TOPS – 'PICTURE YOU STARING'

Montreal’s TOPS are following up their sublime + maddeningly slept on debut (and a handful of equally worthy singles) with a new full-length record, Picture You Staring, out September 2 via Arbutus.

listen: Electric Youth – “Runaway”

ELECTRIC YOUTH – "RUNAWAY"

Electric Youth‘s long-in-the-works debut LP is finally set for release later this fall, and it seems like the band is finally ready to start talking about it with the release of “Runaway,” the first bit of new material we’ve heard since Innerworld was first teased back in November. And like the tracks that have come before it (and as the cover art implies), it’s a pleasant escalation through the clouds, cascading atop itself in a dreamlike nostalgia. Innerworld is out September 30 via Last Gang/Secretly Canadian.

SINEAD HARNETT

listen: Saint Pepsi – “Fiona Coyne”

SAINT PEPSI

Vaporwave wunderkind Saint Pepsi turns his attention toward Degrassi High’s favourite socialite tween Fiona Coyne on his first single for Carpark, marking his first outing on a label and debuting vocal chops we didn’t know he had, which as Fader points out, carry some notable Chaz Bundick overtones. The Fiona Coyne/Fall Harder 7″ is out August 12.
