Brendan Canning (of Broken Social Scene)
Brendan Canning (of Broken Social Scene)
Even with Broken Social Scene on indefinite hiatus, it’s been an especially busy year for Brendan Canning: he recently revived his long-dormant, pre-BSS indie-pop project Cookie Duster; he composed the soundtrack to Paul Schrader’s upcoming Lindsay Lohan spectacle, The Canyons (written by Bret Easton Ellis); and he’s currently working on an ambitious interactive video-game/film project based on a premise that involves director David Cronenberg selling his intellectural property to a biotech lab. So, in light of all this activity, his solo release, You Gots 2 Chill is as much of a soul-soothing siesta for Brendan as it is for you, providing the clearest, most personal portrait to date of an artist who’s spent much of his two-decade career making other people sound better. Back in the ’60s, some acoustic-guitar slinging boho from Minnesota extolled the virtues of bringing it all back home—with You Gots 2 Chill, Brendan Canning updates that maxim to 21st-century standards, by offering outsiders with a glimpse of the quiet life on Draper Street that you just can’t get from Google Street View.

White Hinterland
To date, White Hinterland's output has been pretty organic and mildly jazzy, filled with lots of starched pianos and dusty strings. On her new album, Kairos, she left that behind for a confluence of electronic indulgences, lead songstress Casey Daniel morphing into some sort of mermaid siren, coaxing you down to her underwater basscave.
