“Pain” is the latest from Vaughan, Ontario based alternative rock band Stuck On Planet Earth and it’s definitely a heavy-duty, kick you in the teeth kind of track.

There is something incredibly intriguing about Montreal psych-rock outfit​ Elephant Stone and there’s a great little story behind this track. Frontman Rishi Dhir is said to have written the song while trying to set music to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, much like what John Lennon did for The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows”.

The Weakness is the latest musical offering from Toronto-based indie-folk artist Faye Blais. With its pounding drumbeats, shimmering synths and delicate, soulful vocal delivery, this one errs more on the side of electro-pop, but there’s an immediate sense of drama about this track (think MS MR or London Grammar).
