This electronic/hip hop track is Montreal on top of Montreal; Zachary Gray, who moved to Montreal in July 2010, remixes Montreal lifers Boots and Scoops. Gray has 1 solo LP behind him (titled Montreal I/II) in addition to making up one half of lo-fi indie pop act Cinéma Vérité. Look for shows in Montreal sometime in late June (no details yet).

Devaney - Gem Piece ARTWORK


R&B has never sounded so smooth. Toronto-based Devaney has crafted a stellar 9 track EP Gem Piece. The songs on the debut are “refreshing and charismatic” with addictive riffs and soothing vocal stylings. Give it a listen and you will wonder how can a 19 year old sound so refined! She is a gem alright!

It’s been a few years since we last posted about Tiny Danza but last month they dropped a new tune on Soundcloud called “Weapon”. They’re back with their melodramatic and funny lyrics.

I was sent this EP by a guy named Chris, also known as Vancouver chillwave producer Concord Drumm. The EP was written and recorded in various hotels across the US and Canada, hence the name. His style mixes in reverbed vocals, synths and some occasional hip-hop.
