Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy is the solo violin project of Owen Pallett (Arcade Fire, Hidden Cameras). The songs are about ghosts, romance, cooking, fantasy fiction and guilt. Why call it FINAL FANTASY?

Handsome Furs

Cold. Alien. Unfeeling. These are but three of the misnomers historically assigned to electronic pop music. Yes, Wendy Carlos accompanied Stanley Kubrick’s dystopian vision of A Clockwork Orange with crude synthesizers, but that was 40 years ago! Forbidden Planet and its unnerving soundtrack by Bebe and Louis Barron haven’t been contempora... more info

The Blakes

The Blakes, praised by Pitchfork for their "swampy guitars, twitchy rhythms and power pop vocal harmonies", recall the stinging catchiness of early Who, Kinks, and other spitfire rock bands. There's a fine line between inspiration and imitation and as The Blakes have shown in their brief career, they know exactly how to keep on the good side of t... more info
