Happy Birthday To Me (MBF® Canadian music Treatzzza Pizza)

I’m 26 years old today. AM I MATURE YET??????**

 

**No

 

My mom gave birth to me when she was 27. That’s one year from now. To put it in perspective, the other night, I ate an entire box of pizza and washed it down with a Stiegl Grapefruit Radler (the perfect grapefruit draught for summer). The only thing I am close to becoming pregnant with is most of a red velvet birthday cake decorated to look like my boyfriend’s face. Yes, I will upload a picture of us eating him. Yes, The Edible Woman is one of my favourite books.

Here are some cool tunes by Canadian bands to celebrate my b-day.

Are you ready to mellow?

New York’s Gingerly’s make 80’s-inspired indie-pop with a splash of shoegaze. Their debut 7″ Jumprope EP is out today (July 8th) via Shelflife.

Speaking of shoegaze, Halifax’s Kestrels just released a new EP The Moon is Shining Our Way on July 1st via Sonic Unyon. They’re doing a limited run of 300 vinyl (half black, half blue).

Toronto’s Foxes in Fiction sound a bit like taking a Beach House album and playing it quietly on mono on a lonely deserted subway platform. Shadow’s Song is the first single off their upcoming 7-track 12″ Ontario Gothic out Sept 22nd via Orchid Tapes (his own label). Warren Hildebrand writes:

Ontario Gothic is an album comprised of seven songs dealing with individual instances of loss, grief and the process of healing over the five years following my younger brother’s death in 2008 and how I navigated life in the wake of that tragedy. It was recorded in Toronto and New York between fall 2011 and spring 2014.

The track features Owen Pallett on violin, and Hildebrand will be opening for Pallett on his fall US tour. The limited edition (500 copy) pre-order features 250 translucent coke-bottle green / opaque doublemint green vinyl pressed together and 250 translucent sea blue / opaque cyan blue vinyl pressed together. Lovely!

Soft vocals, folksy guitar, quiet drums. Birmingham’s Dead Crow Pirates reminds me a lot of Tunng.

Paris’s MOODOÏD make fantastic psych-pop akin to Foxygen. I really like the music video for Je suis la montagne, originally released on their self-titled EP on Sept 1st 2013, and will be included on their upcoming album Le monde MÖO (August 1st via Entreprise).

Simple pop songs can be effective! San Diego’s Inspired & the Sleep just released a new track on June 25th.

I love this Tom Misch and Carmody duet off their new collaborative EP, coming out sometime in July. Did I mention that Tom Misch is only 18?

I’m predisposed to enjoy anything produced by the weird art-pop scene from Halifax since I am forever in love with Each Other and Long Long Long. This track comes from the Sled Island compilation album, which is 100% solid. I’ll be playing a lot of the tracks off the comp for my next episode of Indie-licious.  It also appears on their 2014 Tour Cassette, found here on Bandcamp.
