Idious Carrie Celebrates 1 Year of 'O' With Special Performance
Well I never, if it isn't one year since Idious Carrie released the beautiful 'O'! I'm sure you'll join us in the celebration by searching for and following Idious Carrie on your preferred music platform, and giving the singles a spin!
The beautiful and heartfelt tracks, '9 Lives' and 'The World as a Loose Garment' are ageing like a fine wine. How time flies when you look back at music from this Toronto powerhouse of a scene.
Idious will be performing a very intimate house show tonight, Thursday June 23rd. If you want to come, drop us a DM on Instagram and we'll reveal the details.

Bill Cutbill AMAZONAS LPs Ready To Ship
We'd just like to take a moment to thank everyone who made it out to the AMAZONAS LP release party at The Cameron House last week. Wow. It was a really special night of celebration, made possible by all the people involved including those who attended.
Our very own Provincial Parcs brought the stage to life with his incredible analogue visuals. If you've not checked it out already, listen to his debut jazz album, Scenic Equilibrium which we released last year!
Shout out to Idious Carrie, whose beautiful haunting melodies spun us right round. You can check out the most recent single here. Kiss Kali Die Die's solo performance also sent shockwaves through the atmosphere - how incredible to see such incredible performers lay it all on the line in such an intimate space.
Finally, Bill Cutbill and the Schmoozy Lighters brought the Amazon rainforest to Toronto for an hour or so, and from the feedback we've had people came away feeling something profound ~ "rise, shine, look around!"
And with that, AMAZONAS is now available on vinyl. Thanks to everyone who grabbed a record. If you didn't no fret, you can order it direct with us by messaging on Instagram @safesoundscollective for free delivery in Toronto or via bandcamp for international and Canada-wide postage. We also have a limited number of copies shipping from the UK (£20 all in), so again, get in touch with us or Bill directly to secure your copy.
This is the first ever commercial vinyl release on Safe Sounds! Don't worry, it just marks the beginning and we've got some very exciting release announcements to make in the next few weeks.

Idious Carrie's 9 Lives In Technicolor
9 Lives is an energetic missile of a track, taken from Idious Carrie's debut double-a release "O". This heavy rock ballad marks the start of Carrie's solo journey, who is well known in the Toronto music scene as a leading voice in psychedelic rock powerhouse Kali Horse.
The music video for 9 Lives is a work of art by The Oscillitarium and stars Idious amid a mass of colours that fizz and whirl in every direction. The lush organic tones of the music have been paired perfectly courtesy of the movie magic of Sarah Bassakyros, Sophia Bassakyros and Tobin Hopwood. The set was designed with help from Unfazed Floral's incredible flower arrangements.
Check out the video above or head over to Ultra Tube now! We love it and we're sure you will too.
