RUM DO's Single Lighter Will Put Your Mind At Ease
RUM DO Spotify Playlist


There's a brand new single out today — Lighter — which is taken from RUM DO's upcoming EP, You Just Have To Be [SS118].

The first single No Worries which was released in December, represents some of RUM DO's most upbeat sounds to date; funky bass, warm textures and calming vocals.

Well they've very much carried on in this vein with the release of Lighter, which is an airy upbeat classical guitar track with washing ambience, soft synths and an organic rhythm.

Speaking of Lighter, Bill Cutbill of RUM DO said —

"This was written and recorded during the stay-at-home order. I was very much trying to use music and the recording process to channel some inner peace and tranquility at that time.

"To me, No Worries and Lighter will forever be linked by that conscious effort to meditate on a feeling of lightness and joy.

"Being stuck at home was both stressful but also in some ways calming. I hope that people listening to the single will absorb some of those feelings that I was able to conjure while recording it at home.

True to RUM DO's style, Lighter has a lot of hidden texture. What's slightly different in the case of this single, is the lack of digital percussion, the use of open space, and the light use of vocals.

Electronic Pop Returns with RUM DO's No Worries


We are delighted to share RUM DO's new single No Worries with the world.

You won't want to miss this funky track, which features Harry Perry's most infectious bass-line ever, brought about from a first time collaboration with epic drummer Bradley Thibodeau (of Possum and Ready The Prince).

No Worries is the debut single from RUM DO's third EP You Just Have To Be [SS118], which will be trickling to you track by track until its full release in April 2023.

Talking about the origins of the single, Bill Cutbill of RUM DO said —

"When writing the lyrics for No Worries I was very consciously trying to channel something which threw away my normal melancholy outlook and focused more on the positives.

"During the pandemic, I was searching for an inner sense of peace by meditating musically on the thought of it; what that might feel like and sound like. These were the bones on which the track was built.

"It was fantastic to work with Brad because he added an infectious shuffle that immediately gave it more purpose rhythmically. I really hope listening to No Worries also fires off some serotonin in your brain because for me it really does emit a feeling of warmth, peace and relaxation!"

Your Grandad Is Here To Slay!

Today is the momentous day that local heroes Your Grandad celebrate their debut Safe Sounds release.

The Double-A single 'Juice Opinion / Fake News' (SS113) is a hard-hitting two track wonder featuring the angular guitars of William O'Neill, the unfathomable drumming of Max Scheffel and the funky bass of Cameron Kirk. On top of that, there's some good old fashioned singing to top it all off.

We're sure you'll agree that the sound of this Toronto post-punk trio just gets more refined as time passes. These two tracks were recorded by Stephen Pitman and mastered by Brent O'Toole, with album art by Jaymie Flis.

Go throw em a bone by downloading the tracks via their Bandcamp. You can also pre-order a limited edition cassette of this release too... it's an investment sure to double, triple or quadruple in value as the band shoot to international stardom... not that you'll ever consider selling it... some things are priceless; drowning in memories and wrapped up with tangible feelings of a bygone age. Yes, even as a grandad yourself, we guarantee you'll be sitting in a chair clutching that cassette, tears dripping down your chit onto your walking stick.

Speaking of old times, have you seen Your Grandad's epic bank vault sessions from back in 2020? If not you should go and check those out after listening to the new stuff, because you get to see them in all of their black-and-white glory!

Idious Carrie 'O' is Everywhere now!

Idious Carrie's O (SS112) is now available to stream everywhere!

"O, as the letter implies, is a container of... multitudes, a lens to peer through — but it’s also a bending of time, the future reaching back to commune with the past, recognizing itself within itself. Through it, Idious Carrie retrieves the resilient, unbroken thread holding together her life despite the chaos: ‘Into the rest of time / You’ll find me alright.’”

Go give it a listen on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, or alternatively search for Idious Carrie on your preferred platform.
