Winnipeg slowcore dream-poppers Living Hour are back with their new LP Someday Is Today. The record was written up in Exclaim (“luxuriating in languid textures… balancing stormy swells with long stretches of gossamer softness”), Pitchfork (the songs “lead with magnetic atmosphere and melodies, venturing briefly into fuzz and dissonance only to return to an earworm”), Brooklyn Vegan (“lush, hushed pop”) and Northern Transmissions (“an album of delicate human connection and melancholic vulnerability”), and the band were featured in Our Culture. The LP was recorded in Winnipeg at No Fun Club, with Melina Duterte (aka Jay Som), Samur Khouja (Cate LeBon) and myself each handling production & mixing on a third of the record; Sarah Register mastered the album. I loved working with the band on these 4 songs (December Forever, Curve, Exploding Rain, and the single Miss Miss Miss), guiding them from afar and building the arrangements around their studio experiments. Someday Is Today is out now on Kanine Records.
Winnipeg-based slowcore experimentalists Living Hour have released their latest single “Miss Miss Miss”. The song was featured on Stereogum, Under The Radar, Our Culture, and other zines, and comes with a video by Rebekah Hepner. “Miss Miss Miss” is one of 4 songs that I produced & mixed from their upcoming album Someday Is Today and it was an immediate standout to me. The band and I traded ideas and files back & forth, layering the arrangement and playing around as we went, to arrive at this blissed out single. The album was recorded at No Fun Club in Winnipeg, and also features songs produced & mixed by Melina Duerte (Jay Som) and Samur Khouja (Cate LeBon). Someday Is Today is out September 2 on Kanine Records.
