MAGNOLIUS - Selaron

The Internet is sometimes amazing. A Toronto hip hop duo makes a song inspired by a reverred Brazilian artist. Said artist has no idea about the song. A Portuguese graphic artist is inspired to create a wonderful video for the song, and gets a friend in Brazil to inform artist about the song and tape [...]

Ria Mae - Under Your Skin

Perusing the ECMA results from this past weekend led to an to-too-familiar set of thoughts after reading that Halifax’s Ria Mae won Pop Recording of the year. These thoughts are something like “Uhhh, have we covered Ria Mae on the hill before? Surely we have. I think we have. We’ve meant to, so me must [...]

Wordburglar - Rhyme O’ Clock f. More Or Les

Here’s your new favorite hip hop video, you’re welcome and that was easy. Well perhaps it’s not quite that easy, but take two of the funniest, lyrically nimble and most charismatic MC’s you could find, put them in a visually-pleasing, hijinks-filled video, and I’mma bring back the Parker Lewis reference for you, because you cannot [...]

Hey Ocean! - Big Blue Wave

Just look at this video for Big Blue Wave off their last EP: balloons, kids, young love, happy music times and Shad quietly reading [...]

The Extremities - Around the Corner f. Ambiton & Relic

Around the Corner, shot in Toronto by Caley MacLennan and Daniel Jardin, features Fresh Kils & Uncle Fester, along with guest MC’s Ambition & Relic out and about in Toronto. [...]

Modulok - Just Not Cool Anymore

I’m planning to post a review of Modulok’s You Look So Tragic next week, but it’s awesome, so you should go and listen to it right now. You can also get a taste of what longtime hill-fave Modulok has to offer this time out by watching the delightfully malevolent video for Just Not Cool Anymore, [...]

Jay Mayne - That Man Goes

Here’s another video I enjoy, and one that’s perfect for low-key, late night viewing. It features Halifax (I know, Dartmouth) MC escaping to the abandoned textile factory near Windsor NS to indulge in the things he loves most: skating & chopping trees (that’s smoking the hydro, for those of you, like me, whose weed-related slang [...]
