Art d'Ecco's debut LP is a playlist of desire and isolation- mixing elements of 70’s glamrock with analogue synthesizers and Motown rhythms; garage rock with Krautrock; and neo-psychedelia with... spaghetti western soundtracks. The end result is as ambitious as it is exciting. An honest portrayal of what happens when one is left to their own devices, in the windowless room of mother nature.
ACTORS are a smooth night drive on a downtown viaduct; anesthetizing and brimming with kinetic energy. With warm keyboard pads and high frequency bass lines listeners fall in love immediately with a sound that’s both aggressive AND creamy. The new wave four piece achieves their end goal by paying tribute to the production and arrangement of Hughes-ian era heart melters and the kind of hymns found in those once-in-a-lifetime dreams. They’ve created a soundtrack that could have only come from a city that’s constructed of hopeless glass towers and features an exquisite grey void that canopies overhead every day of the year. Actors make terrible musicians, but musicians often make fantastic ACTORS.
Gothic post-punk band from Vancouver.
Croatia does synth-seduction. Their songs are built with waves of neo-80s synths, pulsing arpeggiators, reverb-drenched guitar and massive electronic beats.
