Why do we like this?
Take a dash of Phil Elverum, a splash of Daniel Johnston, and maybe a hint of Broken Social Scene, and you cook up singer-songwriter Daniel Gélinas, the man behind lo-fi pop rock project YouYourself&i.

With his repetitive guitar strumming and soft whispers that almost sound like pillow chatter to ex-lovers, his work will hit you like yesterday's longing. This featured song, PLASTICITY, is indicative of a 'wealth of talent' wrapped up in that Montreal indie goodness. As Zach Hart* over at We Listen for You explained,

"I'm guilty of great hyperbole, but I promise, no matter what type of music listener you are, if you give this collection your honest attention and time, a great reward awaits."


Definitely agreed with that sentiment: this is music that sweetens with repeat listens. Just spend some time with his full 2011 release, Book of Questions. It's spine-tingling. Right now, I'm all about the track Escalator, a vocal pairing with singer Veronica Charnley. Amazing.

You can listen to the TREACLE WELL, his recent two-part album where this featured track sits, on Bandcamp. Only four tracks from each section of that album are available for listening, but it's enough to see what you've been missing.

*Hat tip to We Listen for You for the great post/share.
