Humans – Possession

Humans Traps

We last wrote about Humans following the release of Avec Mes Mecs (October 2010) and Humans (January 2011), both of which we had been crushing on for a while.  Now, we have a new love interest – the 10-track album Traps (March 2012),which includes three remixes.  Recently, the Vancouver-based production/performance duo Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq have opened for Junior Boys, How to Dress Well, Grimes, and more.  Their first two singles “De Ciel” and “Horizon” off this new album are now followed by “Possession,” for which they just released a trailer for an upcoming video.  A full-length from Humans is in the works.

Bear Mountain: XO


‘electro’ ‘dance’ ‘synth’ – three of our favorite words.

we fell hard and fast the first time we heard the new EP by Bear Mountain. the full 7 track EP released today and its allllll amazing – start with Two Step and then make your way to Congo or the other way around:

Bear Mountain – Congo

its like pringles or rainbows or swimming until you cant feel your legs anymore but the water still feels amazing so you stay in longer. i dont care if you’re rolling your eyes at our half awake/half dreaming commentary – just press play.

New Album: Snowden


Well hello again.  I love this band and I love this voice.  I wrote about Snowden when they released an EP a little over two years ago, which was supposed to start a bit of buzz for a full-length due out later that year.  Well fast-forward to now, and we finally have it – No One In Control, out this Fall on Serpents & Snakes.  The band kicked off a mini tour a few days ago in New York City to support the launch of the upcoming record, which is their second full-length.  Here’s the first single “The Beat Comes”…

London’s Py was recently remixed by Welsh duo Face + Heel (Luke Taylor and Sinead McMillan). XLR8R cited Face + Heel as “intricate electronic compositions with an acute focus on songcraft.”

Zambri – All You Maybes


Love this track from the sister duo’s debut LP ‘House of Baasa.’ The video is directed and animated by Johnny Woods. I often find with Zambri tracks that I’ll post a song having immediately liked it but then as it plays on, I get predictably obsessed and repeat the rest of the week//month//year//forreevveerrr
