It’s been a minute since we’ve posted one of our throwback mixtapes, but today is as good a day as any, seeing as it’s a Thursday! This one goes way back to 2011 when the indie-dance scene was at an all-time high. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
Indie-electronic outfit Glass Candy hail from Portland, Oregon. They’ve been on our radar for some time now, and one song in particular still gets regular play here at The iM, Warm In The Winter.
Take a trip down memory lane us in the embed below and be sure to follow the band over on their socials for more going forward.
฿₳₮Ⱨ ₴₳Ⱡ₮₴ ₵Ø₥₱łⱠ₳₮łØ₦, 𝕓𝕠𝕘 𝕓𝕣𝕦𝕟𝕔𝕙 features a collective of artists (including Toronto favourites Bile Sister, Phèdre and Doomsquad) who have come together to raise awareness for LGBTQ+ and medically vulnerable individuals at Rikers and ICE detention.
“Proceeds go directly towards paying bail to get trans people out of prison. This is especially important right now with the influx of arrests at BLM protests and COVID hitting prisons really hard.”
The compilation is an incredibly eclectic mix of songs that we can’t seem to get enough of; in fact, it’s been on repeat all morning here at The iM. Hit up the link below to grab the album and help donate to a very worthy cause or head over to the Emergency Release Fund for more info.
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.
