Today's New Track

    Oh Susanna: My Boyfriend
    The acclaimed roots music songstress previews her upcoming album A Girl In Teen City with a vibrant focus track that is a departure from her signature poetic melancholy. It recalls the days of her youth with real humour and insight.
  • The New Electric: T-Shirt
    The Calgary combo follows up earlier hit “Life’s What You Make It” with another tasty pop confection that pairs gently sensual lyrics with an ear-grabbing melody and strong production chops.
  • Kayla Diamond: Carnival Hearts
    Set in an abandoned amusement park, this track takes the listener on a thrilling rollercoaster ride. It is the debut single from a recent winner of Slaight Music’s It’s Your Shot contest.
  • The Dirty Nil: Caroline
  • Land Of Talk: Loving
    Land of Talk has actually been silent for the past seven years, as Montreal singer/songwriter Liz Powell placed her highly-regarded project on indefinite hiatus.
  • Taylor Knox: Running Into Love
    The noted Toronto drummer has stepped into the spotlight as a solo artist, to great effect. This tune from an upcoming full-length debut is an upbeat power-pop gem.

    This track from roots songsmith Burton has the best opening of a country song we’ve heard in a while: “Got no God that I can thank, got no money in the bank."
  • Timber Timbre: Grifting
    The quartet's signature brand of atmospheric melancholia is replaced by a funky feel more evocative of ‘80s-era Prince on this track from the forthcoming album, Sincerely, Future Pollution.
  • DIANA - What You Get
    This Toronto synth-pop outfit has just announced a North American summer tour as well as releasing a new video for this cut from their much-praised second album Familiar Touch.

    The Toronto ensemble released their self-titled debut in June 2015 so the release of a video for this focus track now suggests the album is proving itself to have long legs.
