Dupe Shop: Staff Picks – Volume 7

Man Meets Bear – Shadow Falls, Echoes Juniper

Delicate, ethereal folk music that bleeds in and out of ambient sounds. Feels like drifting in and out of sleep alone on a train, on your way to meet someone you love but haven’t seen in some time. Beautiful album art by Petra Glynt.


The Fact – Demo 2019

Extra heavy mid-tempo Toronto hardcore courtesy of Homie Shit Magazine. If your life is missing that bit of extra ‘ommphf’ or whatever.


Sore Eyelids – Avoiding Life

Shoegazey emo from Gothenburg, Sweden. Lots of hazy, bending guitar riffs and sustained reverb drenched vocals.


No Colour Blue – S/T

Beautiful ambient collaboration between local electronic artists Castle If and Saturn City. Long and soft drone. Super relaxing, good for meditation if you’re into that.

Dupe Shop: Staff Picks – Volume 3

HUH – 8

Extremely hectic, improvisational noise jazz all the way from Tokyo. Guaranteed to make you mess up the portions of whatever meal you’re cooking. So stressful!


Waxing – Through the Deep End

Debut from Toronto’s Waxing (lead by Cam Fraser). Minimal and clever indie / emo rock. Groovy and sweet – will make you never want to leave Sea World.


Nutrients – Nutrients

Toronto’s Nutrients create loungey, breathy pop rock. Extremely easy to listen to, awkwardly sentimental. Feels like practicing to ask your date out to prom in front of the mirror.
