This album is a euphoric but tender ode to music and love in all its forms. From the very first synth sound and vocoder heavy line to the last I was hooked on this thing. It felt so fresh and new and it was my introduction to this band as I’d never heard more than a couple songs before putting this on the day of its release.

Let’s talk about production and instrumentation first. Seeing as this is a very synthetic and processed (both compliments) project, I’m gonna talk about ... read more

This album has been an unexpected favourite for me this year. I first heard about the band from the Mirrors festival lineup last year, where I unfortunately did not get to check out their set. So when I heard they released an album this year on one of my favourite labels Secretly Canadian, I thought I'd check it out to see what I missed out on and I was blown away. This record is in your face in the best way. It is a raw and bold expression of every chaotic emotion that are often hard to put ... read more

This is hard one for me to talk about. While I adore every Camp Cope project and everything I've heard from Georgia Maq's solo work so far, I feel like this album falls a little bellow the usual standard for her.

This is a near perfect release from an amazing up and coming artist.

This is simply put a really fun project. I checked this out having caught a short live set from Hibberd last year and it did not disappoint. Sitting at 4 songs and 13 minuets this is a short EP and I find that to be one of its only flaws. Due to the short run time, I don't feel like there are many common themes or concepts established between the songs and I hope this is something that will feature when we get a full length record. However, that is really where most of my criticism ends. The ... read more

I don't really have a rating system going so expect some inconsistencies. I am mainly just here to talk about my favourite records and why I love them. If there's a record you think I will like based off of my reviews/lists or something you'd like me to try and review that I haven't yet, feel free to drop a comment.
