the weekend wind down ft. firewoodpoetry


Well it’s superbowl sunday for some, but for others it’s that day of the week where you just want to listen to some slow and chiller beats after a weekend of dancing your neck out.

Here is a little treat from a local artist FirewoodPoetry. Representing the pacific north-west, splitting her time between Saltspring Island and Vancouver, Trinity Forbes seems to have gained some momentum and is working hard on a new release to kickstart this year. Keep her on your radar for the next release (because after the sneak peak I got a few days ago) I can hardly wait to get my ears on it and hopefully catch her live show in the near future.

Make sure the sub is plugged in, light up the hooka, layback on the couch and enjoy this menacing, dark and steady EP. Here is The Scientist by FirewoodPoetry

James Blake – Retrograde

Its easy to see that dubstep has lost its way. You don’t need to see the glow stick toting shirtless fellows to know that we’ve fucked up. Fortunately, when the bros were busy throwing down, they failed to notice the rise of the next generation of bass music. Now, its time to crown our prince of dubstep. James Blake.

Retrograde is an ethereal yet powerful single off James’ sophomore album. It’s a hauntingly beautiful song that hints of another amazing album from the young Brit.

The album, Overgrown, drops on April 8th, 2013. You can also catch James at the Commodore Ballroom on April 25th.

weekend wind down ft. Liar

This weekend chillout with Liar’s new album released on Montreal’s record label Infinite Machine. This reminds me of Burial but a little less ambient and more upbeat.. I think the amount of music coming out of Montreal means I need to go/move there..

Here is Liar : Strange Love

indulge my friends..

love, sq.face

the weekend wind down ft. Sean Carey : Hoyas

It’s that time of the week.

Time to cool down, slow down and wind down..

Delve into the sonic atmosphere of Hoyas. A new EP by Sean Carey (known for being the drummer of Bon Iver). Having studied percussion professionally, it is no accident this EP has that contemporary minimal percussion sounds fused w/ melody and ambient vocals similar to that of Jamie XX and James Blake.

Layback and listen.

the weekend wind down ft. Burial & Massive Attack

This is a limited 12″ release from Massive Attack and Burial that came out about a year ago. The chillest, distant high-hat sound of Burial fused with the beauty and eloquence of the vocals makes this record, the best contender for our weekly sunday chill sessions…

Massive Attack & Burial : ‘Four Walls’


On the same record Burial did a remix of Paradise Circus (which as I mentioned before is the best dubstep track of all time in my books–the Zeds Dead mix). Get lost in the sound of Hope Sandoval’s voice. Here is Paradise Circus : Massive Attack (Burial Remix)


Easy sunday, kids.
