Be Astronaut is a band from Montreal consisting of Guillaume Theroux on guitar & vocals, Gabriel Jetté on bass and Pascal Beauregard on drums.
A cross between Rush, Dave Matthews Band, Young The Giant and Incubus
They dropped their song Bipolar Spectrum today.
Have a listen to this indie power rock track.
cleopatrick was a band that I caught during CMW 2018.
The Cobourg Ontario act dropped a single called youth.
Here is what they say about the hard alt-rocking song:
““youth” is a fuck you to all the perversion and disrespect that i was trapped in high school with. i want them to know that i haven’t forgotten.”
Single came out on June 28, 2018.
In a mood for some country pop music?
Listen to the song by Montreal’s The Mark Ian Rock Man Project called Stay With Me which features Sabrina Purdy.
It is something you will hear similar to on CBC Radio 2.
Reminds me of Blue Rodeo and Kathleen Edwards.
This has to be one of the most powerful records by Jeremy Dutcher I have heard so far in 2018.
While I am not familiar with the Wolastoqey language.
Music is definitely a global language.
Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa which translate to Our Maliseet Songs.
11 tracks filled with raw emotional and very beautiful music and booming operatic vocals.
Haunting at times with the clips of Wolastoq songs from 1907 wax cylinders.
With so much going on in the world.
We need to pause, think and treat others with respect and kindness.
This is what the album trying to do with healing and reconciling.
Definitely a sure-shot to be on the Polaris Music Prize shortlist and the Junos.

- Essuwonike (Trading Song)
- Ultestakon (Shaker Lullaby)

I’d give this album:
Chastity is one of those acts that I really want to see live.
Today the powerful music video for Children was released online.
Quoting – “‘Children’ channels the outrage of a community into a beautifully shot video that spotlights both the vulnerability and the solidarity of youth.”
The video is centred around an incident and events that followed in Williams hometown of Whitby. An off-duty police officer named Michael Theriualt and his brother allegedly beat a young black man, Dafonte Miller, with a steel pipe while he was walking near his home which left the victim blind in one eye.
While the band name kind of gives you the giggles and very long to say.
The band is called Concrete Pete and The Bathroom Floortiles and they are a duo from Toronto/Thornhill.
Consisting of members Bruno Romano on vocals/guitar and Anthony Tollis on drums.
A 2-minute grungey rock banger called I Need A Name from their debut album of the same night.
Sounds very classic 70s rock with today’s sound.
Simple yet highly effective, the track is reminiscent of childhood figures that mostly left us confused, rather than depicting the reality of society, or what was really happening.
Details will be announced on the full-length album.
Do listen to this song which should get you head-banging and rocking out air guitar style.
