Wow, this is very good. As Michael_ alluded to above, I was expecting a percussion-heavy electronic track with a tribal touch. Instead I found a warm, melodic song with a deep, glowing bassline. The arpeggiated brass synth at various points is almost reminiscent of Portishead’s “The Rip,” but this Liars track is not nearly as ominous. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Colour me intrigued.

Wow, I feel like I’m 12 again. That list brings back all kinds of memories.

It’s amazing that even after all these years, these two wreckers of civilisation are still at it and just as relevant as ever. It’s also nice to see them embracing the next wave of subversive musicians like Nik Kolk and the rest of Factory Floor. I’m eagerly awaiting “Transverse.”

Ah, my beloved Roxy Music. I thoroughly enjoyed this remix and video.

Nice cover. I can’t wait to hear some new material from Austra; “Feel It Break” was one of my favourite albums of 2011.

That’s exactly what they’re doing. Blood is quite the commodity these days.

“Never Say Die” touched me in a very strange way. As a whole, I definitely enjoyed “Reign of Terror” more than I wanted to admit at first. After hearing it all the way through a few times now, I can say that I’m really liking it and I’ll be listening to it a whole lot more during the upcoming months.

I prefer her other singles, but that probably speaks more to my lovelorn disposition today than to the track itself. This is a seemingly fun and playful way to garner some good press on this St. Valentine’s day. Now when’s that album coming out, Charli? I’m sure I’m not the only one anticipating her first LP.

Je dois admettre que je n’ai jamais entendu de Mlle. Sokolinski mais sa musique est plutôt belle. Ca ferait de la bonne musique pour un Dimanche matin paresseux durant l’été.

I find this album, much like Trust’s “TRST,” to be utterly bewitching and intoxicating. Both of these albums do much to confirm my suspicion that Canadians are making some of the best subversive electronic pop around.
