Orange/Gold/Red is a collaboration between long lost cousins Andrew Gregory and Kate Copeland. The songs — written, composed, and mixed by Andrew — draw inspiration from his personal experiences, vulnerable thoughts and ruminations. Production features a growing collection of vintage synthesizers, field recordings, dusty drum machines, coffee cans and jars, and a beat-up Fender Stratocaster. Kate grew up singing backup vocals for her father’s folk band and later studied music composition at conservatory. She and Andrew first met in April 2013, and went to the studio to collaborate. Andrew is now in the process of composing a full-length for the duo.
Check out their sample below:

Ladies and gentleman — Jonny Dylan Hughes, without the “H” thank you very much. Hughes does a few different things, which make him sexier as an artist. He has a couple different music projects and dabbles in graphic design and runs a style blog as well. The music? Your share of high quality indie-electro rock; worth checking out. A good mix of local acts like Teen Daze, Young Liars, etc… throw a bit of Beach House in there and you’ve got Hughes’ recipe.

In the words of Trissy Manes “so good”. In case you don’t know, these cats are from nope, United States (literally what it says on their Soundcloud); awesome. This band of cheeky heroes are inspired to make their music through color, light, shapes and terrestrial bodies — you’ll get it once you take a listen. They are good. Chillwave w/ a hint of shoe gaze hipster beat. Yeah, let’s go with that. Enjoy your TGIF with their original mix below…

Our friends from Trails and Ways are on tour! Check out if they’re going to be in a town near you and download their final single for the EP “Tereza”. A pulsing, dreamy number that takes place out on the desolate coast of northeastern Brazil. Sung by Emma Oppen, the track started from playing Tom Jobim chords over a Radio Dept. beat.

Still Life Still blend high energy post-punk and catchy hooks with the same ease as Arts & Crafts label alumni Bloc Party and Phoenix. We think you guys will like this, Winnie sure does…

I stayed the whole time. I stayed for the encore.
For those of you who don’t know, Atlas Genius are an indie rock band from Adelaide, South Australia. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Keith Jeffery and Michael Jeffery on drums.
The show was good, but more importantly was the crowd they pulled — in Vancouver. They were all lined up at the front of the stage before the opener went on. Atlas Genius are talented group. They seem to have enough momentum at the moment to break even, and if they play their cards right it should lead somewhere. Download their single “Centered on You” for free below and catch them the next time they’re playing near you, it’s worth a look.
