Daily, Saturdays and Sundays too, the FYI inbox receives pitches from acts seeking attention which we parse into the new releases section, sometimes into our Track of the Day feature, and when we can into Music Digest, but dozens of the submissions get overlooked. This is one of the difficult parts of running FYI; ignoring acts seeking a promotional aid. It’s not indifference, but a question of time and space.
This sunny Sunday, I have collected some of what came in over the past seven days. Maybe, just maybe, there’s a diamond in the rough here that someone can polish and help put purpose behind the intent these foot soldiers in music put forward.
Rat Silo – I Sacrifice: a veteran’s lament
The first track from the Vancouver band’s just-released album, The World Is Going To End Tomorrow
Yves Jarvis – Victim
Yves Jarvis is a recasting of Montreal-based musician Jean-Sebastian Audet who formerly went by the moniker Un Blonde.
Chèlle – Don’t Need You
The Toronto-based singer-songwriter is working on her first releases as an independent artist. She has received recognition across the globe under her previous name, Michelle Cavaleri.
Francois Klark – Always I ‘Feel the Beat’ ft. Sofia Carson
Always originally appears on Klark’s 2018 debut album Love. Emmy Award-winning choreographer Mia Michaels (So You Think You Can Dance) stumbled upon the song and decided to utilize it multiple times throughout Netflix’s new dance film, Feel the Beat.
