Taste is a new band from Toronto’s Ewan Kay. I’ve know Kay since about 2007. He’s a good dude. He’s also a member of another great Toronto band, Moon King. Kay’s latest project shares some of that band’s fluorescent dream-pop aesthetic, but feels more grounded in comparison with Moon King‘s aery swirl.

The band is playing the Silver Dollar on Friday, September 25th, with a pretty stacked bill of comrades.

The Woodheads are back.

A little over a week ago, Airick Woodhead, released his second full-length album as Doldrums on Sub Pop. I haven’t made it all the way through that album, The Air Conditioned Nightmare, but the couple songs off it I heard sounded pretty badass. Moon King – Daniel Woodhead‘s dream-pop project with Maddy Wilde – also just put out their album Secret Life the other day (the 14th) via Last Gang. Both Torontonian bros (admittedly Airick is based in Montreal these days…) are playing with their respective outfits in New York/Brooklyn this weekend. I’ll be part of the Canadian ex-pat attendance crew at one of those shows, provided I can get a ticket or something.

Also here’s music…

Good news: Daniel and Maddy are finally getting around to putting out a proper Moon King album. Secret Life comes out April 14th on Toronto label Last Gang. First dropped song, the kraut-y “Roswell”, finds the band using the shimmering work of 90s brit-gazers Lush as a foundation upon which to construct their own temple of sound.

Wow, I miss the Toronto music scene. Daniel Woodhead (not Benjamin…) and Maddy Wilde (together they are aka Moon King) bring another bad-ass tune into existence, going harder into some weird corner of shoegaze (Sunny Sundae Smile-era My Blood Valentine, perhaps) and the results are phenomenal.

Toronto’s Loveless

October 31st, 2011 | The Mix | 4 Comments

In honour of the 20th anniversary of My Bloody Valentine‘s masterpiece album Loveless, we, the indie-rockers of Toronto, would like to show our gratitude with this covers compilation. You can download it for free off soundcloud, but please support the original artists who created the masterpiece by heading over to your local record store and purchasing the album on vinyl. It’s totally worth it.

All of Toronto is also welcome to come to the all-ages 20th anniversary celebration party we’ll be putting on at the Toronto Underground Cinema this Friday (November 4th).
