Just when I was starting to lose interest in sample-based electronic music, Anthony Ellect comes along and breaths some fresh life into the genre.  There isn’t exactly one thing about Anthony’s music that is innovative, completely distinctive or revolutionary, however, tracks like ‘Debt’ show a lot of talent in the producer.  Based around one warped sample of “cause I was falling in love with you”, Anthony constructs a stunning tracks engulfed in huge synths and skittering percussion.  ‘Debt’ was just put out on Anthony’s new Beverly Inn EP and if he keeps putting out great releases like this I see no reason why Anthony can’t eventually be up there with James Blake or Nicholas Jaar.  Stream the entire EP at his bandcamp

Two brothers based out of Halifax, Walrus are bringing some atmospheric indie-pop vibes on their latest Sisters EP.  Walrus’ music lies somewhere in between Deerhunter’s instrumentation and the wailing singing of Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah!.  On the track ‘Nothing Left to Say’ these influences come out pretty strong with reverb heavy strumming and great atmospherics.  Let’s be honest, the singing isn’t what is going to draw you in about Walrus, it’s everything else that surrounds it that makes Sisters such a good listen.  Stream ‘Nothing Left to Say’ below and stream the entire album at their bandcamp
