This month, our five essentials playlist balances indie rock with the new school of electro-R&B.
We will shine a light on Hamilton's Jessy Lanza and her excellent new record Oh No, followed by a taste of bubblegum garage pop compliments of Vancouver's Supermoon, who have just released their debut album Playland.
We'll also talk about River Tiber, one of Toronto's most exciting artists at the forefront of the recent R&B/electronic renaissance. Did we mention he appears on a Drake album?
Also, we'll chat with Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade (also Handsome Furs, Divine Fits, and Operators) about the big reunion, writing new music and having to re-learn songs from Apologies to the Queen Mary from old YouTube videos. We've also included a brand-new track from them in the playlist.
Finally, we invite you to log in to your old Myspace page and whip out your best emo haircut: we're going back to 2006 with a little Toyko Police Club.
Thanks for your continued support dear listeners, your feedback has meant the world!
