HoLy F*uck!

Sometimes i need to be pushed to listen to something, hence the case with Holy Fuck and when i finally give in it is usually a good thing. After previously passing over the latest Canadian export Holy Fuck and their debut album "LP" it was their track 'Lovely Allen' that made me a lover. Hailing from Toronto the story goes that band members, Brian Borcherdt, Graham Walsh, Matt McQuade, Loel Campbell, Matt Schulz, Mike Bigelow, Glenn Milchem and Kevin Lynn constructed their multi-layered, chaotic, stumbling dance music through live shows and performances before moving into a studio. During this journey they added sounds found in random every day objects, lo-tech battery operated keyboards, and children's toys. The result is a sound that impressed fellow countrymen Wolf Parade enough to invite them to open a few dates for them. Spots at Coachella, Glastonbury, SXSW, and Montreal Jazz Festival introduced them to the rest of the world. Electronic music has made a huge impact on my music library this year which has been most enjoyable and an exciting journey. Maybe it is because at various points throughout my day there is nothing better than hearing something that makes you smile or dance, especially when you are stuck in the land of contracts. Lack of creativity is what pushed me into starting this little blog, so hey sometimes a little brute force is necessary. So go ahead- push your friends...
