THIS WEEK IN ARTS VOL.1
Rich week for this first edition, don’t miss out! From Paris to LA to Toronto, here is what mattered to us these last days.
Dyson Stringer Cloher’s self titled debut album is out through Milk! Records this October. With Dyson based in L.A and Stringer in Toronto, the band chose to meet halfway to make a record at Jeff Tweedy’s ‘The Loft’ in Chicago. The results are what you might expect – inspired guitar playing and exceptional songwriting – warm, heartfelt and real.
Guerilla Toss’ “Plants” is a disco-post-punk-prog epic about the perceived psychosis of the fictional protagonist, Lara. Based off the books, What A Plant Knows and The Hidden Life Of Trees, the song combats the anti-spiritual western notion that plants are devoid of all communication, when, in fact, there is an entire language of which we are “blissfully unaware.” The track also explores the old-fashioned idea of a woman being crazy, when, in reality, she simply isn’t being heard.
