Does living in one of the coldest places on the planet make you more or less chill? Winnipeg band, Living Hour, is staking its claim to be just that with its third LP Someday is Today. Composed of 11 songs, the album finds the band at its most pensive and longing, with its vulnerable lyrics brought to life through lush instrumentation and rudimentary electronica. According to the band’s label, Kanine Records, the project was recorded over a week in their hometown. Despite the speedy recording process, the whole feels cohesive, filled with a cool languour and gorgeous harmonies. Think of a combination of Yo La Tengo and Beach House and you get the idea. Living Hour has redefined chill and this album is a perfect way to ease back into work after a very, very hot summer.
