Art-rock and funk join hands in a marriage of stutter and groove, officiated by Pastel Blank. Formed in 2019, the Victoria-based project is led by main songwriter Angus Watt. Pulling influence from the jerky rhythms and genre-blending curiosity of Talking Heads as well as the interlocking guitar-work of Canadian post-punk luminaries Women, the music of Pastel Blank cloaks experimentation in pop-minded song structure. Skeletal, wobbly guitars squeeze around the propulsive engine of thumping bass and drums, driving the beat forward as Watt’s percussive voice weaves a stream of cryptics into tongue-in-cheek wordplay reminiscent of Stephen Malkmus or Dan Bejar.

Babe Corner is a rock band from Vancouver BC. Catchy guitar riffs, dreamy synths, and soothing melodic lead vocals that are backed up with 4 part harmony give Babe Corner a nostalgic rock vibe. Babe Corner is gearing up for Spring with an EP recorded and in the works. To assume it’s genre, you could call it “Babe Core” – however, nobody puts baby in a corner.
