More Music from the Inbox, 24 July 2013: City and the Sea, The Coppertone, Mount Fuji and More

By Larry Lootsteen

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”

Album: N/A

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”

Album: N/A

Very new, punkish sound (and more) from Birmingham, UK.

Sounds like:  A blender of sound



Artist: DZ Deathrays, “Dollar Chills (remix)”

Album: Bloodstreams

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”

Album: Peach

Self-released sophomore album from this Chicago-based band

Sounds like:  Pink Floyd’s The Wall, with a Beatles twist
