Foxes in Fiction is the Toronto-based project of Warren Hildebrand, an art school dropout with much more than just visual creativity. His music is a diffused type of pop – its mix of electronic and analog artifacts make every Foxes in Fiction song into a dreamy one. With inspirations drawing from suburban life, surrealist expressionism, Brian Eno recording techniques, or even Katy Perry, Hildebrand has been able to get attention from Brooklyn’s Moodgadget Records with a record deal. His latest song “School Night” can be heard in this Pitchfork article. Check it out here, and make sure to pick up his EP “Alberto” out December last week.

Getting into the holiday spirit, Matisyahu has released a new Chanukah single this week with “Miracle”.
The track was produced by Kool Kojak (who assisted Flo Rida, Katy Perry and Ke$ha) and features some catchy beats and gorgeous chimes (it’s a holiday song after all).
Matisyahu said that “there are so many Chirstmas songs out there. i wanted to give the Jewish kids something to be proud of.” He’s streaming the catchy tune on his website and you can find it on iTunes.
Even better, Matisyahu will be touring the East Coast up till the new year! You can catch him:
