So far the singles off White Women (which comes out May 12th) have been super upbeat, perfect for a house party, or some personal pep-up on a Monday. Another recent Chromeosingle I’ve been enjoying is their song,Come Alive featuring Toro Y Moi- check that out here, and for all those interested, the band will be playing the Danforth Music Hall May 2nd if you’re looking to dance it out in a public space:).
I was excited to see what the Arctic Monkeys would come up with for their Arabella music video and even though I still like the song, the music video was just kind of meh…
Do I wanna Know? was so cool visually and Why’d you Only Call Me When You’re High? had that strong story line. Sometimes when I listen to a song I sort of picture a movie playing in my head where that song is the backdrop, and the Why’d you… (too lazy to type out the whole title) video lined up perfectly with the plot I had in my mind. So this may not be my favourite but I have such a soft spot for this band. I’m playing this album constantly, and fans will be happy to know they’ve added a summer Toronto date, so if you’re interested in seeing them I think there are some lawn seats still available.

Vancouver experimental drones No Spectrum are a happy accident. They are roughly collated sounds, sometimes unlistenable on their own, but when stacked and pressed against each other, they form a navigational tunnel into a fractal universe.
I stumbled across this band while aimlessly wandering on Soundcloud. Senators was uploaded a few months ago by semi-mysterious account All My Evils(aka Rónan McGrath). I can’t find any other information about No Spectrum – I suspect this is Rónan’s new project after SXA ORMBJÜMENT(Bollokscraft Records), which is some of the most soothing and delicate strange stuff you could submit your ears to. You can download that here.
Anyways, I can’t be bothered to do any more research because it is too early, I am probably going to be late for work, because I illustrated until 2am last night. When I find out more information on No Spectrum, you’ll be the first to know. Rónan, feel free to throw me a bone if I’m totally making stuff up here.
