Northeast Kingdom In Autumn Mix

October 16th, 2015 | The Mix | 0 Comments

Fall in Cape Breton

This is my second autumn in New York and therefore my third one living in the Northeast. Sure, some would consider Toronto the Northeast, but by American standards, it might be more Midwest, considering how close it is to Detroit and Chicago. In any case, there’s definitely a beautiful, Northeast autumn vibe that some bands and artists capture really well. Here’s a little regional, seasonal playlist.

Joseph Landau

My Thornhill, Ontario broseph Joseph Landau put out new EP of idiosyncratic folk back in June. I had been meaning to give it a listen for a while, but when I bumped into him on the streets of Toronto this weekend, I knew it was truly time.

I used to do shows with Grounders back in Toronto when I lived there. They were good. They had that sparkly psych sound then too, but it sounds like it’s really gotten the big widescreen treatment on their self-titled new album. Enlisting Dave Newfeld (the mad genius best known for producing Broken Social Scene‘s You Forgot It In People and Broken Social Scene) to touch up the songs probably played a part in that.

Man meets Bear

Friend of the site and Ontario-based naturalist psych-folk artist Man meets Bear returns with a new album, Huronian Cadence, May 5th via his own Ur label. Following the band-ready Buffalo Comets and the folkier, mostly-acoustic Waagaaskingaa, Huronian Cadence finds Man meets Bear in fairly adventurous, experimental form, playing around with his usual aesthetics as well as new electronic and drone elements.

Vaadat Charigim

Israeli shoegazers Vaadat Charigim return with a slightly darker album than last time. Sinking As A Stone, their sophomore release, drops May 5th on Burger Records. They’ll be playing some shows around the US that month, including one May 22nd at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, so you can probably expect to see me there. Below is the first single “Ein Li Makom” (“I don’t have a place” or ‘there’s no place for me” in Hebrew).
