I Spell It Nature: North

If you want to hear something glorious, romantic and triumphant, you would do no wrong in checking these guys out.


Prawn: Settled EP

The Settled EP is a great end-of-the-year delicacy and all the more reason to love Prawn.

Pharaoh: Negative Everything

If you love Black Sabbath, you won’t be able to get enough of Pharaoh.


Little Cinema: Adventure

For a copycat act, Little Cinema aren’t bad. Not outstandingly great, but not bad, either.


Heidemann: Orphan EP

Orphan is a great stab of the nightlife of the past.


Kellylee Evans: I Remember When

Kellylee Evans delivers a diverse, eclectic album with I Remember When.

Emmas Ringer: Generations

For an indie album from a "boring" Canadian city, this is professionally recorded, immensely entertaining and full of hooky songs.

Astrakhan: A Tapestry of Scabs and Skin EP

Astrakhan is a band you’d better pay attention to, because they’re kicking down doors, taking names, and making some absolutely furious and fuzzy rock.


Meligrove Band: Bones of Things

Bones of Things is a great platter and a welcome addition to an already storied career.


Tommy Kruise: Fête Foreign EP

You'll best appreciate this when you’re just concentrating on the music and the beats from this Montreal DJ, rather than his sexist lyrics.


Institute: Salt EP

Salt burns fast but fiercely, leaving its carbon traces smeared on everything it touches.


Garotas Suecas: Feras Míticas

Acid jazz was there before, but now it takes over.

Native America: Grown Up Wrong

Despite declarations of laziness, Native America’s Grown Up Wrong is an easy success.


Chumped: Teenage Retirement

This is an LP to bounce along to, whether it’s in your car or in your bedroom.


As Blood Runs Black: Ground Zero

Basically, Ground Zero is a kind of mindless metal album.


Sick / Tired: Dissolution

This album is better for chasing away bad colds than chicken noodle soup.

Bart: Bart By Bart EP

If you like ‘70s music with the hint of a modern edge, Bart By Bart will more than fit the bill.


Roly Platt: Inside Out

Have you ever wanted to hear “Over the Rainbow” played on a blues harmonica? Well, here’s your chance!


Billy Sharff: This Side of Town

An independent artist looking for ears. You'd do well to lend him yours for a listen.


Open Sails: Open Sails

Calgary, Alberta’s Open Sails is essentially an Evanescence clone, but a pretty good clone at that.
