SONG OF THE WEEK: Silkken Laumann, “On The Mend”

I know what you’re thinking — but no, it’s not the Olympic medalist we’re talking about here. Rather, Silkken Laumann is the electro-pop alter-ego outfit of Rolf Klausener and Pat Johnson of The Acorn and Adam Saikaley (of CBC Radio and independent endeavours). They released this single just yesterday, with a music video to boot, and the song can be all yours for a minimum donation of a dollar — the trio is donating proceeds to Ottawa’s Royal Mental Health Centre. So not only will the track make you feel good as you’re strolling down sleet-y February streets, but you’ll feel great knowing you’re supporting something important in the national capital community.

Silkken Laumann – On The Mend

Listen if you: enjoy any other electro-dance sounds coming out of Ottawa right now, a la Fevers and The Glass Chain; want some smooth synth beats you can digest during the day; have always wanted to dance to Rolf Klausener’s vocals but normally preferred listening to The Acorn while sitting down.

And hey, Ottawa: lucky for you, you can catch these guys at Ritual next Wednesday as they open for YACHT. Hit up Show Listings for more details.
