🎧 LOMA – ‘Given A Sign’

LOMA is the work of Emily Cross, Dan Duszynski and Shearwater‘s Jonathan Meiburg. Their latest album, Don’t Shy Away, was recently released on Sub Pop Records. If we’d known what we were going to hear on our very first listen today, we’d have bought this thing the exact minute it came out. Let’s just say, it’s a musical journey, you won’t soon forget.

Check out our favourite album track Given A Sign in the embed below, and be sure to hit up their socials for more going forward. This is a band you don’t want to sleep on folks; Brian Eno didn’t.

🎧 Arms And Sleepers – ‘So Much Sometimes’

We first came across experimental-electronic duo Arms And Sleepers way back in the fall of 2009. Their album Matador was on heavy rotation and one song in particular really struck a chord with us at the time, The Architekt. Many albums and extended-plays later, the band is set to release their latest effort, Current Powers Of Movement, on October 2nd.

Check out the first single from the EP, So Much Sometimes, in the embed and be prepared for a musical journey you won’t soon forget. And, while we have your attention, show these guys some love over on their socials below.

🎧 Michael Scott Dawson – ‘All The Things This Isn’t’

To say that we were big fans on Regina indie-pop outfit Library Voices back in the day, would be a serious understatement. We haven’t heard much from the band in recent years but what we do have is a new record coming out from one of the members, Michael Scott Dawson. This is a completely different direction musically and we like what we hear. Now, it’s time to share it with you.

“In late 2017 Dawson suffered an unexpected bout of vertigo. For the better part of 18 months the thought of working on music felt impossible. Some days just the thought of listening to music felt impossible. As the symptoms started to recede, he rediscovered a love for close listening. Before long he had set up a makeshift studio at home and started work on what would become Nowhere, Middle of. Reflecting on the project, Dawson states “I knew I wanted to rely as much on scotch tape as a computer.”

Check out the first single All The Things This Isn’t in the embed below and be sure to hit up his socials for more leading up to the release. The new album, Nowhere, Middle Of drops October 16th via We Are Busy Bodies.

🎧 PREMIERE: New River Beach – ‘The Right Place’

From Green Go to Paradise Animals and newly discovered Favours, Toronto musician Mark Andrade has always been connected to The Indie Machine in one way or another. So, it only seems fitting that we get to introduce you to his latest project with his wife Marney Isaac, New River Beach.

In the spirit of Caribou’s ‘Can’t Do Without You’, The Right Place is a song that evokes much emotion; rolling synths and hazy vocals creating a sonic landscape you won’t soon forget. With its pure simplicity, from beginning to end, The Right Place leaves us yearning for more.

Isaac plays almost all of the instruments on their debut track. After laying down all the parts to the song, Andrade used his production skills and sampling techniques to help shape the pieces into a cohesive whole.

“We recorded “The Right Place” in our home studio in the evenings after our kids went to sleep. New River Beach is a place near Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada – Marney’s home town. We’ve been reflecting on the concept of well-being and its connection to place. From playing a warm Juno, to a washed-out trumpet and bass guitar, the act of playing together, especially during these isolated and uncertain times, became a place of its own.”

Rumour has it the duo are hard at work on their follow-up single, so stay tuned for more on their socials. Until then, bask in the glory that is The Right Place… headphones are highly recommended.
