Absolutely Free // absolutelyfree.bandcamp.com
Toronto’s Absolutely Free are a synth-filled krautrock journey unfolding in front of you. Celebrating the release of their new EP ‘Geneva Freeport’, Absolutely Free bring cascading synth lines & flowing guitar textures that bound forward over focused rhythmic exercises. Their new single “Currency” featuring Meg Remy from U.S. Girls is signature retro-synthetic Absolutely Free with a rhythmic, melodic urgency. Their first release since their debut LP in 2014, Absolutely Free are absolutely back to warp minds in a wash of pysch-synth explorations.
Badge Époque // badgeepoque.bandcamp.com
Maximilian ‘Twig’ Turnbull is back. Best known for his work in U.S. Girls, Darlene Shrug, and The Cosmic Range, this new project features a crew of Toronto heavyweights (many of whom make up the core of U.S. Girls live band). This avant rock ensemble, dials in the dripping funk nods, feeling somewhere between a film score anti-vamp, a soul jazz vacation mix and a focused prog fantasy. With flute, congas, bass, drums, guitar and clavinet, this exciting new project pulls together densely packed grooves and 70’s psych influences into an unreal live performance.
TARXANAX // tarxanax.bandcamp.com
TARXANAX is band and a multimillion dollar media juggernaut. With ample free time on their side, TARXANAX has quickly ascended to the highest planes of human consciousness. Next up for TARXANAX is guitar and drum based music with guitars. Guelph locals Joe King and Belt Sanderson conjure up cool sounds (wiggly air) and present it to you (the fans) as part of an ongoing human experiment involving communal gathering
Misha Bower // mishabower.com
A co-founder of Toronto-based band Bruce Peninsula and an accomplished vocal guest with Daniel Romano, The Weather Station, City and Colour, Timber Timbre and Snowblink, Misha now emerges as a singer-songwriter with her debut album, Trying to Have it All. Misha’s last solo effort was a collection of short stories titled Music for Uninvited Guests. On Trying to Have it All, she tells new stories in song, each track delineating a character in a crucial moment of disclosure. Defiant, playful, reflective, radically honest—each character is accompanied by an arrangement that opens up like a secret inner door.
Cots // stephyates.com/cots
Cots is a new project from Steph Yates (Esther Grey, Cupcake Ductape). Borrowing elements of bossa nova, folk, jazz, and classical, Yates’s subtly unconventional composition style and poetics are at work here in a hushed and more naked voice. The sounds and images of Cots are familiar the way dreams and shadows are; there appear strange landscapes, the vague outlines of former lovers, a quiet queerness, the feeling of motion. These are songs of closeness and aloneness.
