austra, F*cked Up).
