Listen to Lampshade on CBC

Lampshade (Paul Shrofel) is the latest addition to the VR roster. Trained as a jazz pianist, Lampshade's production is rich and musical. Modern Behavior is a down tempo mixture of sample-laden melodies, catchy keyboards, and nu-jazz grooves. Primarily an instrumental album, Modern Behavior features some soulful vocal tracks from sources who will be left unnamed!
