Audible/Visual Hoots: Fitness Club Fiasco, Daniel Romano, Selina Koop and the Blank

Another busy week of submissions, so here are a couple of tracks and videos we’ve received recently.

goldmineFitness Club Fiasco- “Goldmine”

If you’d like a bit of joyous synth-pop to add to your collection, look no further. The band is more or less a sister band to Old English—the two acts share Matt Henderson and sometimes Jess Janz. Fitness Club Fiasco, though, relies much more heavily on synths, and that’s okay with us. “Goldmine,” the band’s first single since reforming in Canada, is a gem. All of the band’s members contribute vocals over top of a steady barrage of synths. It’s hard to not feel elated when hearing this—it might also be difficult to refrain from dancing.

Daniel Romano- Pinball Sessions

We can’t stream anything here, but we figured this link is well worth linking to. Check out the Pinball Sessions’ website where you can download a free, four-track recording Daniel Romano did with this Guelph-based organization. As if a free Daniel Romano recording isn’t awesome enough, two of the four tracks are unreleased. What are you waiting for?

Selina Koop and the Blank- “Completely”

And now for a bit of visual stimulation: this experimental four-piece band out of Vancouver have recently released a new video for the track “Completely.” The man behind the camera is none other than Lee Hutzulak, the guy behind Dixie’s Death Pool. The visuals of a woman and some animals by the sea, sometimes intentionally blurred, perfectly fit the song’s gloomy tone. “Completely” and two other songs are going to be released via Bandcamp on June 26, 2013.
