a very good sign.” – Stereogum

Sonic Boom’s New Album ‘Almost Nothing Is Nearly Enough’ is out now!

April 23, 2021 11:30 am

The day has finally come! Today, we release Sonic Boom’s latest LP called Almost Nothing Is Nearly Enough — an album full of lush and moody reimaginings of his last album All Things Being Equal. The album is inspired by the spirit of late 70s, early 80s records by artists like Kraftwerk, Blondie and Eddy Grant, and pushes forward a beating, fresh take of his own existential songs. You can watch a live video of Sonic Boom performing the song “Just Imagine (Remix)” right here.

Stream the whole album here.

Though the album has sold out on the Carpark store, there are plenty of copies being sold at indie record stores internationally. You can check out indie retailers here.

Madeline Kenney releases new music video for her track “Superstition”

April 2, 2021 10:56 am

As one season changes into the next, Madeline Kenney brings us the last music video off her surprise EP, Summer Quarter. The new video is for her track “Superstition” and displays a lavender colored portrait background, crumpling and billowing as it responds to its natural surroundings in front of cityscapes and vistas. The video was directed and realized by Derek Janzen and filmed in British Columbia.

More about the video here:

“Getting a video project off the ground has been increasingly challenging to navigate due to the tightening covid restrictions here in British Columbia over the past few months. Madeline and I have been talking about working on a project for a couple of years now and by the time it came to go ahead, the old ways of finding willing friends to feature or assist in a production became out of the question.

What I ended up settling on is somewhat of a response to my inability to safely interact with human subjects the way that I’m used to working. Instead of a photography backdrop serving as a companion to a human portrait of some kind, I wanted to see if there was something that could be said by making that object the focus of our attention. The hope is that the lack of a traditional subject reveals something through the altering of our expectations.”
– Derek Janzen (Director)
