Waitress – ‘Delay Our Time’

waitress-delay our time

Waitress (formerly The Foggy Notions) have posted a pair of gazey, droney songs from their forthcoming debut album ‘Delay Our Time’ (out next month). The Saskatoon duo (Janice Weber and Kalon Beaudry) come armed with stormy boy/girl vocal melodies and loads of atmosphere. The two songs are very different, the title track being a stadium-ready rocker (a la Ride), whereas ‘Engram’ is an introverted slow burner. Both are worth your minutes!

The Moas – ‘Blue Light’

the-moas-the-moas-artwork

2013 and 2014 have been packed with some of the best shoegaze and dream pop in ages. That an album as strong and engaging as The Moas self-titled debut didn’t make it to SBWR when it was released in August speaks to the massive quality and quantity of reverb-soaked output the world over. Featuring lovely, lazily swoony vocals; complex, ever-changing time structures; dream-pop melodies; and just enough reverb to fuzz up the edges, the album garnered well-deserved positive notice locally. The Saskatoon foursome explore catchy indie-pop melodies laid out by bending guitars and a peculiar organ (‘Blue Light’) as well as slow, dreamy tunes with boomy bass (‘No Colonial’) and a cohesive indie-rock sound that makes it all shine attractively. The band is already hard at work recording new material, so check Bandcamp to get caught up! [by Dave Lytton]
