Saturday Night Sounds: Glasys - "The Pressure" & "The Great Abyss"

For tonight's Saturday Night Sounds, we're blasting two singles off Glasys' September release The Pressure

A master at the keys, Portland by way of Tel Aviv, Isreal instrumentalist Gil Assayas shares animated vocals with faultless keyboard and synth playing to make jazzy electronic you can't help but dance to.

Give a go to Glasys' title track and the very Halloweeny and socially commentating music video for "The Great Abyss." While you're at it, plan on checking out his set at Kelly's Olympian on the October 11th with Vancouver's The Yacolt Burn and Seattle's General Mojo's.

   

Mood Music: Bryson Cone - "Color of Love (feat. Cat Hoch)"

In a match made in true music heaven, the joining of Portland's psych pop queen Cat Hoch with art-tronic outfit Fog Father's leader Bryson H. has led to this new track titled "Color of Love." 

Under a different moniker, the song premiered in late August and has held up through the summer season's ending days as a love song leading us into the fall. "Color of Love" shows their playful and cooly executed exchange of masculine and feminine vocals. When combined with the pairing of clear synths and electric guitars a la Metronomy, it creats an urbane blanket of delight.

Listen to "Color of Love" below. It'll bring a bit of doting light on this rainy afternoon.

QQQ generates soundscapes that travel to futuristic dimensions. His new EP, Vocoder Works, transplants the listener to a new, experimental electro/synth frontier. However, it still retains an exuberant danceable foundation. You can feel the grooves setting your molecules in motion tonight at Everybody Hits, where he'll be performing with Brandon Can't Dance, Oh! Pears, and Iska Dhaff.

Laik (aka Tyler Rice) released his new EP, With Love, today. Laik is pure synthpop and, with the addition of Reuben Garza, promises to bring the synthpop to a live audience soon.

   

WEAVES - LP OUT NOW!

Buzz Records band Weaves have recently dropped their debut self titled LP. Seems like everyone is excited about it from Toronto to Europe where they will be headed very soon. Female fronted indie rock with an edge. The rhythm grooves while the guitar and synth lay sweet hooks. The initial comparison would go to fellow Toronto band Metric however Weaves sound way more creative both musically and lyrically. When they return from Europe they play the Mod Club on November 3rd. Ya best go see em before they take off on a new worldly adventure. Have a listen to "Birds & Bees" from their debut LP available now.  - Kris Gies
