Artist: Mouth Breather
Song: “Mysteries of Nature”
Album/EP: Single

From Montreal alt-funk artist Mouth Breather, “Mysteries of Nature” is slightly bent and yet funky as fuck.

Artist: Novel Nature
Song: “Indigo”
Album/EP: Blue

Off of their forthcoming EP Blue, “Indigo,” from Seattle alt-rock duo Novel Nature has the same sort of spacey and deeply atmospheric vibe that made Kings of Leon’s Only By The Night so palatable.

Artist: Pokey LaFarge
Song: “Better Man Than Me”
Album/EP: Manic Revelations

Pokey LaFarge is the kind of throwback that warms the heart––like Hank Snow meets The Crew-Cuts–––50 years ago he’d have found a home on 1050 CHUM.

Artist: Childhood
Song: “California Light”
Album/EP: Universal High

Here’s what you need to know about “California Light” from South London’s Childhood: it’s sun-kissed, soul-infused, and silky-smooth.
