By: Juliette Jagger

Artist: Illitry “If I Am Wrong”
Album: Remix
I love a band that can balance intension with such delicacy.

Sounds like: “I’m still shaking, shaking, shaking…”

Artist: Shy Boys “Bully Fight”
Shy Boys

There is a beautiful, contagious simplicity hiding between the Shy Boy’s faint choirboy harmonies and warm surfy-guitars.

Artist: Jeremy and The Harlequins “Trip Into The Light”
Jeremy and The Harlequins

This is good shit right here. Raw, unadulterated vocals, foot-stomping drumbeats and sultry, enigmatic lyrics that immediately call to mind the days of good ‘ol rock and roll.

Sounds like: “Well, I kinda want ya baby, I kinda need ya.”


Artist: TRUST “Rescue, Mister”

While “Rescue, Mister” is a more refined, clubbier track than anything off of the Toronto outfits 2012 debut, it manages to maintain that fundamental darkness that made this act so appealing in the first place.

Sounds like:  “You best be right…”

Artist: LA+CH & Dustbuster “Hunter”
Right off the top there is a clear and distinct atmospheric vibrancy about this song.

Sounds like:  “When you hunt me, when you hunt me down…”
