Nick Bostick That Arcade Fire will release a new record this year - possibly/probably produced by or at least involving James Murphy - is pretty much a given. But also a given is that it won't be out until Fall, at the earliest, because a) it's already Spring and it's not done, and b) Fall is still when all the big records come out and this is about as big as they get. It would be nice to be able to say that Arcade Fire violinist Sarah Neufeld will be able [...]
Jennifer Rowsom For a band with such a clear and steady aesthetic - delicately pretty, harmony-laden folk with direct spiritual and sonic roots in the '60s - The Wilderness Of Manitoba have gone through their fair share of changes. The lineup that emerged from Toronto's Deleware House with 20092s Hymns of Love and Spirits and 20102s When You Left The Fire lost vocalist Melissa Dalton and added drummer Sean Lancaric and vocalist/violinist Amanda Balsys for last year's Island Of Echoes [...]
by Tiana Feng Snowblink 's latest video for "Inner Mini-Mississipi" has some fancy hula-hooping.

Toronto's very own Snowblink have a new video. It's for the track "Inner Mini-Mississippi" from their latest album Inner Classics . Watch it here: Snowblink play The Garrison in Toronto on April 1st with Zammuto.
Toronto-based duo Snowblink released their sophomore album, Inner Classics , last year via Arts & Crafts. With gossamer vocals and spare electronics over a folk-rock backbone, it's a lovely record and you can stream the whole thing below. The band's new video "Inner Mini-Mississippi" which features members Daniela Gesundheit and Dan Goldman against a backdrop of a couple world-class Hoola-Hoop-ers. We've got the video's premiere and you can watch it below. Meanwhile, the band are currently on tour and will be in NYC on April 14 at Bard College [...]
Zammuto drops this icy, hollowed remix of Snowblink 's already pretty brisk Inner Classics cut "Safety Stories," just ahead of the bill these two acts are sharing on a string of North American shows (dates here ). The post listen: Snowblink - "Safety Stories" (Zammuto remix) appeared first on Soft Signal .
On the original version of "Safety Stories," Canadian duo Snowblink let their airy, crisp vocals lilt playfully against an atmospheric folky backdrop. This remix, pieced together by Zammuto (a project started by The Books ' own Nick Zammuto), takes the chill, almost ethereal ambience a step further, adding icy and ghostly elements throughout. Listen to the new rendition below. Snowblink - "Safety Stories" (Zammuto Remix) "Safety Stories" is off Snowblink's sophomore album, 20122s Inner Classics , out now on Arts & Crafts. [...]
As 2012 winds down, each day we're revisiting one of our favorite songs (and videos): In many respects the longawaited second album from Toronto-based indie alt-pop duo Snowblink -- Daniela Gesundheit (best name ever) and Dan Goldman -- isn't a quantum leap from their 2008 debut Long Live . But the differences in both tone and production are striking. The airy and ethereal folk-driven dreamscapes that are the gently beating heart of the Snowblink sound are still on full display and better than [...]
2012 is almost ending soon. I am trying to get this done before my radio show on Monday where I count down the Top 12 Canadian albums of 2012. Here is the albums from #30 to #21. Sorry if there is no description on the albums. Check it out! 30. Great Bloomers - Distant Fire 29. Memoryhouse - Slideshow Effect [...]
Welcome back to the second installment of the songs that rocked my world in 2012. A small re-cap for those of you who missed out on yesterday's post: without any fanfare, ranking or listing, I'm giving you the 75 songs, split into five collections of 15 songs each, that soundtracked the year for me. There will be a post a day this week from Monday to Friday (You can click back to Monday's post to get the first part) , and you can collection them all to get a pretty awesome compilation that I think is a good [...]
Quem: Swonblink Onde: Torronto, Canadá Gênero: Nondenominational Devotional Pop Você não leu errado o nome do gênero, a banda inventou a sua própria nomenclatura de estilo. O Snowblink é um duo canadense que para classificar o próprio som teve que criar um nome para o mesmo. Misturando dream pop, indie rock e vocais mistos angelicais, o duo faz uma melodias lindissimas. A voz de Daniela Gesundheit é merece ser ouvida. Discografia: Interim at Afton Villa , de 2005; My Oh My Avalanche , de 2006, [...]
Filed under: Video of the Day Artist : Snowblink Video: "Goodbye Eyes" Highlight: "Carla Susanto plays with the one line of text in 'Goodbye Eyes' by stitching together stills of medical etchings," the band tells Spinner. "She gets right to the heart -- and brains and bronchioles and kidney and nerves and bladder and spine and eyes and legs and skulls and feet and head -- of the song." Watch Snowblink's"Goodbye Eyes" [...]
Facebook The last time that Evening Hymns graced a Toronto stage, it was back in August as part of the Summerworks festival and came a few days before the official release of their gorgeously heavy second album Spectral Dusk . After that show, which featured a band and lightshow specially assembled for that performance, Jonas Bonnetta and Sylvie Smith - the Evening Hymns principals - jetted across the ocean to tour the record across Europe with friends and album collaborators The Wooden Sky , only returning a couple [...]
Frank Yang So after a five year layoff, following the almost-simultaneous implosion of all my bands, I've begun picking up the guitar again on a regular basis. Mostly just messing around, getting my chops back in order and my calluses back, but certainly with more seriousness than I have in a very long time (though if anyone wants to start a band that sounds like The Afghan Whigs meets Catherine Wheel, get in touch). This is relevant because the last time Saint Etienne were here in 2002, despite the fact that two acts I liked - [...]
rheostatics.ca It was a pretty sweet get for Toronto's Legendary Horseshoe Tavern to enlist Joel Plaskett for five nights of shows from December 12 to 16 to mark its 65th birthday, but they weren't done. Canadian art-pop icons Rheostatics , who formally disbanded after eleven studio albums, four live albums, and a farewell show at Massey Hall in 2007, are getting back together for two nights at The 'Shoe on December 5 and 6. It's not quite the record-setting twelve shows in twelve nights "Fall Nationals" concert series they held at [...]
by Tiana Feng Yesterday I attended Soupstock , a festival fundraising and raising awareness to stop the mega quarry that would pose threat to Canadian farm lands. The day was filled with 85 different soups as well as many performances from musicians. I let the old people enjoy Jesse Cook and Jim Cuddy, but I attentively listened to Snowblink , The Paint Movement and Inlet Sound. Inlet Sound 's [...]

Yannick Grandmont Until recently, Montréal's Godspeed You! Black Emperor has been inexorably associated with a very certain moment in time, specifically the end of the last century and the dawn of this one. In addition to emerging at a time when post-rock was still an amorphous musical concept which was better felt than explained and Canada was only beginning to take steps towards becoming an international presence as home to exciting new music, Godspeed's trilogy of albums - F# A# , Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven [...]
