Touring is the hardest part of the job, logistically, for Montreal’s Young Galaxy. The band is comprised of partners Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay, and unofficially their two children. The band can’t take the kids when they travel cross-continent, so they are currently staying in British Columbia with a relative, dropped off just before the […]

Panel Releases Their First Compilation LP Featuring the Best of London’s Underground Producers

After the closing of London’s Fabric nightclub, I momentarily questioned the city’s dance music scene. Was this the first domino to fall? Scandals relating to drug abuse are sadly not rare, though shutting the venue down abruptly wasn’t the answer. Of course, looking back I was foolish to react with such pessimism; thanks to the […]

Get a first listen of TR/ST newest song “Bicep” and don’t miss him at FYF

Toronto-based artist TR/ST has revealed a first listen from a yet untitled release in the form of the industrial synth-powered track, “Bicep.” Moving forward with the dark electro-pop that garnered his self-titled debut and the subsequent Joyland a cult following, the man behind the provocative atmospherics Robert Alfons took isolation to the extreme in writing much of […]

An Interview with Shy Girls — we talk debut album and preventing himself from being pigeon-holed as alt-R&B

Shy Girls Set to Release Debut Album “Salt” via Hit City Records on January 20th   Here’s a riddle for you: If twenty people record demos on a synthesizer and guitar in their bedrooms, and someone labels it all alt-R&B, does anyone hear the difference between them? At the expense of some really great DIY artists, alternative R&B […]

Cherub at Fonda Theatre
Cherub bleed gold, piss excellence at Fonda Theatre show

Like the glitzy electronica purveyors that they are, Cherub lit up the Fonda Theatre last Friday night and left the walls dripping with their overly-saturated synth creations. Led by enigmatic duo Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, Cherub pulse in the same vein of music and style as Chromeo, right down to their goofy, R&B/hip-hop romanticisms […]

Hot New Music: Ricky Eat Acid’s “Talk To You Soon” comes to stunning tangible life at Union

You could call Ricky Eat Acid (birth name: Sam Ray) an OG at this point – the Maryland-based musician has been cranking out a singular, all-encompassing form of laptop electronica since 2011, far predating the current wave of bedroom experimentalists. His latest, the Terrible Records-released Talk To You Soon distills many of the styles he’s flipped […]
