Crystal Eyes • The Sweetness Restored • 2022

 The opening line of The Sweetness Restored, the second full-length release from Canadian indie shoegaze/dream pop band Crystal Eyes, displays a kind of wistful self-awareness right from the start.

Jaguero • Sunday • 2022

The four friends came up with the name "Jaguero" during a night of partying, a crazy union between a wild animal and a soccer player. They immediately fell in love with the idea, imagining "Jaguero" as a lucha-libre wrestler, who spends his life between obscurity and glory.

The four come from disparate experiences: Slander (Matteo Marangoni), La Fortuna (Andrea Cichellero's solo project) and Regarde (Guido Dal Prà and Andrea Campesato Segnini). In this EP they mix the reference sounds of their various artistic paths as well as their own varied musical tastes.

Tom Jenkins • Magic Mushroom Island • 2022

Following his recent signing to Xtra Mile Recordings, ex-Straight Lines frontman Tom Jenkins has unveiled an anthemic new single that veers towards fresh sonic territory. 

Straying slightly from his acoustic folk-tinged roots, “Magic Mushroom Island” is an exhilarating new cut with larger-than-life instrumentals and an exultant earworm chorus. Building to an electric crescendo with roiling riffs and a colossal guitar breakdown that nods to the legendary works of Led Zeppelin, Jenkins is also joined at the track’s climax by esteemed Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell

Los Saints • Fouund You Somewhere • 2022

"Los Saints don’t mess around on their new single “Fouund You Somewhere”: Some scratchy chords right out of the Strokes playbook, then — bam — the Chula Vista-bred trio launches into a chorus the feels like you’ve just taken off over the deep blue seas west of San Diego International Airport."- Buzzbands

“Don’t let the longing and regret behind the lyrics fool you — the guitar-led track glitters with optimistic tones.”- Alternative Press

"Los Saints are your next indie obsession...reminiscent of veteran indie-rockers The Strokes. Perfect to play on a late-night drive."- The Honey Pop

Hashimoto • That Would Be You • 2022

You will always be
A true fighter for the sea
You help us understand
What we need to help the land

The coolest person ever
To sit on a St-Viateur terrace
That would be you, always you
The groovy shades
The clothes you made
The smile that feels like Saturday

It killed me every time
It killed me every time
You pronounced B-u-t-t-o-n-s
I miss it

One time we got to be
Music Circle King and Queen
We sang Daniel Lanois’ Stormy Sky
I hold that memory tight
I hold that memory high

Who’s that on the bike?
A damn cool rock star
Korg in the basket
You’re a star of Mile End
Fighter for the planet
You’re its excellent friend

It’s a certainty
You will always be
The coolest person on St-Viateur
That would be you
Always you


Alex G • End Song | We're All Going to the World's Fair • 2022

Both creepy and cozy, the Pennsylvania singer-songwriter’s original score amplifies the melancholic beauty that hovers at the edges of director Jane Schoenbrun’s deeply online horror.

Slow Down Molasses - Street Haunting | Vator Sessions

“Noise-rocking Saskatoon neo-shoegazers find corroded melodies in the wreckage of a rock anthem”
“A happy medium between delay-shimmer histrionics and the cinematic haze of Slowdive”
“Fusing shoegaze tapestries to a post-punk framework”

Green Sky Accident • Screams At Night • 2022

Screams at night is the name of Green Sky Accident's last single before their new album Daytime TV is released the 20th of May on Apollon Records. The lyrics deal with being stuck in a dead end job which is slowly sucking the joy out of your life. Contrasting this melancholia is a big lively production: Drums with heaps of reverb, guitars with a bite to them and a vocal line that consists of a choir of voices. We hope this song might inspire you to quit your job and say "sayonara blood suckers!"

Green Sky Accident from Bergen - Norway plays indierock with lots of energy,
catchy riffs and a whole lotta love. A good melody is essential for every song, the arrangements are always built around those. Their music can be compared to the indie heroes of the nineties, jangly and noisy, sweet while still packing a punch.

Burn The Louvre • Alison (feat. Stephanie Deshane) • 2022

"Alison" is a fun indie pop duet featuring singer/songwriter Stephanie Deshane. It's about that person who comes into your life and leaves very suddenly, but I'd like to think that a girl like "Alison" always leaves on a positive note. The moral of the story is that just because an interaction or relationship might be temporary, that doesn't mean that it can't be meaningful.

Louvre Doors • Sometimes It Starts Again • 2022


A collection of songs for the dreamers, the romantics, and the nostalgia-stricken, featuring down-tuned acoustic guitars, double-tracked vocals, analogue toy keyboards, harpsichords borrowed from the lighter side of yé-yé. Soundtrack your afternoon walks or your bus rides home. Inspired by confessional singer-songwriters and Nouvelle Vague maestros Georges Delerue and Michel Legrand. But, above all, indebted to the exquisite kindness and hope underlying the films of Agnès Varda and Jacques Demy. 

"Le souvenir du bonheur, c'est peut-être encore le bonheur"

Orville Peck • The Curse of the Blackened Eye • 2022

“This is my most impassioned and authentic album to date,” Peck remarked in a statement. “I was inspired by country rock, ’60s & ’70s psychedelic, California, and even bluegrass with everything being anchored in country. Bronco is all about being unrestrained and the culmination of a year of touring, writing in isolation and going through and ultimately emerging from a challenging personal time.” PF

Wet Leg • Ur Mum • 2022

When I think about what you've become
I feel sorry for your mum
You say we're all having fun
Do you know you're the only one?
And when the lights go down on this fucking town
I know it's time to go
And when the radio plays and the static stays
Yeah, I know it's time to go

I get up
To go now
I give up
Up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up
On you now

I don't want you to want me
I need you to forget me
Yeah, I loved you, that was crazy
'Cause you just don't motivate me

Dana Gavanski • I Kiss The Night • 2022

Taken from her forthcoming album When It Comes which is out on April 29 through Flemish Eye, Dana Gavanski has today shared the video for the opening track on the LP, "I Kiss The Night". The video, directed by Gaia Alari, is made up of 1,700 hand-drawn frames, around 12 drawings per second, creating a beautiful stop motion animation that fits the music perfectly.

"Gavanski sounds at peace, her voice pushing past its limitations to reach a sing-song quality that feels transcendent rather than childish"

“Spending time in Gavanski's world is a breath of fresh air, and we're glad she's let us in again.”
– CBC Music (12 albums you need to hear)

“Lithe baroque pop that distills fuzzied feelings of nostalgia”

Nrvs • Scum • 2022

“Nrvs have an innate punk swagger” Hard of Hearing 

“Perhaps the anarchic drive behind Nrvs and other bands in the agitprop arena is a necessary cultural response” Subba-Cultcha

“…off-kilter post-punk bangers” Louder Than War

With its abrasive minimalist post-punk feel along with Velvets inspired grunge guitar, this latest song (& the first they ever wrote) sees band member Ten Pence proclaiming deeply about his place in the world and the seeming futility behind trying to make a difference. “So what about Scum? We’re all scum” say Nrvs, “we’re the future of the human race and we’re fucked, as Extinction Rebellion used to say when they were cool - and we love it, or at least we seem to! Us lot just happen to be feeling it at the moment cos we happen to be alive now, so we’re the toppest layer of the pond… scum, get it?”

“restless and incendiary alt-rock with hints of ’90s slacker rock influences and backed up by motoring Krautrock… perfect for alternative and rock playlists, plus angsty contextual ones too, this blast of rock goodness is sure to please any ’90s rock fan, old or new!”

Advance Base • Little Sable Point Lighthouse • 2022

For the weekend
that Elise turned 28
she booked a motel room
on the Michigan side of the lake
with her boyfriend CJ
a couple miles down the way
from Little Sable Point Lighthouse

They went swimming
drank beer & watched TV
but on the second night
CJ couldn't sleep
so he snuck out with her keys
& drove the Cherokee
out to see the lighthouse

Staring up at the tower
watching the big light spin
hypnotized by the silver beam
that cut right through the dim
that's how Elise imagined him
he was never seen again

Years later
in Michigan again
for the second wedding
of an old school friend
Elise & her husband
happen by
Little Sable Point Lighthouse

Just a ghost now
decommissioned some time before
it had been the site
of endless imagined horror
but with a calm that surprised her
Elise parked the car
& walked out to see the lighthouse

Staring up at the tower
that now stood dark
surrounded by the quiet
of Silver Lake State Park
Elise squinted at the scene
she remembered from her dreams

“‘Dreamers’ is inspired by the futility that musicians feel in the pursuit of success,” said Roye. “For most artists, the dream is to become successful in their craft. This song is about dreams not coming true and falling short of your goals. It's about the personal sacrifices that artists often have to make in the pursuit of success and how for most of us, will gladly continue with the struggle, knowing that the dream is largely unattainable.”

Roye Trout is a Vietnamese/Chinese-Canadian singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Windsor, ON. He is also a member of the bands Eraserhead, No Hands, and Lychi. 

His new song, “Dreamers,” is written with the hope that listeners can empathize with the complex feelings of frustration and fulfillment that musicians often experience. For many artists, the pursuit of their craft is seen by others as an unsustainable passion and generally a poor decision. There's a perverse irony in the idea that an artist often earns respect not based on the merits of their creation, but on their success in growing an audience.

Mike Cionni • Be My Cocoon • 2022

“‘Be My Cocoon’ is a love letter to my partner, Bree. Quite frankly, I have no interest in writing romantic songs. It’s always felt like saying ‘I love you’ just to hear it repeated back. But the concept came up naturally, and felt like a path less traveled, so I took it. The lyrics were finished within an hour. I remember laughing a lot. Writing the song taught me something new about partnership. I always thought I needed someone who could make me a better person; iron out my weaknesses and help me reach my full potential. But what I really needed was a person whose strengths were my weaknesses."

Mamas Gun • Good Love • 2022

“... a modern soul classic with a deeply funky groove. Supremely mellow and smooth... feels vibrantly fresh while maintaining a slinky soul vibe that takes you straight back to the more moody and sensual sounds of the ‘70s when acts like Curtis Mayfield and Parliament Funkadelic were dominating the landscape. ” - GLIDE MAGAZINE

No Frills • "Dark Horse" • 2022

"The track is a sweet, lo-fi/jangle-pop tune, reminiscent of summer days, despite it’s slightly gloomier lyrical material"
SPILL Magazine

"The track greets us with a delightfully meandering guitar-line and steady driving rhythm, nodding to the late-noughties-ilk of Darwin Deez or Here We Go Magic [...] delicious sound as refreshingly cool as lemonade on a summer’s afternoon"
For the Rabbits

"There is a lovely groovy shimmer to it all, painting with broad strokes on a colorful pallete of sharp jangly guitar riffs and a bedroom pop psych sound, like a mix of Tops, Men I Trust and early Mac DeMarco."
