Automelodi – FriedrichshainMelodi Mixkassette

I’ve been out of the country and not listening to much music for the past few weeks, but I’m back and catching up by combing the internet for new music. Tonight I’m really enjoying this mixtape by Xavier Paradis of Automelodi, so I thought I’d share it – perfect mix of italo disco/minimal synth tunes to listen to during a rainy evening. The mix has some songs from great Canadian projects (Essaie Pas, Violence, Xarah Dion) and a bunch of artists that are new to me and sound terrific!

Cinéma Vengeance

One last quick post before heading out of the country for a few weeks. Cinéma Vengeance is a minimal-synth band that I can’t dig up much info about, but my friends in Montréal tell me that Xavier Paradis of Automelodi was drumming live with them last month and they said it was a fantastic live show! Apparently Xavier indicated that this project will have a more industrial feel than Automelodi. So I’m guessing it’s a Canadian project, looks like it’s been active for about a year and a half, and it’s fun. (Edit: The other band members are Nick Coldhands from Effet Werther and Fred from Police des moeurs) That’s all I got…check out their demos here.
