New Track: "She's a Gun" - Godcaster

“She’s a Gun,” the new single from Godcaster, plants itself in a funky-glam space. The ticking of keys creates an anticipatory feel. However, it sits back in a groove, momentarily lapsing in a chase before falling back into its casual surroundings; then gets wild again. It has an eccentric, experimental aesthetic, meshing the strange with a shake-your-hips sentiment. Within a single lyrical line, a lot of territory is traversed.


"Too Young To Go Steady" - Shoegaze track "Genevieve" featured on Kim's Convenience Season 3!

Too Young To Go Steady are a five piece dream pop band here in Toronto. They released their debut EP “Dropout” last summer. This album is full of shoegaze and reverby pop goodness. Very atmospheric. There is a peaceful calmness to their songs. A couple tracks from this EP are going to be featured in episodes of the upcoming season 3 of Kim’s Convenience on CBC. One of the featured tracks is “Genevieve”. The video is directed by band member Carlos Coronado and contains footage from Toronto, Vancouver Island and the Yukon. Too Young to Go Steady play live at Junction City Music Hall on February 9th with Bredren, Runnymede and more. – Kris Gies

Cloud Tapes find respite on "Coast Is Clear," play Alphaville 2.3

New York’s Cloud Tapes describe themselves as “Daniel DeVito in the form of song," which pretty much tells you everything you need to know about their easy-going, occassionally abstract alternative rock. Their newest single, “Coast Is Clear!” is a Fender-heavy joyride, rife with paranoid dream visions of “abandoned coast [where] we were searching for the holy ghost” and “king and jesters… changing places,” wrapped up by a chorus in which frontman John Samaras states “we face the same old problems, day in, day out.” It’s hard to suss out the specificity of Cloud Tapes’ worries on “Coast,” but their melodic, carefree guitar work, against Samaras’ ‘whatever works’ lyricism evokes a philosophy of rolling with the punches and not sweating the small stuff, providing a much needed respite to listeners from the mounting anxieties of daily life.

Cloud Tapes will jam at Alphaville on February 3rd, supporting Tiger Oil, Vinnie Neuberg, and Seldomo. Until then, let your hair down and stream “Coast Is Clear!” below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)


New Church Girls EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Cycles, the new EP from Church Girls, was recently released via Chatterbot Records. Instrumentally spring-loaded personal narratives travel through the details, finding a balance between the composed, melodic pacing and the spirited bursts. There’s a momentous self-evaluating clarity that blends with abrasive undertones, expelling energy. Church Girls are currently on an extensive national tour, and you can catch them next in Philly on Saturday, March 9 at Johnny Brenda's, with Blushed and Field Mouse.

New Skirt Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Reinstate the Guillotine is the second album from heavy-psych power trio Skirt. Chock full of riffs, the band delivers songs that surge and sear in a ragged, rippin' fashion. Oozing with an unrelenting intensity, there’s an immediacy to the messages, which leave a lasting impact. It's heavy not merely in its sound, but also in the themes it explores.
