Today's New Track

  • The highly-regarded Ontario singer/songwriter has delivered a new video for the title track of her recent album. It accentuates the kinetic energy of a fiery song that has more of a rock edge than the usual psych-tinged country/folk of her material.

    The Toronto indie-rock faves return with a new single and video, The frisky guitars sound a touch Strokes-like, their trademark of quirky melodicism is to the fore, and there are dark lyrics lurking within the jaunty tune.
  • Acclaimed Montreal electro-pop artist Marie-Hélène Delorme will soon release the first of a series of three EPs, Meditations I-II-III. This advance cut reaffirms her knack for original production touches and is a subtly beguiling treat.

  • The former Poet Laureate and Polaris shortlister is grabbing significant attention with this new song and video addressing Toronto's condo boom. Skittering beats underscore his typically fluid wordflow and incisive lyrics.
  • A former member of the much-loved The Be Good Tanyas, she has moved into soul terrain as a solo artist. This cover of a Funkadelic tune parades her compelling and sensual voice to fine effect.
  • This Toronto combo releases its debut full-length album today. Comprising seasoned music veterans, the group has a genre-hopping sound that focuses on rock on this new single, delivered with passion and skill.

  • The Montreal folk-rock songsmith attracted the attention of the Daptone label, and a new album is coming out in its subsidiary Wick. This quasi title cut has a pleasingly psychedelic retro vibe, with Rault's vocals evocative of Marc Bolan.
  • The fun-loving Montreal funk duo is back with another single from an album coming June 15. It confirms both their mastery of the genre and their signature humour.
  • The Canadian country-crossover singer-songwriter has Taylor Swift’s knack for dissecting relationships and delivering a punchline that’s as sweet as a slice of pecan pie.
  • There is a growing body of songs about the tragedy that took place on a lonely stretch of highway outside Tisdale, SK–but this one nails it. Linda Ronstadt couldn’t have captured it better, and that’s saying one heck of a lot.
