Toronto experimental-electronic producer Romshii (pronounced Rom She) recently teamed up with Fishauf Films to create an incredible visual and auditory experience you won’t soon forget. We just came across the video and can’t wait to share it with you.
Check out Level Up featuring Felecia Kearse in the embed below and head over to Glue Gun Records to grab a copy of the latest effort, Headroom Window. And, while we have your attention, make sure you hit up his socials for more music going forward.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Geoff Barrow’s Portishead side-project Beak> but the band is back with a mesmerizing new single and EP featuring a bunch of live cuts. We can’t seem to get enough of the title track, Wulfstan, and we thought you should know about it.
“In an age where clergy in general and Bishops in particular could enjoy the good life, Wulfstan was something of a social campaigner. It’s said he once invited a host of civic dignitaries to a banquet and then turned up with hundreds of poor people, and insisted that the nobles serve them. He also had a daily ritual of washing the feet of poor people. He also campaigned vigorously against the slave trade based in the city of Bristol. At the time people who could not pay their debts were being sold into slavery in Ireland. Wulfstan spent time in Bristol, preached sermons attacking slavery and eventually slaves held captive in Bristol were released. At the time slavery wasn’t considered immoral, so his stand was a brave one.”
Check out the title-track in the embed below and be sure to head over to their Bandcamp page where you can grab a copy of the EP under the pay-what-you-can option.
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.
Toronto’s Devi McCallion (aka Girls Rituals) has a collection of songs out that were recently unleashed on the masses. She also happens to be one half on Toronto duo Black Dresses who released a stellar effort back in early April. We’re digging what we hear, so now it’s time to share with you.
Check out our favourite album cut, Melty Future in the embed below and hit up her socials for more.
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.
