Playing tracks by
Pat Jordache, Gross Magic , Holy Other, Soft Metals, Tropics and more.
With Toronto’s NXNE Music and Film Festival taking place this week, along with the announcement of this year’s Polaris Prize longlist earlier tonight, I suppose this New Noise was always destined to include a sizeable chunk of Canadian goodness. Accordingly Pat Jordache and Volcano Playground make for an exceptional pair of musical bookends.
Elsewhere, absorb intense electronic pleasure by virtue of Holy Other, Tropics and Samaritan, allow the cold-handed massage of Soft Metals to ice your stifled blood, and be bundled into a boot (or trunk) for a euphoric freeway joyride with The War On Drugs.
There’s also brand new Washed Out and the most talked about band/man of the moment – Brighton’s Gross Magic, but I've just lost the will to spin out any more hyperbolic bullcack.
Your ears are appreciated.
