The Luyas Offer Up New Album Title Track, “Too Beautiful To Work”

Listen: The Luyas: "Too Beautiful to Work"

The Luyas’ debut album, Too Beautiful To Work, will be out on Dead Oceans on February 22nd. It will feature Owen Pallett as well as Arcade Fire’s Sara Neufeld. The Canadians, however, have already made the LP’s title track available to download over on Pitchfork. “Too Beautiful To Work”¬†sounds deceivingly simple with Jessie Stein’s soft high-pitched voice but the music and lyrics form a never ending whirlwind of layers that make this title track really interesting.

Parlovr Preview ‘Heaven/Hell’ on Stereogum!

Parlovr Canadian power trio Parlovr have been exploding onto the scene with their infectious indie pop since their self titled debut was released in 2008 on Dine Alone Records. Since then the boys have been working on their upcoming EP Heaven/Hell/Big/Love which will be released October 19th.

The idea for the EP was based around a song “Hell,Heaven” which the trio were playing continually at live shows. Heaven/Hell/Big/Love was created as 4 or 5 pieces that weren’t directly tied together in a specific theme and were just written without any rehearsal before studio time. The result is an EP split with “Hell,Heaven” which is based on “thoughts of a childhood spent in the middle east” and “Big Love” which is about a “girlfriend who has the ‘look of a man.” Along with the two title tracks are “Where is the Sun” and “Tehching Hsieh” which both add surrealism and romantic dreaminess to the EP.

You can preview “Hell,Heaven” ¬†on Stereogum HERE and be sure to catch Parlovr at Pop Montreal October 2nd at Cabaret Just Pour Rire. The band will also soon be announcing US tour dates for this fall.
