The Lab is a new Canadian haunting-electronica duo.
Word does arrive of an EP which is due for release around the end of the month, however, at present there is only one song to hear – Oceans.
Immediately on hitting play the listener finds themselves pondering are there only two players rather than a complete orchestra?
The sorrowful orchestration circles through the room in an alchemic synthesis of horns, kettledrum, organ, bows and strings which paint a celestial soundscape through which the voice, as though gliding on thermals, provides effortless broad pitch – leaving the audience spellbound by the mesmerising, quietly flowing, composition.

The Canadian submarine-rock duo Sea Of Lettuce released the two track single – Singles – on the 28th of May.
Sea Of Lettuce
Their music is always of submerged perspective as the listener is entertained by the truncated soundwaves of listening to music whilst underwater.
The first of the two tracks on Singles (available on bandcamp) Wojriff minds of looking upwards and watching sunlight refracting through the rippling surface water.

Within the past dozen hours the Canadian swing-rock outfit From Gemini released their eponymous EP.
Tipple the speakers to upper volume to best enjoy the output as registers of upper notes and lower beams sling their hooks across the room in a luxurious soundscape of finely fingered twitching guitar notes which slip inside and out of meandering octave and delay pedals giving the music considerable direction of travel as the thumping percussion and bass threaten to break the sub-woofer through which the vocal fights for space for its own intervention – though far from sounding like an idea of disparate concepts – it all lays in narrative which has the listener entranced.
From the EP the second of the five tracks – Better Days.

The Canadian funk-rock band The Altobeelays released the LP Weaponized Magik earlier in the month.
Weaving in threads of jazz, rock, funk, soul and the occasional hip-hop – The Altobeelays deliver a well designed tapestry for the audience to spend time. Their music continually has a frenetic hive of activity going on at anyone time providing it a sense of extemporisation and resulting in the output having a natural organic flow which holds attention.
Spending much of their time on the road, the collection of eight songs on Weaponized Magik, which is available directly from their website, affords both those who have seen them in live performance and those who haven’t the opportunity to recreate their own party at home.
By way of an introduction the opening track Psycho Jungle.

The Canadian funk-rock sextet Bombargo released the LP – We Are Bombargo – earlier in the month.
The deeply grooving sounds of Bombargo find the listener connecting their rib-cage to the hip bone such is the funky sway of the tracks. The sextet don’t use the numerous players to add volume, rather smooth the steps of the pulsating rhythms. This is music in which to take to the dance-floor wearing a white fedora and enjoy the mix.
Currently on an extensive Western Canada Tour – if you are in the vicinity, well worth getting out to see when they are in town. For those of us who aren’t in Western Canada – my selection from the album is the second of the ten tracks – Pour Me Another.
We Are Bombargo – Bombargo is available on iTunes.*
