I was very surprised earlier in 2015 that Montreal/Toronto musician Doldrums aka Airick Woodhead of ex-Spiral Beach was signed to Sub Pop and saying goodbye to being on Arbutus Records. Now comes the release of the second album called The Air Conditioned Nightmare that dropped on April 7, 2015. Ten tracks mix of electro-spastic dance …
To end things all Arboretum Music + Arts Festival. There was a after/closing party that took place at St. Alban’s Church. Closing off the party was Doldrums.
It looks like Doldrums is making some waves with his weird experimental dancey pop music. He’s done some DIY EPs on cassette tapes in the past, and now he’s finally released a proper debut EP call “Empire Sounds“. It’s six tracks of crazy, fun experimental pop music. Right now it’s available to stream on Altered Zone.
Anyone remembers the Toronto band Spiral Beach? It’s sad that the band parted ways. Dorian Wolf is now with Austra. Airick Woodhead is doing his own thing called Doldrums. Doldrums is far different from the Spiral Beach days. The music is more on the experimental weird dancey pop sound. Have a listen to his mixtape.
