Last month, the Canadian outfit Buildings and Food released their debut album Quick Beat Save through Number F Records.
Hailing from Toronto, this is the artistic/musical persona of Jen K. Wilson, an independent music artist espousing electronic avant/indie pop in the veins similar to Stereolab and Ladytron. The album consists of eight pretty beautiful and musically clever songs that aim directly at the hearts of true indie pop fans.
All songs were written, recorded and produced by Wilson–she made all the drum programming, built all the loops, and played all percussion, keys, guitars and did the vocal work too. Wilson used to play guitar and drums in various indie bands before embarking on a career as a visual artist, and 2018 was the right time for her to gather up all her musings, arrange them into complete songs and release her debut LP.
A jazzy and indie-infused pop musician with a talent for creating catchy riffs and catchy melodies, Wilson plays urban pop music that’s candid, thoughtful and wisely observed.
“Slow To Reverse” is the leading track from the Buildings and Food record–enjoy!
