Graham Van Pelt just dropped a new EP — listen here

The Toronto musician and former Montrealer released Sense Appeal on Arbutus and No Bad Days.

Toronto-based musician Graham Van Pelt just dropped a new EP called Sense Appeal. Montreal’s Arbutus Records is co-releasing the EP with London-based label No Bad Days.

A press release describes the title track as “Larry Heard-redolent deep house with the uncanny tenderness of Arthur Russell’s voice floating atop.” There are also three remixes:

“Yu Su applies her celebrated touch with a punchy club cut, while Gene Tellem goes full ‘00s with a big room pumper. Von Dutch caps and blue diamante sunnies sadly not included. Closing us out we have twin mix engineers Mark and Matt Thibideau providing a dubbed-out version of the title track, bringing it all full circle.”

This is the first release for Graham Van Pelt — a former Montrealer also known for his project Miracle Fortress and as a member of Think About Life — since his 2018 LP Time Travel.
