2014 Year End Round Ups


DOOMSQUAD

“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
