Dupe Shop: Staff Picks – Volume 6

Omar Bongo – 2019

Somalian folk artist Omar Bongo’s follow up to last year’s staff favourite “Gor Gor” which was recorded inside the Istar restaurant in Etobicoke by Dave Ewenson. I somehow like this new release even better than the last. For fans of traditional finger picked oud tunes.

This collaboration between Memorex and Mort Garcon brings us energetic electro / cold-wave. Sounds like getting cyber-attacked and secretly enjoying it. Comes in a shiny package (literally).


Michael C. Duguay – Summer Flight Lasts Forever

A sweet collection of unreleased acoustic versions of songs by singer-songwriter Michael C. Duguay. These songs strum along at a leisurely pace and carry your mind to a simpler place.


Point No Point – Drift

Brought to us via German label Spati Palace, Point no Point’s “Drift” is an experimental combination of folk, drone , electronic and pop. It’s a somber collection of dreamy, hazy sounds from the mind of Jana Sotzko.
