Montreal singer-songwriter Isabelle Young has a voice that is effortless in her single “Sirens”, the title track of her EP coming in summer. I love the piano sparkles, provided by Felix Leblanc.

Here’s another random Bandcamp find. Chersea is from Vancouver and if you skip over the unnecessary “Prelude”, you’ll be delighted by her blend of effortless vocals and danceable percussion.

Here’s a random Bandcamp find from Montreal. Other than that I don’t know much about them but I do dig these beats. They don’t have much on their website besides this song and a promise of an album (that was supposed to be released in March).

Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time for summer jams. For me, that’s bright alt-pop with a certain lo-fi carefree nature. I think I found that in Vancouver’s Nice Try. They just released an EP recently titled Convinced which you can stream below.

Another one in this morning’s chill tunes is this ethereal tune from Calgary/Montreal’s Chalks. So far on her Bandcamp there’s only this one track but I’m intrigued enough to hear more.

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!

Thanks to Silent Shout for the discovery of Mori. The Montreal artist released a 3 song EP free on Bandcamp last October and the music has great hooks and a snuggily familiar tone.

Found this cool tune from Animalia on Bandcamp. Originally from Australia, Jill Krasnicki, now resides in Toronto and is the solo-woman behind Animalia. “Cosmic Swaying” is a sneek peek from her upcoming album Mouth Full of Teeth, which you can get for $2 if you pay more than $2 for this track on Bandcamp. Love the aggressive quality of her voice.

Looks like Bryan from Opopo/Saturns has another project in the works. Meet Zoo Owl, a synthy electronic project that doesn’t stray too far from the others but adds a psychedelic feel. Check out the video for “Twin Mirror”. Zoo Owl will play tomorrow at the Silver Dollar as part of Wavelength Music Festival. See you there!
