    ​​​​​​​Born Ruffians: Forget Me
    The popular Toronto indie-rockers preview an upcoming album with a new single that addresses the theme of morality. It has an early Bowie sound, while its video clip was co-directed by Leah and Pete of July Talk.
  • LeRiche album graphic
    LeRiche: Dreamers
    This hotly-tipped Newfoundland-based singer-songwriter made a mark with his recent single "Under Covers," and this track seems poised to follow suit. He possesses a gently melodic voice and the pop-rock tune is both mellow and quietly engaging.
  • Kardinal Offishall, Pree and Joey Montana
    Kardinal Offishall: Winner (feat. Celebrity Marauders, Joey Montana and Pree)
    The Canadian music pioneer launches his new creative collective, Celebrity Marauders, with a single that is an infectious and fresh blend of reggaeton and hip-hop stylings. We predict it'll live up to its title.
  • Polina Grace: Down
    A successful modelling career has enabled this Montreal pop songstress to launch a well-funded foray into music. The big-budget production on her debut EP and the slick video for its title cut seem poised to bring her serious attention.
  • Graphic for single
    Cadence Weapon: Large
    The highly-decorated rapper returns to the scene with a self-titled album that is coming in January. On this new single, he employs a sparsely effective electro track as a backdrop to bold declarations about his uniqueness.

    Ought: These Three Things
    The acclaimed Montreal post-punk combo has a third album coming in Feb. It is teased with this compelling cut that features insistent percussion and sardonic vocals. The accompanying video is spectacular.
  • Deep Dark Woods
    Deep Dark Woods: Deep Flooding Waters
    The Juno-nominated folk-rock band from Saskatoon has just released a sixth album, Yarrow. A sparse and mournful ballad inspired by an Alberta flood, this focus track captures the haunting vocals and poetic songs of leader Ryan Boldt.
  • Bahamas album cover
    Bahamas: No Wrong
    The popular mellow-voiced troubadour will release his next album, Earthtones, in January. The first cut to be premiered is this sweetly soulful piano ballad, one that is neatly embellished with female backing vocals.
  • Roveena
    Roveena: Fearless
    This Sri-Lankan born Toronto-based singer/songwriter has a powerhouse voice that is showcased on this title cut from her new EP. The song has a positive lyrical message that promotes self-confidence.

    The Elwins: ​​​​​​​Hey! Ya, You
    These indie pop-rockers from Toronto broke big in 2015, earning a Juno nomination and scoring a hit single with "So Down Low." This first single from the new album Beauty Community is another winner, matching affectionate lyrics and clever arrangements.
  • Frazey Ford
    Frazey Ford: When We Get By
    This reinterpretation of D’Angelo’s “When We Get By" is Ford's first single since her stand-up-for-yourself 2014 anthem “Done”, which has notched over one million YouTube views.
  • Kim Stockwood
    Kim Stockwood with Bill King: Sometimes The Moon
    The acclaimed singer/songwriter from Newfoundland makes a welcome return with a mini-album comprising fresh versions of some of her favourite songs. The poetic Ron Hynes-written title cut features her pure voice accompanied by King's fluent piano and poignant violin by Ben Mink.
  • The Kents  Photo: Brody White
    The Kents: Distant
    The highly-rated modern rock combo has just delivered a second EP, Within Waves. This guitar-driven focus track features passionate vocals, probing lyrics, crisp production and subtly shifting dynamics.
  • Mauno: Other Bad
    The imaginative pop combo from Halifax released its sophomore album Tuning on Friday. This focus cut is sparse, quirky and has a gentle charm.
  • Hey Ocean!
    Hey Ocean!: Amsterdam
    The BC popsters return after a long absence with a new album coming early next year. This advance track is a sweet pop confection featuring bright vocals, smart tempo shifts and crisp production.
  • The Pack A.D.
    The Pack A.D.: Dollhouse
    The fiery BC rock duo has a new album, Dollhouse, coming out on Friday, and an eye-catching video for the title track single is now available for viewing.
  • John K. Samson
    John K. Samson: Prayer For Ruby Elm (May We Grow Film Version)
    "Prayer For Ruby Elm" was included on Samson's well-received 2016 album Winter Wheat, but was written for the soundtrack of Erika MacPherson's independent film May We Grow, and it is this version that is now released.
  • Steph Cameron  Photo: Mark Maryanovich
    Steph Cameron: That’s What Love Is
    A highlight of her excellent sophomore album, this charming track showcases the folk singer/songwriter's pure voice, poetic lyrics, and fluent acoustic guitar playing.
  • Skydiggers  Photo: Heather Pollock
    Skydiggers: An Apology
    The roots-rock veterans remain a vital force, as is shown by this concise treat taken from their imminent ninth studio album, Warmth of the Sun. The emotionally eloquent vocals of Andy Maize are framed by ringing guitar and sweet harmonies.
