If Vancouver Sleep Clinic really were the name of a sleep clinic focused on helping people get past their insomnia, it’d probably be a total failure. For the life of me, I can’t imagine ever falling asleep to Tim Bettinson’s atmospheric and ambient alt pop, so often doused in spectacularly haunting electronic production. I feel very fortunate to have caught VSC on tour at intimate SF dive Bottom Of The Hill last spring, and I can assure you, not a single person in the audience dozed off to his beautifully melting music. The contrary was true instead; we were all transfixed and intoxicated by VCS’s music from his excellent 2017 debut album Revival. And now Vancouver Sleep Clinic has released yet another stunning escapade into the hidden chambers of our hearts, a gorgeously moving indie electro meets alt-pop ballad named Silver Lining. The single follows on VCS’s recent EP, Therapy Phase 01, which featured guest appearances by the likes of Raury and THEY.’s Drew Love. Tim Bettinson explains: “Silver Lining is about watching someone become too good for you. I’ve lost people I care about to the limelight before, and while you’re trying to be happy for them, sometimes you just miss the days when everything was so simple.” Find out about Vancouver Sleep Clinic’s 2018 tour dates, here.

City Tribe is a San Francisco indie folk rock band that I recently found out about thanks to Sofar Sounds (Songs From A Room), which throws private, intimate living room shows all around the world. I’ve been gratefully attending the San Francisco events for a few months now, and it’s such a magical night to get to partake in each and every time. City Tribe was one of the bands at the show a couple months or so back, and they were excellent in the intimate setting. They have a lovable, endearing California sunshine tinged sound. They recently released a brand new single titled Silver Lining, and it’s definitely worth taking a listen.

Here’s a super brighty, sunshiny surf rock/indie pop tune from duo Guards. One half of Guards happens to be Cults lead singer Madelin Follin’s brother. The siblings certainly like to dabble in similar types of music. Silver Lining is airy, catchy, and fun. After all those dark electronic tunes, it’s really a reprieve and so weightless to listen to. Guards’ debut album In Guards We Trust will release in Feburary of 2013.
