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.

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.

deep sea gypsies
Good god, y’all! Just take a listen to the Deep Sea Gypsies’ blend of rock, blues, psychedelia, with some hip-hop thrown in for good measure. Keeps the spirit of the late ’60′s alive, but it’s fresh and contemporary at the same time.

Love the smooth styles of The Weeknd? Belle, is like the female version. The singer from Toronto released Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which aims to tell her story about being sexually abused and the vices she put herself through afterwards. This album could be the anthem of the recently trending #YesAllWomen hashtag on twitter.

[Listen] Dead Horse Beats- Single People

No Comments 23 April 2014

by Tiana Feng
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.
