This may be a couple months late, but I’ve recently got into the Toronto psychedelic band Heartbeat Hotel. They used to be a Peterborough-based band named Mariposa, but I’m glad they’re here for us now.
In March, they released their album Fetus Dreams along with a 7″. Fetus Dreams is 10 tracks long of trippy pop-rock, but it’s really pleasant and soothing rather than the party kind of that genre. I’m really into the song “The Hello Barrell,” the melodies are so nice and water-like.
Heartbeat Hotel play a lot around the city. I always get invites to see them play Snakes + Ladders shows, but I can never make it. Hopefully one day soon I will. In fact, they play June 3 at the Piston with Boys Who Say No and more.
Download Fetus Dreams off their BandCamp. There’s other albums available for download as well.
