“Red Lipstick” from Low Cut High Tops is as satisfying as a perfectly blended milkshake peppered with all of the fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched, self-loathing snarl of a Garbage song and the pop-quirk of Mother Mother. It’s all that shit and a bag of chips. Alright, okay?

Taking its cues from glitch, electro-pop and Modern R’n’B, whilst managing to sound absolutely nothing like any of them, “Keep Me Awake” from alt-pop outfit Liskka relishes in the glow of its own strange and shadowy warmth.

Classically cinematic and rich with warm velvety melodies, “Rain” from Port aux Basques, Newfoundland singer-songwriter LeRiche bears all the hallmarks of a silvery-era long gone but never forgotten. Oh, and that’s real rain you’re hearing on this track.

Mark Martyre is a rare musical beauty. His voice goes down like a glass of rye, harsh but smooth, and he plays like he bleeds, wholeheartedly. Check out “Long Goodbye.”
