Morning Music Notes – Bye Bye Bye Riddler
We had the pleasure of watching Still Corners open for CHVRCHES back in June in Toronto. The London synth pop group have a new track called Fireflies, which follows up Berlin Lovers.
Fireflies is a slow, dreamy synthpop track – just like the insect! Okay, nothing like the insect. Check out Fireflies, and check out their album, Strange Pleasure, out now.

I’m doing my best to avoid seeing what the Nine Inch Nails stage set up looks like before I actually see them. When the band puts out documentaries on their tour, this makes it tougher. Check out 13 minutes of the band discussing the tour.
A study finds that people like tend to prefer home-grown music. Maybe it’s because it’s forced down our throats by content laws? Just kidding – I love you, Canadian music (except Nickelback, Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, …) (via Guardian)
