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.’”

Idious Carrie's Road to 'O'
Idious Carrie has joined the media merry-go-round ahead of the release of her debut double A single, 'O', which arrives worldwide tomorrow!
Havin' a Chat is a podcast by Alex Spears; a lovely chap who held a really beautiful conversation with Idious, giving a unique insight into the inspiration behind the two tracks that make up the release (9 Lives and The World as a Loose Garment).
We've embedded the podcast episode for your listening pleasure, so get your ears around that but... if that leaves you with a thirst for more... don't worry that soft little head of yours because more is on the way!
ULTRA (your favourite local scene zine) will be premiering 9 Lives on their brand spanking new radio show which aires from 6pm tonight (Friday 11th June) via trueconnection.fm. You can also read a fantastic article on Idious Carrie's release in the latest issue of ULTRA Mag. Thanks to Marko Cindric for his articulate words about the release.
Well there you go! Don't sleep on it - grab yourself a cup of tea and immerse yourself in the Tkaronto arts scene.

Kaleidoscope Horse Lounge Live Session
Kaleidoscope Horse — the androgynous psychedelic art-rock band from Toronto, Canada — filmed a live session in the Safe Sounds lounge. First aired as part of Markham Music Festival 2020, it is now available to watch in full via our YouTube channel.
Idious Carrie (vocals, electric guitar, upright piano) and Janis Dolphin (vocals, electric guitar) performed new tracks Long Fever and Velvet, also delving into the world of the unknown with a beautiful but spooky improvised jam.
