This week's newmusicmonday is Tasseomancy, who were Ghost Bees until last year. The Haligonian duo has dark, gothic pop and "Healthy Hands" {MP3 link above} borders on neopsychelia. Here are two clips from their days as Ghost Bees, which is a good intro to their sound::

There's something dark and precious about their music, full of introspection, strange lyrics, and vocal and sonic experimentation. Here's a live performance of "Anubis", recorded at Tranzac in Toronto last autumn::
