Clarian’s Smile-Inducing Playlist

On February 23, Montreal electro artist Clarian (ex-Footprintz) releases his debut album, Television Days (via Balance Music), a neon-lit, synth-smeared concept album about a failed screenwriter trying to survive in Hollywood. For his Dowsers playlist, he’s put together a mix of primitive electronica, post-punk, romantic goth, and outsider pop he describes simply as “music so that when she smiles, the fear flies away in little pieces of light.”
