The Wilderness Of Manitoba: The Alchemist

Canadian alternative folk rock band The Wilderness Of Manitoba have gone through some changes since the release of their last album, Across The Dark, in 2017. Founding member Will Whitwham has teamed up with Victoria Carr (vocals, acoustic guitar), Tavo Diez de Bonilla (bass, vocals), and Adam Balsam (drums, vocals, guitar, keyboards). Lead single The Alchemist, an exploration about the fleeting nature of time and using dreams as a means of travel, serves as a taste for the new full-length, Farewell To Cathedral, due for release in the Fall. Glorious vocal harmonies are playing catch with the acoustic and electric guitars. The video is a mix of footage shot by Whitwham over the course of all four seasons.

Lore City: Participation Mystique

Dark wave art rock duo Lore City relies on tension and release for the songs on their new album Participation Mystique. Laura Mariposa Williams (vocals, keyboard, guitar) and Eric Angelo Bessel (percussion, keyboard, guitar). Adding elements of post-rock, ambient and a pinch of psychedelica allowed them to create slow-moving, cinematic soundscapes that unfold like flowers in the first rays of the sun.

Repetitive motifs push the songs forward, with the vocals hovering above in a way that is both captivating eerie. They don't use many words, but make sure that each one of them counts. Get ready for an exploration of a dreamlike, transformative state, and enjoy a musical trip without any side effects.
