  • The personal and musical chemistry of the two singer/songwriters, one Canadian, one German, shines through on this charming cut, the first single from the duo's debut album. It features sweet harmonies and heartfelt lyrics and is accompanied by an equally appealing video.
  • The hitmakers behind "Rude" and Kiss Me" have high expectations for their upcoming album. This title track is a more mellow affair than those songs, but it features some sage advice while showcasing their considerable songcraft.
  • The prolific pop singer/songwriter previews a new album with this impressive electro-pop cut. His softly melodic vocals are placed atop repetitive keyboard figures, and the '80s-flavoured tune is gently insinuating.

  • The Ontario singer/songwriter releases a new record, Youth, on Sept. 7. It is described as a coming-of-age album, as evidenced by this advance cut. Producer/co-writer Colin Munroe adds contemporary touches, while the sweet melodicism of Mattson's boyish vocals remains to the fore.
  • The Juno-nominated blues/roots artist turns her hand to Memphis soul on this advance cut from an EP coming in the fall. Her expressive vocals give it a steamy and sensual feel, just like a summer night on the Mississippi.
  • 35 years on, the prog-metal favourites remain a potent force. The opening track on an upcoming album, this features their trademark tight and heavy sound, a searing guitar solo and more of their typical sci-fi-based imagery.
