Woot! New Mounties (i.e. Hawksley Workman, Steve Bays and Ryan Dahle). “Canoe Song” finds them in playful, funky form and the stop-motion video is killer.
Ben Shemie (SUUNS) presents his first full-length solo work. “I Know You Feel the Same” has captivating melody but still has a cold, paranoid view of the future. Fascinating.
From their latest album (‘RLV’) this is Winnipeg’s Rock Lake with some of their infectious, scuzzy but melodic punk pop.
“Iƒ•yuºwant˚it•” finds Cass43VR having fun with beats, but still the restless adventurous soul in them makes it intriguing.
“Kids” is the lead-off single from PUP’s latest album ‘Morbid Stuff’ (Apr. 5th). As much as the Toronto crew may have a morbid sense of humour, the album sounds like it will be far from mobid stuff. Lively, irresistible punk-pop more like it.
“Lamb Ringer” is brash and captivating, combining urban cool and hard-edged electric excitement.
From ‘Supernatural Mystics’.
Saxsyndrum have experimental/groove leanings, using jazz as an underpinning. “Jenni” captures them heading into Radiohead territory, along with a ’90s underground visual tone.
