VALLENS exclusive world premiere of TENNESSEE HAZE on VICE.COM.

“Vallens, who are influenced by Twin Peaks and recorded their album with a former member of Psychic TV, I was blown away — But name-checking aside, Vallens is actually good. The music is shoegazey, complex, and textured—don’t listen to it because it’s cool, listen to it because it’s a good song. Then buy their new album on Hand Drawn Dracula, a label that continues to be both stylish and full of substance.” ~ VICE.COM


ROLEMODEL // UNTIL (feat. Praises) Premiere

ROLEMODEL premiere their new track “Until” featuring Jesse Crowe of BELIEFS / PRAISES off the group’s forthcoming EP, Claire (available now in our HDD STORE).

“The music of Rolemodel is often described as “dreamy,” “hazy,” “ethereal” – the list of adjectives with nods to the subconscious go on. This mood defined the pop-meets-shoegaze project’s 2013 full-length, Before Then Was Now, and continues on “Until,” an intoxicating new track” ~ FLAVORWIRE

ETIQUETTE premiere their new video for Nine Circles minimal wave anthem “Twinkling Stars” (directed by Luke McCutchean) via Self-Titled Magazine, and announce several festivals including NXNE w/ Son Lux & Glass Animals, and Hillside Music Festival.

Etiquette // Attention Seeker (Video) Premiere on NOISEY

ETIQUETTE premiere their new video for “Attention Seeker” on NOISEY today ~ the video “will make you want to find the nearest vehicle and steam up the windows.” Directed by Trevor Blumas (DOOMSQUAD) and Ghostprom.

Attention Seeker bears a moody, mellow bassline, akin in vibe to Metronomy’s She Wants. It could also totally have been part of the soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides. All of which is to say Attention Seeker is both dreamy and unsettling and the video is full of shadowy eroticism” ~ NOISEY

Reminisce is available to order now on LP, CD, and Premium Digital via Hand Drawn Dracula (HERE)
and via iTunes USA (FREE Single FEATURE iTunes USA) and iTunes Canada (New & Noteworthy Feature).

Etiquette Performance and Interview at Q Studios

“Julie Fader and Graham Walsh of ETIQUETTE – partners in music and life – bring their intoxicating, sultry sound to Studio Q. Their debut record, Reminisce, is a wholly original sonic exploration. Listening feels like wandering foggy city streets in the twilight hours.

The pair join guest host Jelena Adzic to discuss their penchant for collaboration and how their first major project together differs from what came before.” ~ Q

Etiquette Reminisce premiere on Consequence of Sound & CBC

Listen to the premiere stream of ETIQUETTE‘s debut album “Reminisce”, on CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND and First Play on CBC Radio3. “Reminisce” is out March 24th, 2015 via Hand Drawn Dracula ~ PRE-ORDER HERE.

ETIQUETTE is a collaborative project of producer Graham Walsh (METZ, Viet Cong, Alvvays) and vocalist JULIE FADER.

Walsh’s “synth-heavy production also recalls classic acts like Eurythmics and Depeche Mode, and feels especially hypnotic when paired with Fader’s vocals, steady and feathery like those of Metric’s Emily Haines. ~ From the sparse starts (“Pleasantries”) to the pulsing intensity (“Twinkling Stars”), it’s difficult not to be enveloped by the Canadian natives’ lush and dreamy atmospherics.”

“slow, pulsing, dreamy synth clouds and melancholy lyrics, with the occasional blast of uptempo, dancefloor-ready electro”
~ CBC Music



DOOMSQUAD announce USA / Canada tour dates with Phèdre. Working their way up from New Mexico (where the band started preliminary work on a new full length), DOOMSQUAD are stopping by Austin’s SXSW Music Festival to play several shows with The POP Group, Will Butler and more! Look out for Spring tour dates, new music, and announcements to be made very soon…

Etiquette // Brown And Blue (Video)

Scion Sessions and Toronto dream pop duo ETIQUETTE (HolyFuck’s Graham Walsh and indie icon JULIE FADER) bring you the visual treatment for Brown and Blue; the latest offering from their debut album Reminisce, due out March 24th, 2015.

Directors Christopher Mills and Gaëlle Legrand bring their unique vision to the table, capturing the ethereal mood and tone of Etiquette’s Brown and Blue. “When a lonely Alchemist from a parallel universe begins experimenting with the abstract, new worlds can open up. Our camera floats hypnotically around his breezy, dilapidated laboratory, at times guided by the ghosts and memories of his past experiments – pushed, it seems, by Etiquette’s steady, pace, lush production, vocals, and cryptic lyrics.” ~ Chris Mills

Scion Sessions has previously collaborated with Etiquette & HDD on the sparse and moody track Outside In as part of the joint Scion Sessions x Field Trip limited edition Discovery Series 7”, as well as supporting their unforgettable live performance at the Field Trip Discovery Series / Hand Drawn Dracula showcase.


WISH kick off 2015 with a video premiere of “Slacker,” directed by Luke McClutcheon, from their self-titled debut album via SPIN.

“”Slacker,” a highlight from last year’s self-titled album by Canadian dream-pop fuzzsters Wish. As dueling Yo La Tengo-esque guitars envelop Kyle Connolly’s washed-out vocals, the singer walks around an empty Aquarium of Niagara, gawking at the fish, cuddling with a sea lion, and at video’s climax, taking a dip in the deep blue himself.” ~ SPIN

Catch WISH this Friday, January 16th at Heretical Objects Cooperative’s opening night for Come Up To My Room, the 10-day annual alternative design extravaganza held at The Gladstone Hotel in Toronto.
