This summer Paper Beat Scissors has been back and forth across Canada performing at festivals, in cemeteries, and as Freddie Mercury.

It was while touring around Europe this spring that Tim Crabtree got into the habit of playing an old Annie Lennox song, and while in Utrecht he caught up with the folks at Here on Out to shoot a live video.

Next week PBS will be performing in Quebec City, a rooftop show in Montreal, and at the end of August Tim will perform with a 6-piece orchestral ensemble in Halifax. Tickets are VERY limited so act quick!

The second single from JOYFULTALK‘s new album Plurality Trip, ‘Kill Scene’ combines layers of modded synths and homemade electronics into a gem of a track that’s equal parts new age bliss and forward-thinking experimentation. Starting with a subtle, pulsating beat that builds into a rich landscape of drifting rhythms and insistent melodies, it’s a deeply immersive and captivating listen. 

Vintage-sounding synth music that recalls early Kraftwerk” Bandcamp

Following up on ‘Monocult,’ the acclaimed first single from Plurality Trip, ‘Kill Scene’ is a heady trip that solidifies JOYFULTALK’s place at the forefront of the new wave of electronic innovators.

Drawing on their innovative use of homemade instruments and visual installations, the video for ‘You Death March’ highlights JOYFULTALK’s immense creativity and the unique atmosphere they develop in their performances.
