PREMIERE: Get reacquainted with Montreals Oh Hi collective with No. 2
May 26, 2016 1:07pm | Chart Attack

Last year, we helped Montreal's Oh Hi collective introduce themselves to the world with their first official compilation. It was a simple step (basically just a name and existence), but it was the official notice that the group, a loose connection of artists, friends, and frequent collaborators, was now a formal entity. It was also a way to send out the signal to other like-minded folks to reach out and get involved. "It allowed for even more ideas to grow and collaborations to happen," relates David Switchenko of founding Oh Hi band Saxsyndrum.

And now, a year later, we have the second Oh Hi compilation. Another 15 tracks ranging from jangle pop to post-rock bombast, intimate folk strum to synth and strings soundscapes, it's another window into Oh Hi's interconnected explosion of creativity, a beginner's guide to a fertile Montreal micro-scene, and a sonic journey you can take at your desk if you want to.

Some songs, like Slight's shoegaze epic "Origin of Birds," are exclusive to the compilation, some are by groups that have joined since last year (Loon, Best Fern), and some are collaborations and remixes that showcase the collective's connectivity. And if Beyoncé's "Hold Up" didn't destroy the need for more "Maps" covers, this Saxsyndrum & Ohara Hale team-up is an all-time highlight.

"The concept of this years compilation is similar to last years: to collect and highlight the music we've worked on in the last year," says Switchenko. "...

The Amazing announce new album, share Ambulance listen

On July 22nd, The Amazing will return with a new album titled Ambulance via Partisan Records. Spanning eight tracks, it marks the Swedish outfit’s fourth full-length following last year’s Picture You.

“While Picture You was bright, exploding outward to explore the limits of experience, this next installment, Ambulance, is more intimate, imploding inward to reconnoiter the uncharted distances that exist between us,” described a press release.

Frontman Christoffer Gunrup spoke about the title and its connection to the album’s themes, saying, “An ambulance picks up the wounded. It does not mean ‘ambulance’ in the common sense. Everybody needs a bit of ‘ambulance’ now and then.”

Our first taste of the new record comes with its title track, a somber number shrouded in a whirlwind of dreamy guitars. Stream it below.

Relaxers EP2 is a triptych of crumbling techno and lens flare synths stream it now
May 26, 2016 12:48pm | Fact Magazine

We still don’t know who Relaxer is, but it hardly matters.

The mysterious anonymous producer is an overplayed trope in electronic music, but Relaxer delivered where it counted. The producer’s debut EP released earlier this year arranged n diverse collection of tracks into a surreal techno journey and this next installment only tops it.

Though it’s only three tracks, EP2 covers more ground than before and captures what makes Relaxer exciting in a kind of musical triptych. The entire A-side is dedicated to the 10-minute epic ‘Hissing Flora’ which takes crumbling techno and smears it with ghostly disorienting vocals.

The B-side explores both extremes to that sound with ‘Weekend’ an eerie beatless soundscape and the closing ‘Climate Of Fear’ which builds off a persistent pulse and arpeggios that flash like a lens flare. It’s a concise package to show off an exciting producer regardless of who they even are.

EP2 is out next month through Relaxer’s eponymous label. Listen to it in full below and grab it via Juno.

Temple of the Dogs master tapes returned in time for 25th anniversary
May 26, 2016 12:40pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Seattle-bred grunge supergroup Temple of the Dog has made recent headlines for an ongoing lawsuit over the rights to the master tapes of their self-titled album. For the last few years, the masters of the Pearl Jam/Soundgarden collective’s sole LP have been the center of a dispute between London Bridge Studio and A&M Records. As of this week, the lawsuit has finally been settled and the tapes returned to frontman Chris Cornell.

Cornell tweeted the news with a photo of the tapes, and subtly noted they have been returned just in time for Temple of the Dogs 25th anniversary.

— Chris Cornell (@chriscornell) May 24, 2016

Until recently, the tapes had been in the possession of Rick Parashar, former co-founder of London Bridge Studio, where the album was recorded, as well as the LP’s co-producer. Following Rick’s death in 2014, the tapes were then handed over to Rajan Parashar, Rick’s brother and studio co-founder.

As Exclaim! reported in April of 2015, Rick had backed out of business deal made in 1993 that stated he would give A&M, Temple of the Dog’s label, the physical tapes and the rights of the recordings for $35,000. When Rajan found himself in possession o...

Todd Solondzs Wiener-Dog trailer barks with brilliance watch
May 26, 2016 12:38pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Todd Solondz doesn’t really play by the rules of Hollywood. Which is why most of his work tends to exist on the fringe of society, and his latest cutthroat comedy, Wiener-Dog, is no different.

Starring Greta Gerwig, Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, Julie Delpy, and Zosia Mamet, the anthology film is a varied collection of quirky stories that meditate on the breathless march towards our respective graves.

We caught the film at this year’s past Sundance, and called it “a balmy, addicting stroll through [Solondz’s] not-so-delirious vision of America that charms just as much as it haunts.”

One of the stories features Welcome to the Dollhouse‘s Dawn Wiener and Brandon McCarthy, portrayed by Gerwig and Culkin, respectively. You can catch glimpses of the characters in the new trailer above.

Wiener-Dog opens on June 24th
