“Tallies are the personification of basking in the first rays of the year. Tentatively hopeful and finally ready for whatever comes next.” – GOLD FLAKE PAINT
“Crafting the kind of woozy, surf-pop nodding gold that wouldn’t sound out of place blaring out of a busted cadillac cruising past Venice Beach” – DIY

Toronto’s DELILUH join Hand Drawn Dracula (HDD)!
Their debut LP, Day Catcher, self-released in July and now being treated to a wider official release through HDD on May 4th. Day Catcher was recorded at home on a reel-to-reel tape machine and has slowly gained notoriety through inner circles as a no-nonsense document of their craft. Watch the video for the album’s “Creeping Tom” above.
Deliluh is an art-rock group at the centre of the west-Toronto DIY music community that has been discreetly gaining local attention on their own terms. Their shows mostly ignore the traditional circuit of bars and clubs, opting for more unconventional spaces like bakeries, libraries, veteran halls, apartments, and soon a dormant subway station. The core members are also responsible for some of the city’s latest string of house shows, taking place in the living room of their Bloordale apartment; a space known by many as Somewhere Else. MORE…
DELILUH are performing at CMW Underground at the decommissioned Lower Bay Subway Station on May 11th (facebook) w/ Tyriqueordie, E-Saggila, and Secret Guest TBA. Day Catcher available now on vinyl / digital via HDD HERE.

PRAISES is the solo project of Beliefs co-founder Jesse Crowe. Following the world-wide critical acclaim of Beliefs and the release of her first EP1 as Praises, Jesse Recorded EP2 at Toronto’s Candle Recording Studio with co-producer Josh Korody, Andrew Roy on bass, Robyn Phillips (Vallens) on guitar, and Laura Jane Beach on violin.
BREEZE started as a few sketches in the notebook of songwriter, producer, and engineer Josh Korody. Their dream-pop sound took form soon after with collaborators and friends Kyle Connolly and Shawn Dell joining the band. After a few weeks of rehearsals, the three went into Korody’s Candle Recording Studio in Toronto’s west-end with producer Leon Taheny to record a full length record in 2013.
SONG OF THE DAY “Ora Cogan draws from a wide web of influence, but – truly – she sounds like no other.” ~ CLASH
Critic’s Pick / NNNN “She’s proven herself a gifted songwriter, but in finding a logical way to extend her neo-folk foundation into darkwave territory, Cogan now sounds truly vital.” ~ NOW MAGAZINE
“Cogan moves gracefully between introspective synth ballads and psychedelic folk songs. And while her lyrics focus on corporate greed and environmental degradation, her transcendent arrangements provide relief and hope.” ~ DAILY BANDCAMP
