Off of their reworked EP, A Hot Second With The Velveteins, “Hanging From The Ceiling” is a wonderfully groovy little tune that pays homage to pop music’s most wholesome of eras, the 1950s.

I love it when traces of a band’s geography can be heard in their sound­­––that’s definitely the case with Calgary trio Ultraviolence. Their latest track “Radiation” is pensive prairie post-punk at its finest.

Off of their debut EP Have A Sip, “Stay Gone” from Brooklyn based duo Nail Polish serves up a healthy dose of power-pop-garage-punk with a dash of bratty recklessness just for good measure.

BC outfit Woodland Telegraph has returned with a brand new LP titled, screendeath summersong. A concept album about screen culture and the big-box landscape in and around the Cambrige­–K/W area, it’s also the band’s final release in a trilogy of Canadian landscape inspired records. For a taste, checkout “Pixelate” below––it’s a beauty.
