Snowblink is a group from Toronto, who are currently touring with Owen Pallet. I find this completely appropriate due to how similar stylistically the two artists/groups are. Snowblink features beautiful vocals layered over instrumentation that is half ambient and half cinematic. Daniela Gesundheit’s vocal is really darn impressive, and her voice is warm and sweet, which is rare. “Rut & Nuzzle” is a comforting track, and gets better the more you get to know it. The usage of sound effects is interesting, but after a few listens it falls into its place and starts adding to the atmosphere that the song produces.
The first forty seconds of Infinity Skull Cube start out as a sound collage and then builds into quasi post-punk style intro with almost trace style synths. Fifty seconds in, the song takes form and a guitar part enters the mix. As weird as it this may be, the track sounds like the lost child of Gang Of Four and Pink Floyd. The song’s dead space makes for an interesting listening experience. MMDDYYYY are a Canadian group with an awesome sense of humor. The song’s outro is a very funny goof, and a spoof. While the track might be a little hard to digest, it’s absolutely worth listening to.
