    CoSigned punks from Toronto Greys released their excellent sophomore album, Outer Heaven, earlier this year. Today, they return with a surprise companion LP to that effort dubbed Warm Shadow from Buzz/Carpark.

    Warm Shadow acts as the introspective side of the more macro topics discussed on Outer Heaven. Where as the previous record was filled with driving, comparatively straightforward noise, its companion deals more in meandering drones and abstract lyricism. “Have you watched Stranger Things? This album is the upside-down to Outer Heaven,” frontman Shehzaad Jiwani explained to Stereogum.

    The album is available as a pay-what-you-want download via Bandcamp. Through October 12th, all proceeds from sales will be donated to Sistering, a trans-inclusive non-profit that supports “women from across Toronto who experience first hand the impact of marginalization and poverty.”
