Creepy nightmare music from Scotland’s most famous honorary Canadians.
It’s mostly dusty terrain and broken-down shacks, here, ’til you hit 3:30 and you’re taken for a ride on the back of the giant white dog from The NeverEnding Story. And that mountainous area, just before and after the one-minute mark? It’s totally the spot where Kirk fought the Gorn in 1967.
Boards Of Canada release their new album, Tomorrow’s Harvest, in June.
Kishi Bashi shared his latest video today, and it really is lovely.
The latest release by the of Montreal and Regina Spektor violinist (as well as Jupiter One founder) “Song for the Sold” pairs soaring strings with beautiful anime by Tomoki Kurogi – simply a treat to watch.
Catching up with long-forgotten faves.
According to their latest bio, The Northwest Division went on indefinite hiatus a few years ago; our loss—they were a promising young outfit (we’re talking about the Toronto-based Northwest Division, here—there’s an American band and a hip-hop album that share the name).
“Whitehorse” was on 2008’s Of Which I’m The Master EP (their only release). The video’s footage is taken from the Steve McQueen documentary On Any Sunday.
“Bring back the silent film!” I’ve often cried. Thanks for listening, Air Marshall Landing!
Classic silent movie elements abound in the Michael Schmidt directed video: the evil villain, the helpless damsel and the hero who will save the day – but things aren’t always as they seem. There are plot twists in this video, just wait and see.
Formed in Ontario and now based in Toronto, the three brothers from different mothers will be releasing their album You Used To Be Me on June 4. You can download “Little Town” *here*.

Transporting precious cargo is never an easy task; it can be cumbersome, and as Berlin’s kool thing can attest, the question of who gets to be in charge of the valuable merchandise is often answered with a fist fight.
But what’s in the bag? As we watch the chilly trek through the snow covered woods, the moving parcel hints that it may not be any ordinary package. Is it a good idea to find out? Would it be best to leave sleeping dogs lie?
Sometimes it’s just better not to ask.
It only makes sense to start off the first long weekend of the summer (yes, I know that technically it’s still spring) with the first song of the summer. Dock side radios, patios and car stereos will be playing this non-stop over the next few days, so you may as well embrace it now.
While Daft Punk have yet to release an official video, the number of YouTube tributes has made it incredibly obvious that fans are patiently waiting. This one by “MyMusicalTalentTM” is a personal favourite.
Happy long weekend!
You’d expect to see a question mark at the end of that album title, but there isn’t one on the cover, so we’re not adding it (shame on everyone who plopped one in on their own accord).
Are You Going to Stand There And Talk Weird All Night is The National’s High Violet re-imagined as an acid house rollercoaster—danceable, but depressingly bleak. A sample chorus: “Son, don’t let your family down.”
Valleys refuse to approach anything here in a conventional manner. The album’s first single—and arguably its best track—is placed as its last song (how often do you see that?), and they’ve tacked three minutes of clunking dissonance on to the end of it that, while disconcerting, somehow manages to improve it.
Primarily for insomniacs. Check out a live performance of “See the Moon?” down below.
