Written by on 7 May 2020

Rollicking through the air seemingly in slow-motion in “Tracii’s Ballad,” gliding into overdriven sonic ribbonry in “South of Yesterday,” the beats often cultivate the emotional foundation of the music in Izzie’s Caravan’s Zephyrs even more than lyrics do. In this sophomore effort from the blues-rockers, Izzie’s Caravan get cerebral with their songwriting and apply psychedelic elements to […]

Sébastien Lacombe’s “Gold in Your Soul” (SINGLE)

Written by on 28 April 2020

Though subtle in its first appearance in the song, the vocal harmony in Sébastien Lacombe’s “Gold in Your Soul” is at the backbone of every provocative beat in this latest single from the Montreal-stationed singer/songwriter, and while I wouldn’t say it’s the only element here that qualifies as spellbinding in tone and design, it’s definitely […]

SoloS’ release self-titled EP

Written by on 24 April 2020

Even when skirting the shadows of tracks like “The Distance Between Us” and “Painted Veil,” there’s scarcely a moment in SoloS’ self-titled EP where the beat isn’t responsible for the bulk of the record’s experimental appeal.

“A Long Time Ago” by Captain Dane-O

Written by on 2 April 2020

In his single “A Long Time Ago,” enigmatic singer/songwriter Captain Dane-O fuses together elements of post-punk’s surrealism and conservative but biting guitar melodies with an Echo & the Bunnymen-style psychedelia, also of the minimalist persuasion, and although the resulting cocktail is anything but ‘mainstream’ in stylization, it undeniably makes for one of the more spellbinding […]
