Chewii x Kaytranada – Punoni

CHEWII

Shoutout to Forever for the heads up on another beach/pool jam of the summer contender from Montreal's Chewii. "Punoni" was produced by Kaytranada -- that irresistible beat is one of the weirdest, illest, and most infectious bits from his 0...

premiere: Exit Someone – Absent Lover

ES-smallfontwhite

The insane amount of amazing music that seems to magically emanate from the orbit of our favorite extended Montreal crew -- see the stellar new jams from Forever and Cam Maclean in the past couple weeks alone, not to mention that new TOPS record -- continues with the latest romantic transmission from Thom Gillies (Vesuvio Solo, formerly TOPS) and June Moon (Forever), aka Exit Someone...

listen to TOPS’ glorious new album Sugar at the Gate

TOPS SUGAR AT THE GATE

Our album of the summer is here: Montreal's TOPS drop their best full-length yet, a timeless collection of breezy, instantly familiar pop jams (see "Petals", "Cutlass Cruiser"), intoxicating slow-burners that only reveal their true magic after you've earned it with your time and undivided attention, and a few stellar tracks that defy either of these classifications ("Dayglow Bimbo", "Topless")...

SHE DEVILS LP

premiere: TOPS announce new album Sugar at the Gate, share lead single “Petals”

TOPS SUGAR AT THE GATE

We are beyond psyched to premiere the new single from one of our favorite bands of the last half-decade or so, Montreal's TOPS. "Petals" is a sinuous, timeless soft-funk-pop jam with some of the most bitingly relatable lyrics you'll hear in 2017 -- “got a phone full of numbers and a list full of names / no one to call / not much to say, anyway” -- taken from the group's stellar forthcoming album Sugar at the Gate, which was recorded in LA at a spot called "Glamdale," a mini-mansion and former brothel out in Glendale...
