Track of the Day

Euphoria.  That’s the word that keeps coming to mind with each new song released in advance of Broken Social Scene’s comeback record Hug of Thunder, set to drop on July 7th.  We heard it on “Halfway Home”, which sounded like a “we are back” statement with layered vocals in the chorus and its twin guitar assault. […]

Other track reviews: Depeche Mode “Where’s The Revolution” (2017)  //  Brand New “I Am A Nightmare” (2016)  //  Ariana Grande “Into You” (2016)  //  Radiohead “Burn The Witch” (2016) Lorde – “Green Light” (2017) Lorde is back, and she is following up on a four year wait with one of her most triumphant-sounding tracks yet – the […]

Artist: Depeche Mode // Release Date: 2/3/2017 Disclaimer: I’m no Depeche Mode expert.  My experience with them is pretty much limited to the famed Violator, as well as a few singles here and there.  That didn’t stop the band’s latest single, “Where’s The Revolution”, from capturing my interest immediately though.  It’s tough not to notice when […]

If you keep up with sultry, emotive, French-Canadian singer songwriters, then surely you grabbed Big Boy, the debut EP from Montreal’s Charlotte Cardin, back in July when it came out.  I’m sure that adding her to our humble database just, like, slipped your mind — so busy, right!!  Such a busy time right now (and also since […]

Brand New: I Am a Nightmare Seven years.  That’s how long it has been since Brand New has released a full length LP, and diehard fans are starting to lose patience with the band’s constant game of cat and mouse, teasing us with a single here or there before completely falling off the face of the […]

  Ariana Grande: Into You Ariana Grande seems to be heating up just in time for summer.  Everything she’s done leading up to the May 20th release of her third full-length LP, Dangerous Woman, sounds sleeker, bolder, and sexier than anything she has released to this point.  It feels like a natural evolution for the pop […]

Radiohead: Burn The Witch It’s not just any band that can drop a single and immediately earn a shout out from Time Magazine. Radiohead is one of the largest cultural phenomena in modern music. They’re as much generational icons as they are musicians, and much in the same way that music used to be able […]

Friday, April 29, 2016 Artist: White Denim Track: “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” This will certainly be the last time I post a song that is usually associated with legendary saxophonist and noted punchline Kenny Rogers (who didn’t write it – that would be country-pop songwriter/trivia question Mickey Newbury), but “Just Dropped […]

Monday, April 25th, 2016 Artist: Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties Track: “Green Like the G Train, Green Like Sea Foam” We’re still nearly a month away from the official release of Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties’ Bittersweet, and yet we’ve already received an adrenaline boost with the passionate bookends of the three-song EP. […]

Friday, April 22, 2016 Artist: Kevin Morby Track: “Dorothy” Kevin Morby’s latest solo offering, Singing Saw, has been described as “written simply and realized orchestrally.” This statement makes perfect sense within the context of the album – none of the songs feel overly complex in nature, but the delicate addition of instruments like horns and […]

Friday, April 15th, 2016 Artist: All Human (facebook) (twitter) (bandcamp) Track: “And So Peter Dances” I should be less surprised that All Human’s sophomore release has consistently been one of my favorite releases of 2016. Though Teenagers, You Don’t Have to Die! is my first exposure to the brainchild of Adam Fisher (Fear Before, Orbs) and Brian Ferrara (Trophy […]
