Happy Thursday everyone! I’m super excited that the lovely Ainsley McNeaney has been selected for a Showcase at NxNE this year! Working with her is a real pleasure and we had such a great time at Canadian Music Week, I can’t wait for the next Showcase! I’ll be announcing details (date, time & venue) really soon!
New music video: The National released a video for their single “Sea of Love”, from their forthcoming album Trouble Will Find Me, out May 21. The band is playing on June 13 at Lachine Canal in Montreal with The Barr Brothers and a free show for NxNE at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto the next day. Check out the video below.
In other news, I wrote 2 music blog posts for AWS and you can read them right here.
Monday morning you sure look fine
The weekend is already over and I’m up super early to get work done.
Last week, Phillys’s Kurt Vile released a new video for the track “Never Run Away” off his newest LP, Wakin’ On A Pretty Daze. Directed by the Harrys, Kurt Vile is dressed in a white outfit and takes a ride around Philadelphia neighborhoods. Not my favorite song, but I like this dreamy video.
Have a great Monday everyone!
Happy Saturday everyone!
This week has just been flying by! Apologies for the lack of updates, but my life has been pretty busy lately. May is finally here, summer is right around the corner and it’s going to be a fabulous weekend. Life couldn’t be any better!
Nothing like starting your day with some Rock N’ Roll, right? Toronto indie rockers Hooded Fang are back with a new track ‘Graves’ off from their upcoming third album ‘Gravez‘ due out on May 28. Here is their colorful and psychedelic video for this new song.
Happy Record Store day! It’s time to celebrate independently owned Record Stores so you know what to do today! Here is a guide to Record Store Day in Montreal.
This week I came across this song and it’s been on repeat ever since. The Afro beat mixed with brass and some rock vocals makes me want to dance.
Monday I was invited to Artefact Festival launch. Leif Vollebekk, Plants and Animals, We are Wolves and Karim Ouellet are among the artists playing this year’s festival. You can find the full lineup here. It was a friendly event and it was nice to meet new people. I bumped into a friend and apparently we didn’t know each other that well. I didn’t know Patrick had a folk music project so he gave me his CD. Here is the first track off his album “Don’t believe everything you hear in songs”. It’s a super catchy tune.
I’m happy to have met the lovely Gabriella Hook. She is super sweet and I’m really digging her album “Build a Storm”. Here is my favorite track “Barrels & Bears” and you can listen to the whole album here.
It’s always fun chatting with bands on Twitter and this week I had the pleasure to e-meet Mimi Cry, an indie-pop band from Toronto. Here is ”Don’t Wait Up”, a cute catchy song. Michael Olsen from Arcade Fire plays cello on that track. If you’re in Toronto, they are playing The Horseshoe on April 29th.
Wishing you all a great weekend!
The first time I heard that song we were driving along the Atlantic Coast on a sunny day. And then I found myself listening to this song over and over again for a really long time and remembering all the memories that go with it. Here is the brand-new video from Los Angeles band Family of the Year for their song “Hero”, directed by Isaac Rentz. The band released Loma Vista last summer and “Hero” has peaked at #18 on the Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
