New video from Dundas trio The Tallest Tree. A DIY effort, which is fitting given their lo fi, garage pop sound.

[LISTEN] YOUNG DOCTORS IN LOVE – WORLD’S GREATEST ROCK AND ROLL BAND (LP)

‘World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band’ is a misnomer on at least two levels, but no matter. It is the title of the full-length debut by Toronto popsters Young Doctors in Love. This is polished, bouncy, new wave-inspired pop. All of the songs are solid and well-crafted, and feature some nice bridges and interludes. The band is named after a goofy ’80′s movie, supposedly as a reminder to keep it fun. As if anyone needed reminding. I thought it was more to convince everyone that it was 1982 and bands like the Go Go’s still ruled the airwaves.

liinks 2

The BC electronic duo of Georgia Murray (vocals) and DJ DWhiz (production) go by the name of LIINKS. Their first single “The Break” has pop sensibilities, but there is still enough of a dark, trip hop edge to keep indie fans happy.

magnetic

The ever-mysterious electronic artist Magnetic (a.k.a. Mark Weiler) brings in Shane Sparks on vocals (and other bits and bobs) for a more new wave/art rock approach. Great stuff for fans of early Eno or 80′s art rock like Japan.

Elephant Stone integrate Buddhism in their latest track “Child of Nature (Om Namah Shivaya)” from their upcoming album Three Poisons. There’s a sort of holy feel to the whole song, like it’s speaking to a higher power.

[Watch] River Tiber- Prophets

No Comments 16 July 2014

To compliment their sprawling tune “Prophets”, River Tiber filmed a rather chillout video featuring their name on neon signs, jelly fish and empty parking lots. Glitchier things are added as the song gets more intense. We end up with a slow motion sparkler of sorts.

Finally we get a new Prince Innocence track! Loving the juxtaposition of slow vocals with the speedy synths. An album is apparently taking fruition.

mindil 2

Mindil Beach Markets recently shortened their bench (losing founding member, Daniel Kingsbury) and shortened their name (now it’s simply Mindil Beach). How does all that affect their sound? You be the judge. Check out their latest, a rollicking, fun number called “Love Like Mine”.

[Watch] Bahamas- Stronger Than That

Juno-nominated Bahamas has announced the release of his upcoming album Bahamas is Alfie for August 19th, 2014. The title gives hint that the album will be the most personal yet from the singer/songwriter. Watch the video for the smooth new tune “Stronger Than That”, which takes the topic quite literally with a strongman.

We haven’t heard from Sloan for a while but the band just announced the September 9th release of a double LP titled Commonwealth. Stream “Keep Swinging (Downtown)” above which sounds so distinctively Sloan.
