New Music From The Inbox – Monday Edition! (July 20, 2020): Yukon Blonde, Future History, Easy Love, and more!

Artist: Yukon Blonde

Song: “Get Precious”

Album/EP: Single

A bleary-eyed groove anchors this slinky smooth single from CanCon alt darlings Yukon Blonde. Generous falsettos, organic key sprinklings, and a wonderfully warbling guitar tone also round out the head-nodding vibrations of the semi-psych sizzler.


Artist: Future History

Song: “Bare Your Teeth”

Album/EP: Single

Rapid-fire drums, raspy baritone vocals, and larger-than-life instrumental expanses – no, we’re not talking about Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker, but nobody would fault you for thinking Future History are aspirants to the acronym artists. “Bare Your Teeth” is a heartfelt mood booster that certainly has the potential to inspire a dance move or three.


Artist: Easy Love

Song: “Cool Type”

Album/EP: Wander Feeler

Spacey indie with a bit of a relaxingly vapid tone, Easy Love sets sails for calm seas in single “Cool Type”. Jangling lead guitar, washy drums, and crooning vocals build a gently embracing tune. It’s not quite bedroom bop, but there’s something about this song’s hearty warmth that feels like it was conceived from within soft blankets.


Artist: The Actual Goners

Song: “Cannonball (Live)”

Album/EP: The Actual Goners

Live performances don’t usually make it into the Inbox, but The Actual Goners’ foot-in-the-lake easygoingness of “Cannonball” puts it a cut above most live submissions. Sinewy lead guitar flitting up and down the fretboard locks in step with the rhythm section’s effortless swing and completes a charming, accessible everyman sort of folk rock tune.


Mathew Kahansky

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
