Flying Hórses dropped the music video for Isolation.
Shot in the Canadian Rockies and in upstate New York, Isolation is the latest music video from Canadian composer Flying Hórses, whose upcoming album Reverie is due out on February 22, 2019, via Bonsound.
The atmosphere of the video successfully captures the feeling of loneliness after a break-up, while the majesty of the landscape conveys that isolation can always be overcome, in the end.
For the Isolation video, Jade Bergeron (the musician behind the Flying Hórses moniker) worked with director Dylan Toombs.

Today mouse on the keys dropped a stand alone single called Circle.
Their new song “Circle” takes an eager turn toward a heavier, climactic post-rock style of composition. Written by drummer Akira Kawasaki and guest guitarist Yuri Kamo, “Circle” draws inspiration from influential artists like Pat Metheny, And So I Watch You From Afar, and The Mercury Program.

Said the Whale – Cascadia [Review]

Been a fan of Said the Whale as long as I can remember.
Surprised on the announcement of their sixth album Cascadia which came out on February 8, 2019.
It wasn’t that long that they were out promoting their fifth album as long as your eyes are wide which came out in 2017.
In my opinion, that album was more dark and heavy emotional album and pushed the envelope on their sound and lyrics IE Miscarriage.
What is significant about this sixth album is that they jumped ship from Hidden Pony to Arts & Crafts.
Probably to get a better distribution deal and broader appeal to open the doors for outside of Canada.

This came accidentally through my email and luckily saw the show on January 22, 2019.
Los Angeles’ Business of Dreams is the project by Corey Cunningham (Mike Krol) is all about emotional catharsis.
The second album Ripe for Anarchy is a through-and-through ode to indie pop.
11 wonderful dreamy, breezy and upbeat catchy poppy lyrical music that makes you want to think about summer and lie on the grass looking at the clouds.
Parts of the music is reminisced to 90s New Order a-la “Regret” or something British indie pop from the late 80s/early 90s.
It is early in 2019 and hopefully make this on the best of 2019 list.
Ripe for Anarchy is out on Slumberland Records.
Best tracks:

  • Chasing that Feeling
  • Ripe for Anarchy
  • N.R.E.A.M.
  • Naive Scenes
  • Keep The Blues Away

I’d give Ripe for Anarchy:
/10.
