New Music From The Inbox: FOXTROTT, The Feeling, Séan McCann, Leif Vollebekk, Hunting

By: Juliette Jagger

Artist: FOXTROTT “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out”
Album: Cover (The Smiths)
Rarely do you come across a video that so clearly renders the electricity of a live moment, after it’s already gone.

Sounds like: Gotta love those French horns.


Artist: The Feeling
Boy Cried Wolf

Here’s a witty take on the album teaser video and the sometimes hilarity that comes along with being band in the digital age.

Sounds like:  “Look, I’m sorry guys by the world has changed. It’s about Instagramming and Facebooking and all that shit. We need to make meems not music…”



Artist: Séan McCann “Help Yourself”
Help Yourself

This is the latest from Séan McCann. Recorded and produced by Joel Plaskett, its raw, thumpin’ east coast Canadiana at it’s finest.

Sounds like: “Pills for sleepin’, pills for eatin’, pills for keepin’ me awake…”


Artist: Leif Vollebekk “When The Subway Comes Above The Ground”
North Americana

Vollebekk has this breathless spoken vocal style–like a melodic Dylan–that gives such a weight to his words and his stories a gut wrenching appeal.

Sounds like: “I guess it’s better to have left and laughed then to have never left at all…”



Artist: Hunting “Everything Is Going To Be Okay”

There is something completely comforting about the sorrow in Ferguson’s voice.

Sounds like: “Faces bleeding on the floor, scrolling verses on the wall, with them your not the only one, it’s come undone.”
