OK, well Thursday continues to be pretty mellow with OK Vancouver OK. The lo-fi “Building A Way” is more than a little quirky, though.

Lo-fi indie rockers Blackpaw Society released Lessons in Leisure Vol.2. The tunes have a welcoming familiar warmth but yet there are eerie atmospheric tones throughout, a reflection of the turbulent times in which this album was written.

Vancouver indie-popsters Rococode are back with a new song called “Banks”. Sounds like they’ve veered away from their straight-up indie-rock tunes into synth-pop.

Mitchmatic is from Edmonton, but this isn’t that weird really. Kinda quirky maybe, but basically just some cool hip-hop.

Edmonton, again. Yes, it’s a weird town, and here’s something else to prove it. Or maybe you’d call “Creatures of Habit” just another dystopian goth punk sing-along?

meat force

This one definitely qualifies for Weird Tuesday. “Pagan Love Song” by Edmonton’s Meat Force is a slice of experimental chillwave (close enough). It’s from the album…er, no, I’m not even saying that..
