Kristen Cudmore aka Language Arts will be releasing their LP Wonderkind on April 1st. The title track has this adorable video featuring inanimate objects with faces. Not entirely sure what the main character is supposed to be, but I want one!
Doing some catch-up on music posts I missed. After collaborating with Arcade Fire‘s Will Butler on the Her soundtrack, Owen Pallett has finally let loose a track from his upcoming album In Conflict. Here’s “The Riverbed”. Enjoy.
West-coast progressive-rock favs Bend Sinister premiere video for their fan-favourited single “Teacher”, off the upcoming release Animals due March 11. The band enlisted the help of a very important source, the fans, to help decide whether to shoot a video for this or a much poppier ‘Fancy Pants’. The feedback leaned towards the former, and voila!
You know those days when you feel like everything seems to go wrong and you are stressed as hell?! This song seems to be the one that could calm me down from those. Here’s Vancouver’s Hunting letting you know that “Everything Will be Okay”.
Transatlanticism. No, not the Death Cab for Cutie album. I am talking about the Montreal/Stockholm husband-wife duo Thus Owls. Made up of Erika and Simon Angell, they are releasing their new album, Turning Rocks on April 8 through Secret City Records. If you can’t bare the wait, you can watch the video of “As Long as We Try a Little” on repeat. The video matches the abstract nature of the song, which is about Erika’s grandmother’s two aunts (try to keep up here!)- who were seamstresses that lived and worked together, until one of their untimely ends.
You will only have to try a little to love this song.
Acoustic guitar sounds + engaging bass + enticing high pitched vocals = Kae Sun
“Blackstar Rising” is off Afriyie, sophomore effort from the talented Ghanian/Canadian singer songwriter. The album is an intriguing listen. The video, shot in Toronto, features child astronaut trainees.
