stream young magic’s “still life”

May 6, 2016 12:05 pm

Happy Friday! Young Magic’s new album “Still Life” is streaming a week early over at WNYC’s Soundcheck. Give it a listen here. Only a week left to pre-order your copy from the Carpark shop or iTunes.

“The cumulative effect is that we understand the title Still Life to mean its common denotation: a picture, a snapshot of a period of convalescence in [Melati] Malay’s journey. But it’s also a reminder that the varied emotional strata expressed in these songs are all, in fact, still life. Despite everything dark and dense, there’s a pulse, alive and invigorating.”

The duo kicks off their tour with Yeasayer next week. Tickets on sale now.

Young Magic shares third single “Default Memory”

April 25, 2016 4:42 pm

Less than three weeks until the Young Magic’s album Still Life is here! The duo shared their third single, “Default Memory,” today via i-D. “‘Default Memory’ was written as a dedication to the ones I love, both living and passed. It came about around the time I was visiting family in Indonesia… a reminder that memories are never still like a photograph, but constantly oscillating. I was hoping to capture the feeling of dynamic suspension… memories as active objects… orbiting, changing and reflecting each place I’ve ever walked through.”

Greys cover The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says”

April 25, 2016 11:39 am

Kick your week off right with Greys’ cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says.” The track is streaming now via NME Magazine.

Frontman Shehzaad Jiwani on the cover: “I got on a huge Velvets kick right before we went into the studio to record Outer Heaven. Their self-titled record was on repeat for me in the van and while walking around Montreal in between studio sessions. The lyrics of ‘Candy Says’ really resonated with me on a personal level, and the feeling of being uncomfortable in your own skin fits with the album’s overarching themes of displacement and detachment. That, and I’ve always wanted to be a crooner.”

Greys’ “Outer Heaven” out today!

April 22, 2016 10:24 am

Outer Heaven is a massive leap forward for Toronto post-punks Greys. Delivering on the promises made on 2015’s Repulsion EP, the band tempers their trademark onslaught of discordance with new textures and subtle dynamics, building a more spacious and melody-driven environment atop their noise rock foundation. They fearlessly explore every extreme, simultaneously delivering their most intense and accessible moments, often within the same song.

The record is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shopiTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming via Spotify and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive a limited edition Greys postcard with the purchase of Outer Heaven, while supplies last.

Outer Heaven‘s heightened ambitions are best measured in terms of density rather than sprawl: the most bracing songs here pack in more radiant guitar textures, a greater lyrical depth, and sharper hooks without sacrificing Greys’ innate moshability and punk-schooled economy.” — Pitchfork
