Today Luka released the new single Quick Reflex.
It is taken from the upcoming album What Kind of Animal which drops on November 28, 2017.
What is “quick reflex”? It’s words written on a baseball-cap that my brother used to wear. A couple years ago I started wearing it and not knowing what the phrase referred to, I started to imagine the hat as a time machine. The song travels through the ‘20-something autumn moons’ of my childhood. In the pauses between the lyrics, I see flashes of my brothers and I making films, practicing kung-fu moves, and all the imaginary landscapes of my youth.”

RIYL Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, The Magnetic Fields, Nap Eyes
A reminder that Luka will be in Ottawa on November 25th at Pressed.
I was kind of surprised to get an email from Chris Ho.
Apparently, the Vancouver musician recently came off of hiatus and will be releasing a new record called Places You’ve Been which came out on September 3, 2017.
Have a listen to the single For Now.
Nice folk-pop tune to get through this hump Wednesday.
You can call Chad VanGaalen crazy and quirky, but he sure puts out a fine record.
Light Information which is his sixth album on Subpop for the USA and Flemish Eye for Canada.
It follows the same formula from previous albums like Shrink Dust and Diaper Island with its lo-fi, glitchy and psychedelic pop rock music with lyrics that can masquerade as something dark.
Does it break any ground? I don’t know, Chad is Chad.
Light Information is listening through a journey of what the future brings us into this bleak and crazy world we are living.
- Mind Hijackers Curse
- Mystery Elements
- Old Heads
- Faces Lit
- Pine and Clover
I’d give Light Information:
Apparently, the email I got from Nick Ferrio went into the spam pile.
I am really liking this track from his upcoming album Soothsayer.
This is a big change from Nick, moving away from the folk country music.
Getting into 70s power-pop sound reminiscent of Elvis Costello and T-Rex.
Have a listen to Soothsayer, album comes out on September 29, 2017.
