“The cascading, ethereal track is anchored by a beautiful female vocal and a breathy French spoken section, before falling into a gorgeous lilt that nods to Depeche Mode, Slowdive and more” ~ CLRVYNT
May 5 – Toronto ON – The Garrison w/ Beams – Brokeback (Mem. of Tortoise)
“New & Notable: Yi’s dreamy, ambient shoegaze skips and skitters through various experimental passages” ~ BANDCAMP DAILY
“Yi establish a ying-yang approach to their intensity; confident in shoegaze and no-wave
as much as more ambient, rhythmic spaces.” ~ NOISEY

“The Seams play wistful, pretty indie rock, reminiscent of everything from mid-’60s rock ‘n’ roll to the foreboding energy of Slint – a cool, care-free breeze of guitars and silky vocals” ~ CLRVYNT

“Nailbiter makes sludgy experimental electro with shades of industrial and a pinch of gothiness. “Smeared” is a short song with a sense of impending doom, and though the sounds are cacophonous, it is still melodious and beat-driven.” ~ SILENT SHOUT
“a moody, threatening sonic vibe” ~ EXCLAIM!
“While writing ‘Do Easy,’ we were interested in manifesting the domestic flow of William Burroughs’s, The Discipline of DE. In Zak Tatham’s video, this domestic order is overthrown; chaos reigns and we break on through to a more instinctual side.” ~ THE FADER

“Toronto’s alternative/darkwave collective Vallens – expertly comprised of Robyn Phillips, Colin J Morgan, Marta Cikojevic, and Devon Henderson – have teamed up with Chris Mills (Modest Mouse, Interpol, Metric, BSS) as the first in a line of musicians to have their work made into visual art in a series with the label Hand Drawn Dracula. Mills is spearheading the project, and it’s going to be a big one.” ~ IMPOSE MAGAZINE

“Brand new Toronto supergroup Yi prove art rock is “Not So Dead” on this searing EP teaser – Thurston Moore once said “Teenage Riot” was about appointing J Mascis as a de facto alternative dream president; when “Not So Dead” changes direction halfway through with a searing new guitar melody, you could easily believe Mascis got a second term in office.” ~ THE LINE OF BEST FIT
“If you’re a fan of Dinosaur Jr. (or indeed authentic indie rock) you’re going to love this” ~ CDNX UK
