Stream: Springtime Carnivore's 'Midnight Room'

Springtime Carnivore’s sophomore album Midnight Room is coming out this Friday (Oct. 7) on Autumn Tone Records. The first single ‘Face in the Moon’ was released earlier this summer and the title track dropped just a few weeks ago. The album has the same exuberant pop style of their eponymous debut, but the songs delve a little further into dream-pop this time around. It makes sense since most of Midnight Room was written in the fuzzy stages between sleep and waking, often in the middle of the night. According to a press release, Morgan began working on songs for the album after a shattering break-up and a “jagged sleep schedule." She often felt like she was “space cadeting through the weird space between sleeping and dreaming and waking and reality”. The dreamier vibe on Midnight Room could also have something to do with bringing on producer Chris Coady, who worked with dream-pop darlings Beach House on their last four albums. This one is definitely worth a listen and you can stream it right now or preorder the album from their website.

       Morgan also recently collaborated with La Sera’s Katy Goodman on an album of punk covers called Take It, It’s Yours. If you missed it, the album came out on August 26th and they take on classics from The Replacements, Bad Brains and Blondie. My personal favourite is an amazing cover of The Stooges ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ which they have turned into a haunting and beautiful pop song. Springtime Carnivore are currently on tour with La Sera and will hit Toronto later this month for a show at The Silver Dollar Room on October 28th. I caught them during their first ever Toronto show in March of 2015 when they opened for The Dodos at the Horseshoe Tavern. Check out a video of Morgan performing a solo number during the set below. Tickets are available at Rotate This, Soundscapes and Ticketfly. You do not want to miss this one!
