DIANA – Confession

DIANA CONFESSION

Ivy Mairi – All Around Me

IVY MAIRI

Thanks to our friend Kieran Adams of Toronto band DIANA for the heads up on this glowing new track that he produced for his Toronto homie Ivy Mairi. "All Around Me" is an airy, soft-focus gem that Ivy says is "a bit of a departure" from her folkier material, and she arrives at a very sweet spot on the pop spectrum, landing somewhere amid the silky, elegantly floating vocals of Jessy Lanza, vintage chillwave (RIP), and DIANA's woozier/dreamier jams...

Jessy Lanza x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: orphx – what will burn

ORPHX

Christie Sealey is one half of Orphx and Rich Oddie is the other. They are both from Hamilton. Christie and I share a studio where I do music and she has a painting studio. She is one of my best friends and (similar to Jason) is another synthesis wizard I have the fortune of being friends with. She has helped me with studio and software problems more times than I can count. -- Jessy Lanza

premiere: Mind Bath – Bad Timing

Mind Bath - Bad Timing (3)

A couple months back we posted up a "floating, intoxicatingly languid" breakup jam from Montreal artist June Moon, aka Forever, who makes up half of tropical house/paradise party duo Cafe Lanai. Not to be outdone, her bandmate in the group also makes sensual, intensely yearning slow-jams as Mind Bath, and will release his proper debut single this week on Cascine's singles imprint CSCN...

download an entrancing new mixtape from Canadian duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven

YOULL NEVER GET TO HEAVEN

A few weeks late on this one, but this dreamily melancholy new mixtape from London, Ontario, duo You'll Never Get To Heaven has become our soothing, go-to late-night jam over the last couple of evenings. The group says the mix is made up of "moody, minimal and ambient selections, international in scope, mostly circa late 70s-mid 80s". The highlight though: they've also slipped a track from their forthcoming new LP (the follow-up to one of our favorite records of 2014) into the mix, and it's lovely. Download the mixtape below:
