Annie Hart to release second solo album, plays Union Pool on 12/13

Dreamy, introspective songwriter Annie Hart releases her sophomore solo album “A Softer Offering” this month, two years after her “Impossible Accomplice” debut. Already known as an innovative film composer and founding member of Lynchian synth-faves Au Revoir Simone, Hart continues to expand her body of work with this latest release. Opting for a more spacious, minimal sound, first single and video (streaming below) “Wilderness Hill” centers around a steady low note pulse and stark electric piano chords. With self -directed video footage shot in the songtitle referencing area of Margate, England combined with hometown Rockaway Beach imagery, Annie's hushed vocals match this early morning contemplative mood. Follow-up single “Don't Breathe For Me” employs singular held keyboard pads, angular electronic percussion and deep-twang melodies behind a raw vocal recitation on the need to move on. The whole album is a cohesive work that emphasizes the spaces inbetween our hectic lives, where our own thoughts are encouraged to mingle with the artists creations. The album is out in full on 12/13 with a release show that night at Union Pool. - Dave Cromwell

Uncola - New Psych Single "Cactus Throat", Monarch Tavern 12.13

Uncola are a new group in the ever growing Toronto psych scene. They have released their debut single “Cactus Throat”. This lo-fi track features excellent vocals with a perfect amount of echo and reverb. The vocals bring a nice contrast to the noisy garage sound of the instruments. The rhythm section drives this song while the guitar is free to make all kinds of sweet sustaining noises. Uncola will be playing The Monarch Tavern on Friday December 13th along with Wine Lips and BBQ Pope in support of The Effens LP Release Party. – Kris Gies
