THE DEARS thedears.org/
The Dears emerged out of the early Noughties Canadian indie renaissance, cementing their orchestral-pop-noir sound with celebrated debut album End of a Hollywood Bedtime Story, in 2000. In 2001 and 2002, they released the EPs Orchestral Pop Noir Romantique and Protest, as well as a collection of unreleased songs, Nor the Dahlias. In 2003 they released their second full-length album No Cities Left, and a string of highly anticipated shows at SxSW '04 launched their international career. Gang of Losers was released in 2006, was well received by the press, and was shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize. A tumultuous transitory period followed. The Dears emerged, stolid, with another meticulously crafted classic, Missiles (2008), followed later by Degeneration Street (2011) and Times Infinity Volume One (2016) and Times Infinity Volume Two (2017).

LOU CANON loucanon.com/
Singer and multi-instrumentalist Lou Canon has emerged as the vanguard of Toronto’s bedroom electronic movement. With her enveloping, downtempo music, Lou has created a vibe steeped in style and effortless mystique. Her album, Suspicious (co-producer Mark Lawson – Arcade Fire, Basia Bulat), was released via Paper Bag Records in 2017. This is music for nighttime; roiling drumbeats and breathily expressive vocals that lead you through the dark corners of your innermost subconscious. Lou’s intention for each song was “to leave the front door, go south at the end of block, across the freeway, over the toll bridge, through the antenna, riding the waves, beyond the horizon, rising in the hot air, falling like rain, and reverberating in that space between an eardrum and your imagination.” Suspicious does just this—its songs surround and transport the listener, beckoning them down a labyrinth of alluring and synthful beats. youtu.be/vJWkZeLKyFw
