The Soft Moon @ Berbati's
The band's latest production, "Total Decay" EP (2011), is just as dark and emotional as the first album. The track below is #3 on the Total Decay EP and it's lusciously hopeless. Listening to it makes me feel like I'm going to round the corner and get chased by a mohawked, chain wielding skate gang. Really looking forward to the show on Saturday, needless to say!
Wild Nothing @ Berbati's
Wild Nothing is the creation of Jack Tatum, a 23-year old Virginia native. Tatum released his first album, "Gemini" in 2010 while finishing up his college degree in Blacksburg. Tatum's latest album is "Nocturne" (August 2012). Check out Track #5 below. :D The album is basically a slew of catchy, toe-tapping, head bobbing awesomeness.
Trust @ Holocene
Trust is a darkwave/synthpop band from Toronto, not to be confused with the British heavy metal band of the same name. ;) The band formed in 2010 and it consists of Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski. They released their debut, full-length album entitled "TRST" in February 2012. Prior to that, Alfons and Postepski produced the "Candy Walls" EP in 2011. The track below is #7 on the TRST album.
Here's what critic Luis-Enrique Arrazola of the National Post had to say about this band: "Trust gave an outstanding performance proving that they’re an act worthy of all the hype. With a set far past midnight, they’re the perfect ending to a wild night in the city, taking you on a relentless trip through a set list dripping with sexual tension before winding down to the last pulses of the synthesizer." Needless to say, I'm ready to dance my ass off at the Holocene come Saturday night.
The band's latest production is the "Sulk" EP released in January 2012. It consists of two tracks: #1 Sulk and #2 The Dazzle. It's fantastic! Track #1 is below. Check out the band's SoundCloud page to keep up with their latest releases.
