RIYL: DIIV, Craft Spells, Deerhunter

Label: Hand Drawn Dracula

Toronto indie rock trio MIMICO brandish a dreamy, synth-driven style of psychedelia that doesn’t quite fit into any pigeonhole in the genre. Their 2015 full-length Incantations is an insanely underrated endeavor, successfully coalescing brooding organ-led goth and melancholic post rock into something strikingly unique and refreshing. The single off their newest LP called Hi-Action is throwing new and exciting styles into their already eclectic palette. Titled New Haze, there’s a substantial dream pop influence in the cavernous mix for the guitars and drums, but halfway through, the song changes course and opts for an eerier tone. A ghostly synth pulse takes the reigns and cascades into a gorgeous cacophony of shoegazey feedback and noise. Holy hell, it’s f-ing great. Check it out below!

Toronto label Hand Drawn Dracula only has 300 copies of the record on red vinyl. Keep in mind that these will be shipping from Canada, but the total price will still only be around $28. Not bad at all for an international order!
