💿 Dead Soft – ‘Baby Blue’

Indie-rock trio Dead Soft hail from Vancouver, British Columbia. Back in October of last year, they released their stellar album Big Blue on the masses. Well, exactly one year to the date, the band is back with a new EP, Baby Blue … a collection of reworkings from Big Blue. The record is a more stripped-down affair but still stays true to their 90’s alt-rock sound … something we can’t get enough of here at The iM.

Check it out in the embed below, and be sure to hit up their socials for more going forward. And, if you haven’t heard Big Blue yet, listen to the album here … you’ll be glad you did.

🎧 Speaker Face – ‘Phosphorescence’

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto by way of Vancouver indie-electronic outfit Speaker Face. Good news for us… the wait is over. The 3-piece is back with a groovy new track and we couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Phosphorescence is a thank you letter to those who were here long before us, specifically the Coast Salish, and the early 1900s Japanese settlers, who were interned during WWII.”
