Known as “Colombian darling” and “Soundsister”, Lido Pimienta jumps back and forth from electronic beats, analog synths and Afro-Colombian rhythms to out-of-this-world chanting. The release of her first album Color LP opened the gate for several collaborations with artists in Canada and around the world, making her one of the most prolific song-writer, lyricist and an improv virtuoso of her generation.
“It’s pop music as deftly realized as it is imaginatively conceived, and that is a rare thing indeed.” – Silent Shout
“Literate pop…A synth-specked lament for youthful idealism…A great new song from Toronto’s most sarcastically swaggering Anglophile.” – Chart Attack
“mysterious…infectious…sexy as fuck.”
“…boasting waves of layered percussion—his tribal drumming is accented with cowbell, bongos, and more, before menacing synths wash away the good times—with his tracks warping from dancefloor scorchers, to deranged bangers, to arthouse disco.” -AUX.tv
“[Zoo Owl]‘s thoughtful left-field compositions draw from a grab bag of stylistic influences including IDM, dancehall, house and hip-hop. The result is catchy musical collages that often eschew conventional verse/chorus structure – but get stuck in your head all the same.” -NOW
“Hilarious and beautiful”
“The newly released, *Fresh Face Forward* is filled with driving, energetic post-something. Who cares what it’s post, it’s great.” -The Coast
International Zombies Of Love
IZOL is the ever-evolving music project of Mike Farrell (of Pariahs). IZOL has toured in support of Perfume Genius and shared bills with the likes of Howe Gelb, DD/MM/YYYY, Pinback and Limblifter.
“This is future rave, and Tenderness is one of the few acts that can pair chopped-up bangers alongside cat-meow samples.” aux.tv
“fuse[s] seemingly disparate styles, crossing cultural and chronological divides nearly effortlessly.” -Decoder magazine
