Super funny Toronto based duo Phedre kindly made us a wonderful glitchy disillusioned party-driven mixtape and answered a few precise questions. Daniel Lee and April Aliermo are really the guys you were looking for and we are glad Toronto is a source of such a good musical project. We were impressed by their first record, Phèdre, …
