Sounds like: Gotta love those French horns.

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…”

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…”

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…”

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.”
