Toronto duo Free N Losh have turned in a grand future bass remix of fellow Canadian’s Zeds Dead’s Collapse, featuring Memorecks. Free N Losh give the big hit a more uplifting, melodic beauty, with a weightlessness that’s far more honeyed and soothing, but they also retain some of the brooding simmer of the original song. Poignant vocals pair up with elegant, wispy piano, while incredibly fiery and bold saxophone makes a magnificent appearance in the sultry last third of the song, courtesy of Tayler Rix from the UK. It’s a cinematic journey, one that I possibly enjoy even more than the original.

Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Stakes

April 1, 2014

Months ago, I noticed the support act for London Grammar’s tour was listed as Vancouver Sleep Clinic. I was giddy with excitement and ready to hit up the San Francisco stop early just to catch VSC live. I’ve fallen deeply in love with the Australian trio’s beautiful, ambient pop music that at times reminded me of Bon Iver, other times James Vincent Mcmorrow, and still other moments, Iceland’s Asgeir or even Ry X or Sigur Ros. VSC’s music is gorgeous. Sadly, they pulled out of the tour, though I was still quite happy with catching Norway’s Highasakite as the replacement support. A few weeks ago, Vancouver Sleep Clinic dropped their Winter EP, which includs many tunes I’ve already featured on IHM, such as the heavenly tracks Vapour, Collapse, and Flaws. What I haven’t shared yet is the wispy, goosebump inducing Stakes. Stream it below, off MrSuicideSheep’s Youtube channel, and drift away to the amazing falsettos and dazzling production. What an amazing EP…

Australian trio Vancouver Sleep Clinic continues to make me swoon with their beautiful, ethereal, ambient pop music. Their debut EP Winter comes out later this year, and on it is the atmospheric gem Flaws, as well as previously featured Collapse. Last time, I compared their sound to Bon Iver. The comparison certainly still stands for Flaws, with perhaps the bedroom pop dreaminess of early Youth Lagoon as well as a touch of James Vincent McMorrow, to boot. Revisit Collapse here. I’m looking forward to seeing VSC open for London Grammar this spring (then hopping over to Popscene for Birds Of Tokyo and Echosmith, time permitting). It’s going to be a great night. Again.

One more luscious cover for the day, and it’s a downtempo one, too! Australian trio Vancouver Sleep Clinic teamed up with producer GXNXVS for this sultry, slow burning cover of Drake’s Hold On We’re Going Home (which is one of the most covered songs this past year, is it not?). Vancouver Sleep Clinic has drummed up quite a buzz since last year, and they are another band to make a splash this year. Revisit their beautiful songs Vapour and Collapse below, previously featured with much zealousness. There’s a chance Bon Iver might not be releasing anything new for a long time, if ever. Vancouver Sleep Clinic might feel a modicum of that empty hole in your heart with their similarly styled falsetto vocals. They also remind me much of RY X and Asgeir.

Lingering with Australian artists on this new one by Brisbane trio Vancouver Sleep Clinic, led by the talented, young Tim Bettinson. Collapse is a downtempo, ambient electronic pop song that’s filled with an airy lightness and ethereal beauty. The vocals easily beg comparison to Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. It’s hard to believe that Tim is only 17. He’ll be releasing their debut EP in 2014, and it just might be stupendous. Earlier this year, they already amazed many ears with the delicate track Vapour, which you can hear below.
