Winnipeg's Living Hour play stretched-out dream pop, washed in thick reverb and weighted with a hint of nostalgia. Airy vocal melodies sail over gazey guitar and shadowy synth pads, creating a shimmery warmth. Living Hour sink into a deep, immersive space on their 2016 self-titled release. The hooky opening guitar line in "Seagull" latches right onto the summery trends of current dream pop, but slowly builds into a heavily saturated texture that seems to widen in density as much as it progresses through time. Madison's one-man shredder and stomper, Mad Max Elliot plays freaked-out rockabilly here, sharing the bill with spacey Madison-based singer-songwriter Meggie Shays. —Emili Earhart
