Coasts: “Wash Away”

The fourth (and fifth) Coasts song I get to post on Knox Road? My am I lucky. More of the standard Coasts euphoria, which they’re somehow able to provide on every song they make. Not an easy feat, my friends!

Bonus:

The 4 song EP, with the title track above, is out via [...]

Brave Shores: “Dancing Underwater”

Start your weekend with this rollicking new jam from Jay and Stefanie McCarrol, the brother/sister duo Brave Shores, off their new EP out October 28.

Bonus:

New Letting Up Despite Great Faults: “Ride”

Since my last Letting Up Despite Great Faults post (you have to scroll down five seconds to find it), Neon is out, and we’ve got a brand new song, “Ride” to present off the album. The single has everything I’ve come to love about Letting Up, with relaxed vocals, a sunny vibe and [...]

Landlady

I guess I’m kind of behind the curve on this one, as Pitchfork just reviewed their album (with a dandy score in the sevens!), but Brooklyn’s Landlady deserves even more love. With free-flowing energy that has been severely lacking in so much of everything these days and a somehow tender abrasiveness, Landlady packs a [...]

[MP3] Fitness Club Fiasco: “Hades”

Fitness Club Fiasco, of Toronto, is back with new single “Hades,” which was actually inspired by the band’s experience watching loved ones battle cancer. The emotional highs and lows are on full display in this dynamic track. Driven by electro beats and lulling harmonies, “Hades” is a sufficiently lush tune.

Hades by Fitness [...]

Duplekita

Duplekita, the new project of Faunts co-founder Tim Batke out of Edmonton, makes some of my favorite kind of music. Expansive, electronic pop with sweet, hushed vocals and a building, layered melody. It’s a sound that can be listened to on repeat without a care in the world. I’ll put on my headphones, [...]

Phox: “1936”

I heard a song from Phox way back when, and then for some terrible reason I forgot about them. Probably reasons that befall all music bloggers. There are just too many bands to remember. Luckily, their label – Partisan Records – got in touch with a new song of theirs, “1936,” and it’s simply [...]

Miracle Fortress: “Here’s To Feeling Good All The Time”

One of the best parts of blogging again is getting reacquainted with bands I wrongly left off my radar when I was on hiatus. Miracle Fortress hasn’t really been a part of my life for a while, but with their new single “Here’s To Feeling Good All The Time,” I’m feeling some major regret. It [...]

Ivory Hours

Ivory Hours is led by brother-sister duo, Luke and Annie Roes. The Roes siblings devastatingly lost their brother a short time ago and decided to take their music together to new heights with a full four-piece band. The sweetness in these songs is underlined by a tinge of sadness, and expectedly so. The [...]

[MP3] Imperial Mammoth: “Little Earthquakes”

I gotta admit something. I couldn’t post anything the last few days not because I was busy, but because I could not find a single new artist or piece of music I wanted to post about. So thank god Imperial Mammoth came my way with some new songs off their upcoming album Gold [...]
