Paul Manchin: Lift

The prolific pop singer/songwriter previews a new album with this impressive electro-pop cut. His softly melodic vocals are placed atop repetitive keyboard figures, and the '80s-flavoured tune is gently insinuating.

Paul Manchin: Lift

By Kerry Doole

Paul Manchin - "Lift" (Independent): This prolific pop singer/songwriter has released seven previous albums digitally, and he has received airplay on MTV, Bravo!, Sirius/XM and Galaxie. Manchin's 2017 album, Salutations, included the radio singles “Spin," “King” and “One."


His next album, Swim, comes out next week, preceded by this impressive single. Co-written and co-produced by Manchin and Black Jack, it is a tasty electro-pop confection. Manchin's softly melodic vocals are placed atop repetitive keyboard figures, and the tune is gently insinuating. There's a definite '80s vibe to his sound.

Swim was recorded in Toronto and New York, mastered by Chris Crerar (Metalworks) and produced with Moe Berg (The Pursuit of Happiness) and Fergus Hambleton (The Sattalites). Manchin has previously worked with such notables as Matt Forger (Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson) and Chin Injeti (Eminem).

New & Upcoming Canadian Album Releases: deadmau5 Returns with New EP, Hollerado's Menno Versteeg Goes Solo

Boy Golden and Begonia also have new releases this week, while Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson are reissuing their solo albums.

A mid-summer release week brings some notable new releases from Canadian artists, including Oleyada andRuss Brannon. Hot off the exclusive cover story in the new Rolling Stone Quebec, deadmau5 is also back with a new release, some ep, that combines his first solo music in two years with his alter-ego Testpilot.

For Eden, meanwhile, is the second full-length from indie folk/roots songsmith Boy Golden (Liam Duncan). His debut LP, Church of Better Days, hit #1 at Canadian Alternative radio, and he has quickly become a favourite on the touring circuit. Already a Juno winner, Winnipegger Begonia turns heads with her force of nature voice, and new album Open Swim will spread the word.
