YOUNG GALAXY

Ultramarine is the name and colour of Young Galaxy’s fourth LP, the first album they have made away from Montreal, across the sea, all together. Like 2011′s Shapeshifting, Ultramarine was made with electronic producer Dan Lissvik (Studio); but this time it was made in Gothenburg, Sweden, at Lissvik’s studio; this time five musicians stood in a room with Lissvik, playing their instruments; this time every song was sung by co-founder Catherine McCandless, with eyes on a blue horizon.

These are ten tracks of shining, glimmering electronic pop – songs that scatter across the dancefloor, swim through headphones, ringing out like a cold new summer. A modern record, beautifully now, and in a way more direct than anything Young Galaxy have ever made. This band has always loved pop music; here they lean into this love, finding lyrics that speak more to the beat than to intimate autobiography. They summon the spirit of our new century songbook, songs from Sweden to Manchester to down the block: “Fools Gold”, “We Share Our Mother’s Health”, “Protection”, “Machine Gun”, Orbital’s “Belfast”, or Factory Floor’s “Two Different Ways.”

Mister Lies

Mister Lies is the operational alias for producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nick Zanca. It was also the product of dorm-room insomnia, developing an odd family of friends in a city of strangers, and homesickness for places where one only feels homesick. Born in 1992 and raised by wolves in the suburban jungles of Connecticut, he learned to hunt his prey by means of basement shows and prolonged caffeine binges. Shortly after Zanca relocated to Chicago to attend school, he formed n pack with several other lone wolves aiming to create something greater. In the harshest parts of February winter in the Windy City equipped with a laptop, several controllers and whatever instruments were lying around his congested dorm-room, he released his first EP anonymously before eventually revealing his identity making rounds across the blog circuit. The trip-hop inspired Hidden Neighbors has been compared to the dark nostalgia found in acts like Boards of Canada, Burial, and Massive Attack.

Zanca now budgets time between his habitat in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago and his hideaway at a cabin on a Vermont lake, preparing new material for his first full-length to be released on Lefse Records in early 2013.

SILVER SWANS

Silver Swans (featuring Ann Yu of LoveLikeFire) capture the eerie drama of The Knife and the sweet darkness of Ladytron. "Beautifully swirling hollow vocals and intricate electro instrumentals that lift you into a dream state ... a constant, yet enjoyable struggle between vocals and electronics." --Exitfare
