Formed in the U.S. but now Toronto-based, Ginla is a duo comprising Joe Manzoli and Jon Nellen. Their debut EP, Dreaming In Circles is already generating love in the U.S. and U.K. blogosphere. We're not surprised by that, for these tracks are a convincing fusion of the accessible and the adventurous, as showcased on "Things You Have". Skittering beats are placed below moody soundscapes, to appealing effect. A very limited cassette edition came out (cool!), but we're guessing all 50 copies have been snapped up.
Ginla play T.O.'s legendary Wavelength festival on Feb. 14 at Polish Combatants Hall.
