Mark Grundy of Heaven for Real‘s other project Quaker Parents dropped the album “Our Drawing Club” on May 10, 2019.
It is a mix of guitar minimal pop and experimental arty electro-glitchy music.
As the title suggest is like a messy drawing artwork.
A scribble there, an abstract there, and a masterpiece there.
Vocal wise reminds me of a mix between Shotgun Jimmie and John K. Samson (*gasp*)
- Improbable Friendship 1999
- Never That Baked In
- One Time Luv
- No Travel
- A Better Part
This is a totally out there album!
A band who I seem to keep missing out.
Today, Dwayne Gretzy shared the video for their lead single of the ABBA cover, “S.O.S.”
Their reimagining of the classic song by ABBA is taken from their self-titled debut album dropping on August 23, 2019.
I think it is abit sacrilegious to cover a band who makes people smile and enjoy their music.
They own spin is not the disco-pop we are thinking but more a catchy indie pop alternative tune.
Check out the video.
The Noolands is a band from Barrie, Ontario.
Their new single ‘Grenadine’ is inspired by the people you always want by your side, in good times and bad.
Facing the dark things in life is tough enough without something sweet to wash it down.
Fans will feel the energy from this track at live performances when everyone is screaming the words and stomping on the ground together.
The bouncy grooves, eerie chords and rocking energy are all flavours that blend together to make Grenadine the sweetest track to kick off the summer of 2019.
It is one of those songs you want to play on a nice sunny day while sitting on the porch, drinking a mixed drink with Grenadine.
Have a listen to the song:
While the current status for Heaven for Real is uncertain.
Mark Grundy‘s other project Quaker Parents just dropped the music video for One Time Luv.
The tracks is taken from the upcoming album Our Drawing Club which drops on May 10, 2019.
This is more of a lo-fi experimental pop glitchy kind of music than compared to guitar pop rock of Heaven For Real.

Toronto’s Black Lion released their track Miles Away on April 12, 2019
Featuring the soulful voice of Janel Sherise, song is reminisced to old school rap and hip-hop music.
The track is about consciousness, reflection and representing the “woke”, enlightened, socially and politically aware voice of the people, who are becoming increasingly aware and concerned with the general state of the world, the lyrics and vibe of Miles Away capture these emotions based on the experiences of the Lindo brothers. .
Have a listen.

Today, Toronto’s Blankscreen dropped the music video for Garden Fire.
Directed by Jordan Lee-Tung, here is what he says about the video:
“I once heard every face inna dream is a real one– even when you can’t place it. Here we depict a hazy memory as a series of joints; enough of an image to get the gist, but an inaccurate portrayal of the limb.”

Pup who is becoming Canada’s Punk Rock saviours dropped their second album Morbid Stuff.
Filled with intense octane punk rocking music with easy sing along lyrics.

Last week or so, Charlotte Cornfield dropped the music video for Andrew.
It is taken from the upcoming album The Shape of Your Name which comes out on April 5, 2019 via Man Next Door Records.
About the song:
Cornfield says “Andrew” could be “a song to a friend or a romantic partner but at its core it’s note to self, a reminder to step back and look at the bigger picture instead of dwelling on the minutia. We all have friends who we want to shake sometimes because their priorities feel out of whack, but on the flip side of that sometimes we’re that friend who needs shaking. When things get messy and absurd it helps be able to laugh at yourself, to laugh with someone, to shake it off and move forward.”
