Not a lot happens in the new Chad Valley video but we love the girl star in a 'she's almost certainly an escaped lunatic' sort of way as she breaks into people's houses, swims in their pools and, no doubt, walks mud into the carpets after a long walk over the moors thinking about lovely downbeat electronica. Here is the video for 'Shell Suite'. It's not going to win any awards for the excitement levels, but as far as we're concerned, the song is one of the very best of 2011. [...]

In what can well be described as a falsetto meeting of chillwave minds, Active Child (with How To Dress Well) has just been revamped by Chad Valley
One of my top 5 tunes of the year thus far gets a video by Isaac Ravishankara. Active Child's You Are All I See was a recent album of the week . Meanwhile both Active Child and HTDW were remixed recently by Chad Valley and Solar Bears respectively. Listen below.

Active Child released his album You Are All I See this year and it received some favorable reviews, including here on Potholes. One aspect brought up in our review here by Dave MacIntyre were the comparisons Active Child would surely get to Bon Iver. This song, especially this remix by Chad Valley forces me to do just that. "Playing House" features How To Dress Well, whose autotune enhanced falsetto seems most likely to take Bon Iver's white guy croon crown if Kanye ever tires of Justin Vernon's services. And Chad Valley adjusts the mood, [...]

Active Child Playing House Featuring How To Dress Well (Chad Valley Remix) I wasn’t going to post this, but I can’t stop listening. I am a big fan of all three of these artists. Chad Valley did a fantastic job of highlighting the best qualities of this track. The remix puts a heavy emphasis on Pat Grossi and Tom Krell’s haunting harmonies, with most of the R&B bassline removed, allowing the intricate piano notes to trickle through. Love this.

Toronto - Just like early 20002s alt metal one hit wonder Staind once said, "it's been awhile" since we have done one of these articles. It's also been awhile since there's been a host of good shows to write about. It all ends this week, as concert season once again begins, coinciding with the inevitable return of fall and a new gaggle of fresh young nubile college kids ready to find themselves. Here are the shows that have us interested this week. Miami Horror/Empire of the Sun Sound Academy, September 13 Despite [...]
Currently out on tour in the US, Active Child has revealed a Chad Valley remix of You Are All I See track ‘Playing House’. An already crisp, soaring pop song Chad Valley’s Hugo Manuel has stripped away the more intricate instrumentals of the original (which features How To Dress Well) whilst auto-tuning Pat Grossi’s hymnal vocals so they become the focal point of the melody.
Fate is a funny thing. One little decision can change the outcome of a whole series of events. With 9/11 and recent personal events, my thoughts have been circling around how and why different things happen when so many factors have to be in place for those things occur. Choosing to smile at the girl at the pizza counter, choosing to leave the show early, choosing to turning right instead of crossing the street when going to a yogurt shop, yeah, that's life, that's what makes us. We are composite of the decisions we make, but [...]

Active Child ’s ethereal duet with How to Dress Well Playing House is one hell of an energetic song, yet Chad Valley turns it into a more softer, piano-based slo-hi-fi-ballad. Works too. mp3 Active Child - Playing House (Chad Valley Remix)
