Stay With Us by Seoul


Conducting a search on the web for information about ambient pop group, Seoul, only results in gaining an absurd knowledge of the capital of South Korea.  Now, I obviously have nothing against South Korea, but in the indie blog world, knowing that Seoul was founded in 18 BCE by Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea, really does me no good.  Anyway, the Seoul that I was searching for appears to hail from Montreal and only has one single to their name – the hazy, soft “Stay With Us.”  The debut single is the kind of track that makes everything around you fade into nothingness.  This is great music to get lost in and makes me eager for the group’s first album, I Become a Shade, due out later this year.  Enjoy.

Vapour by Vancouver Sleep Clinic


You couldn’t really expect a band named Vancouver Sleep Clinic to create anything other than calm, trance-inducing melodies, could you?  It’s not like we were expecting  Vancouver Sleep Clinic‘s first single, “Vapour” to be an entry on the Headbanger’s Ball (does that still exist?).  The bedroom project of high school student, Tim Bettinson, VSC  looks to be a promising solo effort that exudes a depth and maturity beyond Bettinson’s teenage years.  “Vapour” is a song for those who are jonesing to fade away for just a few minutes or maybe find a cure for their insomnia.  A song that induces a little bit of shut-eye may seem like an insult, but listen to “Vapour” and Bettinson’s…well, vaporous voice, and you’ll realize it’s a compliment.  Enjoy.
