PREMIERE: HSY are done dealing with your shit in Little Man
May 31, 2016 10:43am | Chart Attack
"Little Man," the latest from Toronto sludge punks HSY, is a two-minute lo-fi blitz extra coarse grit, scorching hot and aimed like a death ray straight at your dumb face.
The track, recorded by Barry Weatherhead and mixed by Ian McPhedran, is basically a song-length "fuck off," explains HSY frontman Jude. It's a fast and dirty sandblasting that'll wash away any old scum you point it at.
"The song was written during a really angry spell for me," he says, "and luckily I don't have the same animosity now that I did then. I felt disrespected and shit on by people who fashioned themselves as leaders and innovators of a 'scene.' The whole experience has helped me realize that art or music or whatever you're creating has to say something, and above all it needs to have integrity. 'Little Man' means something to me. It means I'm done dealing with your shit, let's move on."
You can catch HSY live on their way to Sled Island (with Psychic TV!) at any of the dates below:
May 31st - MTL @ La Plante*
June 1st - Kingston @ The Mansion*
June 3rd - Toronto @ The Horseshoe Tavern *

Miss Red announces Murder 7, shares unsettling Fever video
May 31, 2016 10:19am | Fact Magazine
The Israeli dancehall MC returns.
Miss Reds presence on the mic has spiced up The Bugs gritty, bass-heavy riddims for a few years now, and last year she struck out with a crushing debut mixtape, Murder. Now she’s announced her very own label, RED LABEL, which kicks off with a 7″ (what else?) featuring Murders Mark Pritchard-produced title track, backed with ‘No Guns’.
This special release begins a run of Miss Red singles, with a 12″ promised for Soul Jazz records, and further singles for NYCs Dubstuy and Mungos Hi-Fis Scotch Bonnet.
To celebrate the run of releases, another Murder highlight, ‘Fever’, has been treated to a moody visual accompaniment from Hiroo Tanaka, who previously directed videos for The Spaceape, Scratcha DVA, Funkineven, King Midas Sound and The Bug.

NOW HEAR THIS: Toronto artists suspend time with SLOW Volumes
May 31, 2016 10:14am | Chart Attack
Now Hear This is a daily dive into the standout songs of the day. Today, Toronto musicians slow the pace, Daniel Romano releases a surprise bonus album, and Dories find a time portal.
Various Artists, SLOW Volumes : One (1)
SLOW VOLUMES : ONE (01) by SLOW Volumes
Think about the last blockbuster album you listened to, read all the tweets about, thought about the thinkpieces, committed to a free streaming trial. Are you still listening to it? Or were your lured by the promise of more music and content in the next tab, ready to move on to the next release?
With an abundance of new music, the modern listening pattern is determined by speed we're always scanning for what's next. So Toronto producer/composers James Bunton (of Light Fires, Latest Cry, Friends in Bellwoods) and Joshua Van Tassel gathered their Toronto music community to take a breath, reduce their pace, and record a compilation of "slow" music. Artists including Sarah Slean, Christine Bougie, Felicity Williams, and more, contribute dreamy, ambient, contemplative, slow compositions.
"It's the kind of music that lets you fall into its world for just a few minutes, hopefully giving you something interesting to listen to and absorb, but while also giving you the space to contemplate and think about what you're hearing, and what you're feeling in the moment," says Bunton. "It's about trying to find a bit more time to slow down and consid...
