New Canadiana :: Each Other – Being Elastic

Each Other - Being Elastic

These boys have been pumping out the jams for years with near unrivaled pedigree, and are now off on a tangent of Beatlesisms warring with Womenisms. Monotone harmonies reverberate atop plucky guitar lines and cracked cymbal, tambo-heavy percussion. Each Other hold sway over the mountains of kids mining the past. You can take the boys outta Halifax, but you can’t stop them from pop exploding.

Durant des années, ces garçons ont jammé leur son avec un pedigree presque sans rival. Aujourd’hui, ils entament une bataille sonore entre Beatlesisme et Womenisme. Des harmonies monotones réverbèrent sur de courageuses mélodies de guitares, cymbales craquées et percussions lourdement tambourinées. Each Other ont de l’emprise sur la montagne de gamins qui déterrent le passé. Vous pouvez sortir ces types d’Halifax, mais ne pourrez les empêcher d’exploser dans la pop.

New Canadiana :: Various Artists – Khyber Compilation II

Various Artists - Khyber Compilation II
Halifax’s most endearing/enduring art space, the Khyber, has once again been feted with a compilation of tape tunes from local artists and musicians, most of whom have played/jammed/come of age under the archways, the ballroom, the turret. As with last year’s comp, this is a love letter to something fragile and beautiful and important – moreover, it’s massive (27 songs!), thoughtfully curated and brilliant. There are so many meaty, gorgeous gems here – Monomyth‘s “Anytime” is soaring sweetgaze, while scene vets Scribbler reach achingly fuzzed-out heights with “No Curtains.” The winsome youngsters of ISBN donate a slice of grainy, brainy twang-pop and there are similarly tasty outings from the now-defunct Long Long Long and its ashes, Each Other, risen in Montreal to smile and destroy. There’s a ripper Dog Day track too, and a song from local supergroup Green and Darnelle that nods at the city’s 90’s ghosts and then gnashes them to shreds. Look, I could go on for fucking pages about this tape, I really could, but in the end, I’ll leave with some words from a particular standout, the haunting lament “Wind Came Through” by Former Roommates (who, I think, actually are former roommates): The Khyber needs your love, always, and these songs do too. Listen and linger: this is a sound of a scene piled with riches.

New Canadiana :: Each Other – Traces to Nowhere b/w Sit Still

Each Other - Traces to Nowhere b/w Sit Still
Moments pass; Each Other persists. The Nova Scotian wunderkinds have traversed twisted trails to arrive at these amber-encased oscillations, cramming a Rundgren-esque treasure trove of hooks into two new insta-classics. Paradigmatic pop moves that transcend an already-flawless discography.

New Canadiana :: Each Other – Taking Trips

Each Other - Taking Trips
The boys of Long have taken another extravagant excursion into progressive pop. Their lysergic sequencing of addictive time signatures reaches an all-time high on Taking Trips, as their heroin leads throw us deep into their opium sanctuary. While we dream along their subtle-island vibes, the slow churning fabric of our pop reality begins to fragment, buckling under weight of Each Other’s glorious clamour. Crucial grip.

New Canadiana :: Each Other – Taking Trips

This one’s a total “no duh.” The latest subsidiary of the Long, Long, Long hit factory sheds a few layers of skronk while firing jangular hooks down the assembly line. Space echoes shimmer in an ocean of detached emotion while the tag-team harmonies sound positively fab. Drifting from the Maritimes to Montreal, our heroes have picked up a ringer to man the traps and cast this brilliant kahuna into the wild. A+++.
