Revolution Above Disorder is the work of Dubliner Stephen Nicholas White (The Orange Kyte, House of Dolls, The Subterranean Satellite Band, Magic Shoppe), who is currently based in Vancouver. His new single ‘Annihilator’ is a febrile, organic slab of brooding, atmospheric goth pop which prowls in the half light with a delicious intensity. The waves of …

You know Vancouver’s Royal Canoe, right? Released a very good new album called Sidelining last year? Yeah, them? Well, they’ve made a new record, and it’s out right now. 10 new Royal Canoe songs! For all intents and purposes it’s a brand-new offering, but it’s a rarities collection and not a proper full-length. We’d imagine …

It would be fair to say that Vancouver quartet Blonde Diamond have been in album mode for a while now. It’s the reason they all but vanished for two years before resurfacing a few months ago with the intense ‘Red Flags’. As the first we heard from them since 2018, it was the sound of …

Revolution Above Disorder is the work of Dubliner Stephen Nicholas White (The Orange Kyte, House of Dolls, The Subterranean Satellite Band, Magic Shoppe), who is currently based in Vancouver.

His new single ‘Illuminate’ is a delicious slice of dark, foreboding shoegaze with a Jesus and Mary Chain sneery disdain and a My Bloody Valentine chainsaw …

It’s been a hot minute since we heard from Canadian duo Dear Rouge; the duo of Drew and Danielle McTaggart have kept a relatively low profile since the release of their second album Phases in 2018, and what have they been up to since then? Well, it hasn’t all been downtime – they’ve completed work …

A VANCOUVER duo who met by chance at a jobbing jingle recording session some decade and a half ago, the curiously named The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer soon discovered a mutual wish to explore the folk and the blues; a business they’ve been about over five albums in the time since. They’ve taken the …

VANCOUVER’S self-styled fairy-folk singer-songwriter Jordan Klassen released an album, Tell Me What to Do, last May, which he hopes connects people organically, drawing upon their shared experiences lyrically and conceptually; and, he hope, making them feel less alone in a crazily paced, hyper-connected world. It explores what’s it’s like to be in a world where …

COMIN straight atcha from Vancouver, in the Pacific Northwest, Sound of Kalima are buzzing up their hometown; and with their new single they’re hoping to take things a lot, lot further. They’ve just dropped a new single, “Destroy U”, full of guitar crunch, looming breaks, sassy lyrics . And we’re delighted to be premiering it …
