Dupe Shop: Staff Picks – Volume 5

Labradoodle – Life is Better

Local weirdos take you on a fantastical voyage. Temperamental indie pop. Children’s music for adults.


Short Bloom – People Patterns

Local DJ, producer and performer Sachin Mohindra sculpts delicate electronic ambient music. There is a strong house music influence tying all these experimental and pop sounds together. Meticulous dance music for your soul.


Nico Paulo – Wave Call

Nico (originally from Portugal) has been living in Toronto and releasing elegant, dreamy folk pop that will take your breath away. Catchy and heartbreaking, huge recommendation.


valyri – home, for the first time

Experimental and intelligent sound arrangements. Blending harsh noise and ethereal lo-fi ambient. Highly unpredictable and engrossing.

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.
