Montreal-based (via Vancouver and Beijing) lounge-noir producer Thin Gaze played up on our rooftop a month or so back, and while that was a pretty stressful affair (noise complaints, near falls, roof saggage etc.), his low-lit experimental pop definitely soothed the situation. Quietly deconstructing traditional Leonard Cohen-esque brooders with a penchant for dark R&B vibes (and chopped/screwed signifiers) of Omarion, tracks like "Geisty" have a heavily filmic quality. All those manipulated vocals and looped guitars give a strange interplay across the tape as well as a roadweary haze.
