Public Publication EP 

Rich Aucoin (Sonic)

Rich Aucoin aims to destroy dance music’s greatest irony: that its communal audience experience is built on songs often recorded in isolation by studio auteurs. In contrast, over 500 musicians from across Canada contributed to this EP—a companion piece to his forthcoming full-length—and you can hear their weight behind every electro beat and singalong. The collectivist vibe keeps the songs inspired as Aucoin dances closely in-step with his influences. But even skeptics of his genre-raiding will have their cynicism annihilated by “Undead,” the EP’s closing track and undeniable highlight. It’s a gloriously transcendent piece of pop music, an inspiring and tantalizing tease for the future gems that Aucoin likely has in store for us.
