Listening Guide

“Clock Strikes Twelve” by the Sour Notes (Austin, TX)

Dive right into the brand new Sour Notes album, Darkest Sour, with the very first track. It’s definitely a striking start to an album that allows itself to wander into more psychedelic terrain and sonic brilliance than ever before. Catch them in Galveston with Faith Healer and a DJ set by Cecil Frena on November 25.

 

“Such a Gemini” by Faith Healer (Edmonton, Alberta)

Calling all Geminis! They’re pretty hard not to like, and the same goes for this song from Canada’s Faith Healer. The production is reminiscent of the 70s, with funky synths and very generous doses of spring reverb, while the vocal delivery is no-frills and laced with wonderfully dry humor.
