Artist: City and the Sea, “Living It Up”
Album: Action Figures
I’ve been seeing a lot of great music coming out of Hamilton, Ontario lately…
Sounds like: Straight on rock storytelling…
Artist: The Coppertone , “Young Blood”
This Ontario singer-songwriter (real name: Amanda Zelina) has some real chops and deserves a look.
Sounds like: Florence cloned herself with her machine
Artist: Mount Fuji, “White Caps”
Very new, punkish sound (and more) from Birmingham, UK.
Sounds like: A blender of sound
Artist: DZ Deathrays, “Dollar Chills (remix)”
This band from Brisbane, Australia really hits it. This one was in my wheelhouse for sure. Give them a listen.
Sounds like: Modernized 80’s electronica
Artist: R. Shelley, “Sink or Swim”
Album: Sink or Swim
Toronto-based songstress making beautiful noise with that Taylor acoustic…
Sounds like: A little Blue Rodeo mixed with 54-40 perhaps
Artist: Secret Colours, “Peach”
Self-released sophomore album from this Chicago-based band
Sounds like: Pink Floyd’s The Wall, with a Beatles twist
