Kali Horse Wavelength Winter Festival Live Stream
Your favourite androgynous duo, Kali Horse, is performing as part of Wavelength Winter Festival this Friday at 8pm EST.
The show will represent their first performance of the year! The multi-camera extravaganza was filmed live from the Safe Sounds bank vault with sound and editing by our very own Bill Cutbill.
If you want to learn more about Kali Horse, formerly known as Kaleidoscope Horse, Wavelength have published a great interview with the group —
“Our first album, Slow Slow is all about being in a dream state, and this next album is, you’re very much awake and very conscious of the choices you make and the guilt you carry,” Maloney says. “‘Anima’ is the wake-up call to go into that.”
Oh and if you can't wait, why not take a look back at our last session with Kaleidoscope Horse from the Safe Sounds lounge here.

Descenending Video & Remix Single Released
The 6-track single features four remixes from Paulo Sinski, Know Itself, rryrry and Sages, along with a live version recorded at World News' last live show before lockdown in Toronto.
Speaking of the track, Bill explained -
“Descenending is about helping a friend through a tough spot when you’re struggling to remain stable yourself. Touching on themes of community and mental health, it feels more relevant than ever today. Remember to cut yourself some slack and help others where you can – stay calm out there and try to enjoy your daze.”

Calm Down Just a Little Bit
Welcome to 2021! We're starting this year with a bang — a bang for your buck. Yes, that's right, our very own electronic duo World News will be releasing a single package for Descenending on Jan 22nd.
"A package?!", I hear you exclaim?
Exactly, and this package includes a music video from visionary cinematographer Brennan Martin, four incredible remixes from Know Itself (Berlin), Paulo Sinski (Toronto), rryrry (Sweden) and Sages (Hamilton), and, finally, a live version of the track recorded with a single but incredibly technical microphonic device left on a bar at the back of the room of World News' most recent performance in Toronto.
Yes! You yourself will be able to take an auditory seat in an audience hall once more, and remember what it is like to drink and be merry.
So set your watches for this Friday 22nd Jan 2021. It's going to be a day, much like many other days, but with an additional Safe Sounds package for your listening pleasure.
Calm down just a little bit. Try not to drink on your own. Do what makes you happy and be kind to others.
