Stream Du Tonc’s Remix of Muneshine’s ‘Full Throttle’ for Free

Muneshine had this to say about Du Tonc‘s remix of his track ‘Full Throttle’ in a statement; “Du Tonc’s ‘Darkness’ was a really big song for me. I came across it on Soundcloud when I was first starting to explore making music that wasn’t at least somewhat related to hip hop. I’ve always been a fan of disco, nu-disco and dance music in-general, but there was something special about that track that really grabbed me and continues to stick with me. When ‘Full Throttle’ was mixed and mastered and it came time to consider artists to remix it, Du Tonc was top-of-mind. They found a way to maintain some of it’s original energy, but really shot it deep into outer space as well. I’m so grateful they were down to work together with us on this project, they crushed it!

Lowest of the Low Share Lyric Video for ‘Powerlines’

Veteran Toronto indie rockers Lowest of the Low have shared the lyric video for ‘Powerlines’ from fourth album Do the Right Now, out on September 8 via Pheromone Records.

“‘Powerlines’ is a song about my experiences writing the first Low album, Shakespeare My Butt. I had recently broken up with a long time partner and moved into a punk rock squat with some crazy characters I called friends. Every day I walked through the city with a notebook and drank in bars and went to galleries and shows and hung out in my little bohemian circle of anarchists, punks and poets. I became the protagonist in the movie of my life and the city was a cinematic sidekick and factored into the lyrics like a companion,” frontman Ron Hawkins said in a statement.

The vid is a collaboration with photographer Tom Ryaboi, a pioneer in the art of roof topping. The video reflects Hawkins’ changing relationship with his hometown of Toronto over the years.

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Muneshine’s ‘Full Throttle’ (Featuring The Darcys)

Muneshine has unveiled the cinematic video for ‘Full Throttle’, featuring The Darcys.

The clip is an homage to the 80’s movies and film noir with flourishes from b-movies including a fog-shrouded metropolis, a dancer and a hero in the form on a sports car.

“I met (‘Full Throttle’ director) RJ (Sanchez) through Geoff McLean (Vision Film Co.) when I was on the hunt for an exciting new director for my 2015 single, ‘Sunshine’. I hadn’t seen much of his work, but Geoff’s the man and his taste is impeccable, so that suggestion was all I needed to hear. Needless to say, RJ knocked ‘Sunshine’ out of the park, so when I finished up ‘Full Throttle’ with Darcys, I knew exactly where to go for that fire. The only ‘must-have’ I put on RJ was my need for a sexy 80’s sports car (preferably a Lamborghini Countach – my all-time favorite automobile) and he took it from there. We couldn’t source the Countach, but he got his hands on a cherry red Magnum P.I. Ferrari, and who can hate on that?! RJ gets all the props for this masterpiece, I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out,” Muneshine said in a statement.

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Illyin Pipes’ ‘Waking Up’

Toronto’s Illyin Pipes have unveiled the video for ‘Waking Up’ from their debut EP Spaces.

They filmed the video while they were touring England and it provides a taste of what listeners can expect on the EP. In an e-mail, they described the clip as being, “a nostalgic look at a carefree summer with a dark undertone.”

“I was struggling with a few things while trying to maintain an illusion of positivity and balance. The dichotomy of stability and disorder is present in ‘Waking Up’ as well as the remainder of the EP’s songs, even if that wasn’t intentional when we wrote them,” Jill, Illyin Pipes vocalist said in a statement.
