Off of his new EP, That Which You Can’t Throw Away, “Roads” from Hamilton’s Billy Moon is a strangely impassioned feel good slice of slacker rock and I’m ridiculously into this track right now.

Phili folk outfit Oldermost has just released a rendition of Graham Nash’s “I Used To Be A King” and it’s an absolute beauty. Slipping in seamlessly among their earlier releases, there is a sweetness about this track that speaks to the soul of American rock.

Sometimes years of struggle, extended hiatuses, frustrating Skype calls, relentless file sharing, and the sheer chaos of everyday life gives way to spontaneous fits of inspiration that happen to be captured on a cell phone and wired between Ottawa and Hamilton into incredibly moving music.

“Settle Down” from Dark Mean is exactly that.

From JonoJosh, “Birds” is electric with the weight of the blues, drippin’ with a yearning to answer questions of the soul, and tangled in a groove that harkens back to the sounds of old school R&B.

Standout lyric: “Birds do not need the world to be explained but I do.”
