As we reach the end of the year, plenty of people are offering up their best of 2015 lists, but I’ve always felt uncomfortable making a best albums of 2015 list because it’s impossible for me to have enough time to evaluate all the well received full length albums that were released this year. Despite the sheer amount of albums I purchase and enjoy, there are so many more that I don’t have the time to listen to in full. But, if I were to make a top albums list for this year, somewhere on that list would undoubtedly be Purity Ring’s sophomore album Another Eternity. Corin and Megan offered up such another euphoric dose of their glitch hop and future pop resplendence on the album, for which they also supported with a magnificent tour earlier this year. Today, the much beloved Canadian duo, who’ve gone from playing tiny little dive venues to huge cavernous spaces and somehow managed to retain an intimate charm and a bewitching mystique, unveiled a video for Another Eternity track heartsigh. Megan James lurches and tumbles through a backdrop of darkness and glowing shapes and lanterns, much reminding me of Purity Ring’s live show. Any reason to revisit heartsigh or any song from Another Eternity is much welcome here.

Purity Ring’s New S0ulja Boy Cover!

February 11, 2013

What a MONDAY this is turning out to be! Thank you, music machine! Canadian indie electronic duo Purity Ring dropped something new too! The future pop act covered S0ulja Boy’s Grammy (pun intended for last night’s festivities?), and anything Purity Ring creates or touches puts a great big smile on my face. The excellent cover is more straightfoward and light for Purity Ring, missing some of the heavier bass and witchy glitchiness of their original work, but it’s still more than welcome in my books! They’re going on tour again this Spring, and tickets are quickly selling out. I’ve seen them live in a small venue, but may have to hit them up yet again this time around.

OFFICIAL VID: Purity Ring – Lofticries

November 12, 2012

Yesssssssssssss. Canadian future pop duo Purity Ring have been silent for the past few months, but never fear, we have a brand video for Shrines track Lofticries! It’s another excellent song off their wonderful debut. It’s dark, electric, heavy, and filled with textured atmosphere. And as always, Megan James’ vocals are enchanting and ethereal. I caught these guys live some time ago at a sold out show, and boy, it’s well worth seeing them live, let me tell you that. It’s a full on experience, and their awesome sound and touch linked lighting rigs and cocoon lanterns only add more magic to it. Ahh… it’s nice to listen to Purity Ring again.
