Philadelphia by way of Brooklyn experimental electronic producer hectic zeniths first came to our attention way back in 2012. His song, i might drown was on constant repeat here at The iM.
Today we take a trip down memory lane and (re)introduce you to a song that was part of a defining era in indie-electronic music. Check it out in the embed below and don’t forget to hit up hectic zeniths over on Bandcamp… thankfully, he is still making music.
The year is 2010 and the indie music scene is hitting its stride here in Toronto. Enter John O’Regan and his D’Urbervilles (pre-Matters) side-project Diamond Rings… everything points to a bright future for indie-show-goers in the T-Dot. That said, we’re not sure there’s a song that reminds us more of that time period like All Yr Songs; a track we will never tire of.
Check it out in the embed and hit up John’s most recent project JG Ballad at the ‘listen’ link below. There’s some killer covers on there only he could create… and we mean that in the best way possible.
It’s hard to believe it’s been more than 10 years since this song came out. Pen To The Paper remains in rotation here at The iM and as far as we’re concerned, this song is a major part of a defining era in Canadian indie music.
Unfortunately, Parlovr haven’t made any new music in recent years but we’ll always have this beauty to look back upon. Check it out below.
Daniel Benjamin might be one of the hardest working artists in all of music; it appears as though he is always cooking something up. His electronic-dance-pop project Moon King has been around since the early days of The iM and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Below you’ll find our favourite Moon King cut, Only Child, courtesy of our weekly TBT. And, while you’re at it, Daniel has an infectious new song out, Seconds From You with Detroit’s Vespre. Hit up the ‘watch’ link below for more.
The year 2009 was an incredible one for us; The iM had just started out, indie music was at an all time high and Guelph’s Green Go were creating songs to make you want to get up and dance your ass off.
Unfortunately, the band is no longer around but they have left us with some musical memories that won’t be forgotten any time soon. Check out Brains For Breakfast in the embed below.
Dream-pop outfit Low Motion Disco were a rather mysterious duo from the land of chocolate and cheese… Switzerland. They weren’t around very long but what they left for us, was a beautiful piece of music in the form of Things Are Gonna Get Easier. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
Another post from The iM vault. This time we (re)introduce you to Toronto post-rock outfit Mimico. Their song Man From Japan was a personal favourite of ours back in the day and it never seems to get old.
Have a listen in the embed below if you know what’s good. Fortunately, unlike a lot of our throwbacks, Mimico is still alive and well. Go check them out at the links below and show your support.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane as we (re)introduce you to Of Oceans who hails from Detroit, Michigan. Not much is known about the artist but what we do know is, In Love, Not Limbo was on constant repeat at The iM when we were first introduced to it way back in 2010.
Have a listen for yourself and you’ll hear why; ambient electronic at its best.
