Editors’ Notes

This Toronto/Montreal–based three-piece, featuring siblings Allie, Jaclyn, and Trevor Blumas, make an electronic-music universe that’s thoroughly sympathetic to its origins in centuries-old meditation and trance music. Despite the "electronic" tag, there's a beautiful naturalism to the trio's approach, and no fear of adding guitar, flute, or handmade percussion. Synths dominate the sound, but the deliberately obscured vocals—which become louder in their ominous desires—and the insistent percussion turns “Head Spirit—For Our Mechanical Time” into a tune of its own destiny.

The wordless vocals of “Waka Waka” explore a mysticism made by their own hands, pushing from stillness to a dance floor packed with folks enjoying their intentional nonsense. This debut album is one psychic landscape after another, where it’s never certain how much is silliness masquerading as deep thought. Yet with an album title like Kalaboogie, this trio is surely self-aware.
