New Canadiana :: Sheer Agony – 7″

Sheer Agony - 7 inch
Montreal’s heppest combo graduate to a pop PhD with this master class platter. 2/4 of the dearly departed Play Guitar and the jazz hands of Silver Dapple have been obsessive-compulsively honing their chops in afterparty venues and analog basements before unleashing eight minutes of jangular heaven on an unsuspecting public. Pay your respects at the temple of tone and let it wash over you like underwater moonlight.

Sheer Agony – Good Cats Go To Heaven

New Canadiana :: Silver Dapple – English Girlfriend

Caked from top to bottom in a thick simmer of fuzz, Silver Dapple choose to fight amplifier feedback with massive walls of unclean guitar overdrive. English Girlfriend’s honey dripping sounds echo back two decades at Black Tambourine’s feminine noise-pop, its finely wound songwriting tangible through humble hooks and fairly removed expressionism. À dévorer à pleines dents.

Silver Dapple – Song For The Boys

Video :: Silver Dapple – (Pauses) [Dir. Moduli TV]

Cut up collage comp vids of found footage and cable access standouts are good even when they’re done lazily, and they’re endlessly entertaining when someone puts in the effort. Moduli TV has done it well for Silver Dapple, infusing random clips with a thematic narrative. There’s purpose and flow in the shaking, distorted images, and it’s matched by fuzzed-out shoegazing guitars plus stomping and running drums. With strange breaks, disconcerting dance and exercise videos and quick excerpts of VHS garbage, the video is a stand-out on its own; it changes enough to keep you guessing, and every frame seems picked for intrigue and discomfort. The song itself is a mild drug that slowly builds dependence. Female vox soar over thick guitars and bass and the punctuating drums make you pay attention. Altered collage rock done right, and a full-length coming out soon. Get ready to grip, or grip now in advance.
