Joel Plaskett Emergency - You’re Mine

Joel Plaskett has done the impossible. Not only has he carved out a successful career for himself here in Halifax (yes, technically Dartmouth, I know this), something the rest of us find challenging at the best of times, but he’s done it in the most fickle of industries. Music is an uphill battle of a [...]

John K. Samson - When I Write My Master’s Thesis

John K. Samson -  Provincial
Here is an uptempo gem from John K. Samson’s upcoming solo album Provincial (Jan. 24th). Like anything Samson does, this is great, and the album will be great, so it would be great if you bought it.

Sandie Black - Gotta Get Free
Here’s a fun slice of electro-rock goodness from new T.O. duo Sandie Black. More of these and I think we might be hearing a lot more about them.

James and Blackburn - We Have No Names for Anything

James and Blackburn
Toronto trio James And Blackburn have just released their debut full-length, Island Universe and if fairly straight-ahead indie rock sounds are your bag, this seems like one to check out. I like what I hear from their lead single We Have No Names for Anything, so I’ll be giving their record a listen I’d say.

INTERSTLLR - OUR DREAMS ARE HERE

  Happy new year! I hope your 2012 is getting off to a fantastic start. Things have been slow around the hill, as we pretty much took a posting break over the festive season, but we’re slowly getting back into the swing of things. Slowly is indeed the key word there, because if you’ve read [...]

Feist - How Come You Never Go There (Beck Remix)

How Come You Never Go There (Beck Remix)
Fact: Feist was born in Nova Scotia. I believe Beck was born on Mars. Or he believes that, not sure which.

SolarSolar - Walking Like Children

SolarSolar - Pilot
Waterloo’s SolarSolar have a full-length album coming out early next year, and if this lovely sneak peak entitled Walking Like Children is any indication, it’s going to be very good.

Maylee Todd - Hieroglyphics (KON & The Gang Remix)

Maylee Todd - Hieroglyphics
I’m fairly certain I will hear nothing today that I enjoy more than this KON remix of Maylee Todd’s new song Hieroglyphics. Fantastic funk. You can get the original for gratis from Maylee & Do Right music, so go do that.
