APOCALYPSO (BROOKLYN VEGAN PREMIERE)


“APOCALYPSO” premiere stream on BROOKLYN VEGAN.
 
“Doomsquad’s new EP, Pageantry Suite, is agile funk that recalls Talking Heads’ Remain in Light”
~ BROOKLYN VEGAN
 
“Altogether lightning and extremely striking. Doomsquad brings together digital ambience, with velvet-smooth melodies and a serious funk. Three siblings and a metric ton of musical talent.” ~ THE DELI NYC
 
“On their latest EP, the now Toronto-based siblings Trevor, Jaclyn and Allie Blumas continue their exploration of world music and dance, this time bringing the vocals to the forefront. The result is hypnotizing”
~ NNNN CRITICS PICK ~ NOW MAGAZINE

Kalaboogie Year End Round up


 

“The ancient electronic sounds of Doomsquad are part new age, part experimental and entirely original. After releasing their 2014 debut, Kalaboogie, on Toronto’s Hand Drawn Dracula label, they’ve been building a slow and steady momentum. One day they will explode like 1,000 stars in the sky, and we’ll be there to say,
“Told you so.”” ~ CBC Radio3
 
“A defiantly “album”-like album in an iPod era, Doomsquad’s full-length debut is a monument to bloodyminded strangeness: a free-flowing melange of creepy chants, druggy drones and lockstep beats that only truly betrays its greatness when consumed in a single, enchanting sitting.” ~ The Star
