Canadian quartet Holy Fuck have always been happy to plow a distinctly lone furrow. Never ones to chase the limelight or hop on any genre-wagon that happens to be passing by, they’ve played by their own rules for the past part of 15 years and five albums.It’s for that reason that they’ve become one of the country’s finest, and most influential, exports, with their widescreen, technicolour, crescendo-heavy and highly danceable sound often finding itself imitated, but never bettered.
Even after attracting mainstream attention thanks to appearing on the soundtracks to both Breaking Bad and Mr Robot, the band has continued to go against the grain in a cultural landscape that that prioritises and lionises the safe and predictable over the marginal and single-minded.
Arriving a moment where attention spans are shot and anxieties are going into overdrive, Deleter, Holy Fuck’s fifth studio LP, is a typically full-bodied affair. Polyrhythmic and pleasure-focused, Deleter sees Brian Borcherdt, Graham Walsh, Matt Schulz, and Matt “Punchy” McQuaid taking their signature super-dense sound to new creative heights, seamlessly fusing the gauzy drive of krautrock and deep house’s dreamy ineffability, expertly blending purring motorik percussion with the sort of fuggy synthetic fizz and tang that so often sends clubbers into states of unselfconscious rapture.
Moon King is the synthpop project of Toronto-born singer & producer Daniel Benjamin. In the early 2010’s Daniel was part of the flourishing electronic music scene in Montreal, performing as a touring musician with Grimes and Sean Nicholas Savage while beginning to write & produce his own music. A 2016 move to Detroit and immersion in that city’s vibrant dance music and DJ culture began to influence his own recordings, and a collection of new material found its way back to Montreal label Arbutus Records (TOPS, Sean Nicholas Savage), who offered to release it. Hamtramck ’16, named for the Detroit-area neighborhood, was released in the summer of 2017, documenting Moon King’s shift towards disco and dance music. He’s toured extensively in North America, Europe and the UK with artists like Men I Trust, Mr Twin Sister, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. In February 2019 he announced Voice of Lovers, his first full length for Arbutus Records.
