Out of the bustling music scene of Montreal comes indie-rocker’s The Luyas. Their debut album ‘Faker Death’ was released in 2007 on Pome Records (You’ve Changed Records). In the summer of 2010 the band signed to Dead Oceans Records after Pome disbanded. They released their follow up album ‘Too Beautiful To Work‘ in February 2011, for which they recieved a Polaris Music Prize shortlist nomination.

SESSION: Ring Them Bells

in Sessions by

Copenhagen “noise rockers” Ring Them Bells first came to light at the start of 2012 after they released teaser track ‘Technicolor’ on their social media. With powerful riffs at the center, along with curvy melodies and seductive vocals the band have taken inspiration from ’60s soul and blues roots combined with acid and noise. They’ve recently finished recording their debut album, set to be released at the start of February 2013. We met up with them on the final day of recording. Featuring: Marcus Bror Forsgreen (guitar) and Laila Macfarlan (percussion)

Mac DeMarco started up his solo venture as a bedroom project after moving to Montreal, Canada. Labeled as “slacker rock” (or “jizz jazz”) he first grabbed the attention of media with his debut EP ‘Rock and Roll Night Club’ (April 2012) released on Captured Tracks, who were impressed by his debut and decided to release a full length album ‘2’ in the fall of 2012. ‘2’ was recieved well by critics, scoring 8.2 in Pitchfork and claiming ‘Best New Music’.

SESSION: Sleep Party People

in Sessions by

Straight out of a Donnie Darko lucid dream come the bunnie mask wearing project of Brian Batz. Inspired by the works of Boards of CanadaDavid LynchErik Satie and some classic movie soundtacks, Batz found the sound through an old battered piano coupled with a freaky electronic alteration of his recorded voice creating on eerie hypnotic sound. Sleep Party People released their self titled debut album on Speed Of Sound in 2010 and have more recently released their follow up ‘We Were Drifting On A Sad Song’ this year on Blood and Biscuits.

Sleep Party People – the soundtrack for your dreams.

SESSION: Get Your Gun

in Sessions by

Get Your Gun hails from the northernmost part of the musical underground of Denmark. The trio was formed in 2008 by brothers Simon and Andreas Westmark and Søren Nørgaard. The band’s sound is built around a combination of raw bursts of energy and monotonous drones. This is supported by a song universe containing noise, desperation and evil from the outmost corners. In January 2011, after a string of demo releases, Get Your Gun recorded the single ‘Death Rattle’ and the b-side ‘Ghost of Scandinavia’ in a small backyard studio in Aalborg, released on 7″ vinyl by Aalborg underground label Empty Tape and recently released their debut 3 track (plus bonus) EP ‘Get Your Gun’ in January 2012.
