DOOMSQUAD Pyramids On Mars premiere stream via THE FADER  //  EXCLAIM! + BROOKLYN VEGAN

“Not your average family band – “Pyramids On Mars” is filled with echoey effects, rapid-fire percussion, and a warbling, ominous bass synth melody—the hallmarks of quirky sci-fi sonics.” ~ THE FADER

BELIEFS // Swooner (VIDEO) premiere via CLASH


BELIEFS release a new video for Swooner, directed by Ivy Lovell, via UK’s CLASH magazine.

“Even 40 years on from the dawn of punk, shaving your head can still be a rebellious move. For a woman, it’s an especially profound gesture. It’s the complete removal from a capitalist hierarchy, from the monetisation of female beauty. Don’t want to partake in the endless beauty chase? Shave it all off and let the world stare.

Thankfully, director Ivy Lovell captured the process, and an oddly intimate experience – matched to the searingly truthful music of Beliefs, it’s a coruscating listen and an addictive watch” ~ CLASH

NAILBITER // Live Improvised #1 + Sworm (stream) via SPIN

NAILBITER Sworm premieres on SPIN today!

“Nailbiter Creates a Swarm of Sound on ‘Sworm’ ~ After releasing its tense debut album, Formats, back in September via Hand Drawn Dracula, Korody is now sharing his next effort, “Sworm.” Created solely with synthesizers, the anxiety-evoking track is a more experimental take on Korody’s guitar-less side. The surging rhythmic collection explores Korody’s modular potential, much like improvisational session recorded at his apartment party in October, the first in a series of live sessions.” ~ SPIN

Nailbiter (Josh Korody of BELIEFS / WISH) also recently released a new Live Improvised #1 session via Hand Drawn Dracula. The track was recorded live on October 4th, 2015 in his living room in front of small group of friends and musicians from the Toronto indie music scene. The experimental electronic session is the first in a series of live sessions. (photo by Harley Haskett)

Toronto’s Nailbiter brings an entirely different trance-inducing force. The modular electronic solo project of Josh Korody finds his dreams of wires shifting into industrial nightmares.” ~ AUX TV

FRESH SNOW – King Twink Rides Again (Video) via FLOOD


FRESH SNOW premiere “King Twink Rides Again” video, from WON EP, via FLOOD Magazine + EXCLAIM!, MARVIN.

“One truly instrumental highlight of that EP was the epic “King Twink Rides Again,” ~ the experimental cut-up experience—made by Craig Orrett and Sturdy Films—is a beautiful traverse through woods, streams, and states of mind.” ~ FLOOD Magazine

“unearthly meditative dance track features desonant vocalization and techno loops that hang on the strand of buzzing bass lines and collection of drums that create an intoxicating loop of atmopsheric immersion” ~ NOISEY (CAN) / NOISEY (FR) / NOISEY (IT)

LEAPER is out now on a limited run of green translucent vinyl. Order HERE.

“Dream pop viewed through a prism of distortion… build up into an atmospheric and deeply unique world. New album ‘Leaper’ emerged at the tail end of last year, matching sumptuous sonics against some of the band’s most developing songwriting yet. ‘Leave With You’ is an apt introductory point for those new to the charms of Beliefs.” ~ CLASH
