The wait is over! After a three year drought!
Rich Aucoin dropped a new single plus music video for Release!
The track is instrumental but it has that Euro-electro dance vibe a-la Daft Punk.
Rich Aucoin’s “Release” was directed by Dave Hung, who worked on Kanye West’s infamous Famous video, and was shot on four separate occasions off the coastline of Nova Scotia.
Hold – EP drops on March 16, 2018!
A band that you should check out in 2018.
Royal Brat are a queer punk band from Minneapolis, sharing catchy meditations on empowerment, survival through trauma, accountability, and other important topics for artistic communities.
Today they dropped the single Full Tilt Duster.
The track is taken from their debut LP “Eyesore” which drops on February 23, 2018 via Moniker Records.
On the January 8th show of No Filter.
I played a track from Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Nadine.
Today she released the third single Pews which is taken from the upcoming album Oh My dropping on Janauary 26, 2018 via Father Daughter Records.
Nadine says the track is a jazzy avant-pop song about chaos and spirituality.
Born Ruffians yesterday dropped the third single for Miss You.
The single is from their upcoming album Uncle, Duke & the Chief which drops on February 16, 2018.
Since there is no music video which should be a collaboration with Leah Fay Goldstein and Peter Dreimanis of July Talk, but you will have to listen to the song instead.
Don’t forget the band will be playing a 2 night show at The 27 Club on March 7 & 8.
Opening up for them will be Brave Shores.
Trace Mountains which is the project of LVL UP‘s Dave Benton, today has released the single “Turn Twice.”
It is taken from his debut full length album, A Partner To Lean On which drops on March 30, 2018.
If you like lo-fi pop rock with some potty language and easy listening music.
Unlike his older solo material, on A Partner to Lean On Benton enlisted the talents of his friends, including Kyle Seely (of Sheer Mag on drums), Jim Hill (of Painted Zeros on electric guitar and synthesizer), Nick Corbo (of LVL UP on bass), and vocal contributions by Susannah Cutler (Yours Are The Only Ears) and Ben Smith.
It’s been awhile since I last heard from Toronto’s (Ottawa ex-pat) Rolemodel.

A nice ambient electronic dream pop track, reminds me of St. Lucia.
Check out this Toronto act called Tree Speak.
It is the brainchild of Josh Horner.
Releasing a two-track single back in late December.
Indie pop rock music similiar to Vancouver’s Peach Pit.
