[WATCH] LEONARD COHEN – ALMOST LIKE THE BLUES

OK, maybe not “indie” in the sense of being on an independent label, but he’s indie in attitude And most definitely Canadian. It also helps that he’s from Montreal, because that city just doesn’t get enough recognition when it comes to music….

[WATCH] MARK MILLS – GIN & CATATONIC

No Comments 23 August 2014

by Mark Anthony Brennan

Despite the somewhat cheesy-sounding analog electropop beats, Mark Mills’ songs are sincere and personal. The video to “Gin & Catatonic” takes the DIY aesthetic to the extreme — I think even I could have bankrolled this one!

By Nele Van Aerde

So I get really excited about the Polaris Music Prize every year, but this year they’ve upped the ante with the Polaris Cover Sessions. There will be three releases from albums that have made the short-list in the past: Sarah Harmer will cover Caribou’s “Odessa” Whitehorse will cover The New Pornographers’ “Bones Of An Idol” and Great Lake Swimmers will cover Sarah Harmer’s “I’m A Mountain”.

The first release is here and it’s gorgeous. Only 31 more days until the Polaris gala!
