How a year has changed for Keith Mosfet.
Previously posted about him in 2018.
Looks like he did a complete 180.
Ditching the indie folk-rock to more of a angsty retro-rock sound with Superficial Hypocrite.
About the song:
“I wanted to write a song that would take the piss out of my generation and I.
Naturally, I went for the jugular of our fake Instagram lifestyle.
Putting a mirror to myself while also placing a mirror on the people surrounding me, “Superficial Hypocrite” is full of self-deprecating humour about the collective stupidity we’ve all fallen victim to.”
Toronto band Eden Warsaw dropped part 1 of 2 music video for Ecstasy.
Ecstasy sonically distorts conventional electronic with a Coachella-esque, free-spirited vibe.
The band has matured and grown so much, with both their touring experience and bringing a more raw & alternative sound.
They are looking forward to sharing part two of this video along with their upcoming album.
Don’t know how long we have to wait for new material from Caribou.
But Dan Snaith’s other project Daphni just released a new track based around Bermudian band Paradise’s 1981 track ‘Sizzlin Hot’.
From their album of the same name, released by themselves and largely forgotten until it was reissued by Frederiksberg Records in 2017, Daphni updates this lost gem for today’s dancefloor.
Made originally to be played in his DJ sets but now released (with the full approval of the original band) Dan quickly realised that he was on to something special: “From the very first time I played it on New Years Eve 2018, it lights up the room every time I play it. The hook is so immediate – people respond to it like it’s a song they already know and love.”
‘Sizzling’ will appear alongside 3 other tracks made to play in Dan’s recent DJ sets on an EP to be released soon.
Where has Laurent Bourque been?
Have no fear! Today he dropped the music video for Matador.
Taken from his forthcoming sophomore album called Blue Hour which drops around the fall time.
The toronto rooted, ottawa born artist teamed up with east coast producer Dan Ledwell, along with co-writers Dennis Ellsworth and Bobby Morales to pen a chic piano-driven pop song about blind love.
Been meaning to review this wonderful album that was released on March 1, 2019.
It is the Winnipeg’s Living Hour.
Softer Faces which is their sophomore release is out on the cool hip label Kanine Records.
The album is a blend of dream/psychedelic pop, shoegaze music.
The first time listening to Bottom Step, it bought of alot of emotions like be in a dreamy warm like state and weepy with Sam Sarty’s vocals when she sings about not having the courage to talk to that person in the party.
The whole album is filled with unrequited love and trying not to be alone in these hormonal teenage times.
Can’t think of a band that uses a trombone and trumpet and make it sounds so beautiful and haunting.
They are Canada’s answer to Beach House.
One of my favourite albums of 2019 to listen to while you are lying on your bed.

Iron Age Mystics is a Toronto hard rock band.
Just dropped their debut album “Pride Before the Fall” on May 19, 2019.
With what is going on in the world political wise and in the USA, this album is considered cutting edge political music.
Pride Before the Fall is loud, brash and in your face that gets us political crazy.
It touches subjects rarely put to music, again in the aim to inspire critical thinking and a call action.
While the themes can be dark and it’s a middle ground between acknowledging the change makers and exposing the claimed wrong doers. Melodies are deep and diverse, riffs are thrusting, while vocals and lyrics are a journey – ‘Pride Before The Fall’ is reclaiming meaning and purpose in Rock ‘n’ Roll.
While it is not my cup of tea listening to this album but it might be for those who is into loud rock and wants to flip the bird at politics and current events.
