deadhorsebeats
Toronto producer Patrick Wade aka Dead Horse Beats has a new album out called Single People. The album features trip-hop vocals from Jess Abran. Unlike his old albums which featured guests from all over the internet, this feels more cohesive. This is essentially a breakup album. One where the main character goes through all the emotions including resentment and a new found freedom.

Alexandra Stewart is probably one of my favourite new artist discoveries of the year. She dropped another tune this week on Bandcamp called “I Grow”. It’s a well-restrained beauty.

Vancouver’s You Say Party celebrated 10 years with an EP of rare tracks titled Decennium. The work includes demo versions of old songs and remixes. After a hiatus, the band has mentioned they are in studio recording new material but we’re not sure when those will see the light of day.

Release Date: April 1st, 2014
Label: Captured Tracks

It was 3 or 4 years ago that I saw Mac DeMarco’s old band Makeout Videotape play on a rooftop full of hipsters. I remembered his slacker clothes and “I don’t give a fuck” demeanor. He would mumble fast gibberish before taking off into the next song. As much as I didn’t want to, I liked his music. A year later, I would see him at CMW as Mac DeMarco. He wore the same attire, same nonchalantness with even more confidence to jump around and act silly on stage. 2012′s 2  was one of my favourite albums of the year and now Salad Days is a contender of this year.

Montreal singer-songwriter Isabelle Young has a voice that is effortless in her single “Sirens”, the title track of her EP coming in summer. I love the piano sparkles, provided by Felix Leblanc.

[Watch] Zerbin- Lift

Hailing from Edmonton, Zerbin is a pop-rock group. Their song for “Lift” sounds like it has a spiritual/religious undertone which I thought would be rather fitting for Easter Sunday.

jomcomyn
Edmonton’s Jom Comyn aka Jim Cuming recently released an album titled In the Dark on 99 (All the Time, All the Time). He worked with producer Eric Cheung (Coeur de Pirate, Michael Rault) to create dense layers in his recordings. The album, probably written during a long winter evokes the slow passage of time, the moments that eventually become a blur.
