Check out Edmonton’s No Museums for their music video “The Surfer Leaves”.
Taken from their EP called Surfers To The Beach which drops on May 19, 2017.
Hard to describe this track, which is a cross between 90s fuzz rock or 80s new wave a-la Joy Division.
Also the EP is free to download for your enjoyment.

Kelly Lee Owens – Kelly Lee Owens [Review]

While trying to find whatever music to play on my radio show.
I accidentally found this artist on this site and when I listened to this album.
I was blown away by the music!
This is the British artist Kelly Lee Owens with her self-titled debut album.
Heare is the details:
An album that bridges the gaps between cavernous techno, spectral pop, and krautrock’s mechanical pulse, the 27­ year ­old Londoner has made a debut album brimming with exploratory wonder, establishing a personal aesthetic that is as beguiling as it is thrillingly familiar.
With the popularity of EDM from the likes of The xx, Austra and Grimes.
This album is a mix of dreamy electronic sounds to hard-pulse electronic dance beats.
The standout track is Anxi which features Jenny Hval.
I call her the British version of Jessy Lanza, Caribou, Blue Hawaii and Austra mixed into one!
This one of the surprising albums to check out in 2017!

Best tracks:

  • S.O
  • Anxi feat. Jenny Hval
  • Lucid
  • Evolution
  • Throwing Lines
  • Keep Walking

I’d give this album:

Midday Swim – Hold on Tight [Music Video]

Toronto band Midday Swim dropped their music video for Hold on Tight.
Here is the details about the music video:
It’s the heart of our upcoming EP Climbing Out of Caves.
The surrealist-fantasy feel of the video came from the director, Pedja Milosavlijevic, and our mutual admiration of films like “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”, “Pulp Fiction”, and “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, as well as the general work of directors such as David Lynch, Wes Anderson, Emir Kusturica and some classic Spielberg.
