the downers 2222

A lo fi effort from BC punk outfit The Downers. Amazing what 3 guys, 2 mikes and a living room can produce. These guys list “alcohol depression” as one of the genres they play!

the written years

The cut “The Station” is from Vancouver band The Written Years self-titled album. The delicate, mournful ballad shows off the band’s folksier side.

ABM

Altered BY Mom is the latest musical project by veteran Devon Lougheed (beekeeper, Hey Ocean!). This time out it’s more straight-forward power pop, but there is still a quirky edge.

High Ends is a solo project by Yukon Blonde’s Jeffrey Innes. “Intoxicated” would be a folk rock stomp, but it’s done with electronics. A fun, chorus-driven sing-along, if somewhat undemanding.

SlightBirching-HighRes

An off-beat neo-folk number from Slight Birching (a.k.a. Sean Travis Ramsay). This dreamy, haunting single is released ahead of his debut album ‘Cultural Envelope’ (coming August).

New Billy Ghost

The new 6-track EP from the mysterious Billy Ghost is a follow-up to his fantastic self-titled LP released earlier this year. The songs here range from dreamy (“Pacific Ocean Blues”) to Beatlesque (“What a Disaster!”) but they are all works of well-crafted pop.

Cecil Frena aka Born Gold is releasing a video series called No Sorrow featuring some new stuff. “I Want to be Naked” is a glitchy upbeat tune that will have a video very soon.

The Weeknd dropped a new track called “King of the Fall”. Not sure why Sky Ferreira is on the cover though. Perhaps it is her Abel Tesfaye is singing about.

Shad & DJ T.Lo will be dropping an EP this fall. Check out “All This Winnin” which features Shad’s oh-so relatable lyrics and some smooth sax licks with classic hip hop beat.

Evan Bourque’s brand of country/folk rock is lively and infectious. He was the Zone 91.3 (Victoria) “Band of the Month” for March, 2014 and rightly so.
