Introducing: Nömlonger

Nömlonger is the product of Matthew Hildebrandt, an indie electronic artist from Saskatoon, SK. Over the last couple of years he’s released the occasional track, but think on these things // okay, i will is the artist’s first proper release. The two tracks sample Bible readings of Philippians 4 and Psalm 16, creating an ambivalent environment of electronic-meets-acoustic sounds that evoke trusting God.… Continued →

REVIEW : A.Duff - One Life

A-Duff is no Calvin Harris; and coming from me, that’s quite a compliment. Well, at least my perception of Calvin Harris – I’ve never really given him a fair listen. In any case, there’s enough cheese-ball EDM in the world to go around. Some of A-Duff’s material could be on the radio (e.g.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Shane Newville - Roll Out

Remember Syntax Records, the label that put out awesome underground hip-hop like RedCloud, the Night Owls compilations, and Sackcloth Fashion? Well, sometimes the label released music from other genres, too. This included rock bands like Green Olive Tree and Olivia the Band, and on other occasions, electronic music. Today I’d like to share a song from Formless (2007) by Shane Newville, titled “Roll Out.”… Continued →

Kareem Martin - REALITY

Kareem Martin has some new tech house for us to hear. With five minutes of grooves and philosophical excerpts sprinkled overtop, “REALITY” opens up the listener to the topic of epistemology. Silverfilter provides an excellent remix that leans toward the chill side, as well. “REALITY” is available July 30, 2019 on digital retailers.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Mortal - Mujo (Uncertainty Mix)

Sometimes the songs that sound least like a band as a whole are their best songs. Mortal’s Nu-En-Jin (2002) is not a particularly calming album. They like to use a lot of distortion, and with the postmodern lyrics and spooky samples, this can make for a claustrophobic listen. However, “Mujo (Uncertainty Mix)” is about as chill as electronica can get, and reminds me of the perfect autumn day.… Continued →

Sareem Poems & Ess Be - Eyedentity (feat. Miles Young)

It’s time to shake off those Monday blues with an encouraging song from Sareem Poems & Ess Be. The blend of hip-hop, electronic, and soul makes “Eyedentity” a standout from an artistic standpoint, though the lyrics only accentuate this. In verse one, focusing around the image of a young black male, Sareem cleverly states: “Don’t use slang, you talk white / Hip hop ain’t the only music that you like / Metallica tees on you just don’t look right.”… Continued →

REVIEW : Ledger - Ledger EP

When it was announced that Jen Ledger would be releasing her debut solo ep, it filled many with a sense of excitement, rivaled only by an insatiable curiosity as to what we could expect from it. Would it be hard rock, similar in nature to her band Skillet? Pop? Electronic? Rock?… Continued →

REVIEW : Andy Hunter - Presence, Vol. 2

The piano is, like many instruments, simultaneously loved and loathed. The player will tickle the ivories even when others prefer silence. On Presence, Vol. 2 Andy Hunter’s DJ equipment starts to sound strangely similar to a piano. The instrument is present on just about every song, not to mention other orchestral instruments ranging from a pizzicato to a violin.… Continued →
