Purity Ring, an electronic duo from The Great White North, just released their first full length album last week on limited edition teal vinyl. And let me tell you, the album is having sex with my ears right now as I type this. And what hot steamy sex it is. I am pretty sure this album will be the sole reason Canada wont have snow this winter. Also… where did my pants go?
If you don’t know who these two are. You should. Give the album a listen below and then hit this buy button. (it’s on sexy teal!)
Price – $14
*Note: The first 200 sold come with a Polaroid from the band. Not sure if there are any left, but it’ll be a nice surprise if there are!
From the Label:
Purity Ring make lullabies for the club, drawing equally from airy 90s R&B, lush dream pop, and the powerful, bone-rattling immediacy of modern hip hop. Meganâ€™s remarkable voice is at once ecstatic and ethereal, soaring joyfully through Corinâ€™s carefully chopped beats, trembling synths, and skewed vocal samples.
Despite the bandâ€™s young age (Corin is 21, Megan 24) and short gestation (they formed in late 2010), Purity Ring have delivered one of 2012’s most assured â€“ and anticipated â€“ debuts withÂ Shrines. Indeed,Â ShrinesÂ feels like anything but a first record – its vocal hooks are inescapable, its lush production futuristic and sophisticated but also as pristine as anything on pop radio. The record’s eleven tracks trace a unique aesthetic universe that is carefully crafted and fully realized – deftly walking the lines between trap-rap exhilaration and otherworldly rapture, pleasure-center pop and diaristic emotion, childlike dread and total self-possession. Purity Ring’s is a universe that invites exploration and demands revisiting.
