    Dan Mangan: Fool For Waiting
    The art-rock auteur returns to a simpler sound on this new single. The combination of minimal piano and his deep resonant voice is perfectly suited to an openly sentimental ballad that may just become a wedding song fave.
  • Allan Rayman: Word Of Mouth
    Fresh off his Juno nomination as Breakthrough Artist of the Year, the Toronto-based singer/songwriter premieres a video for his latest cut. The song is a fresh and tasty hybrid of R&B and rock sounds paired with Rayman's gritty and grunge-inflected vocals.
  • Port Cities: Idea Of You
    The Nova Scotian roots trio marks the anniversary of a much-praised debut album with a new recording of a song that's been a live favourite. The pure vocals of Breagh Mackinnon and gently lustful lyrics make it a bona fide charmer. ,
  • Rochester: Balance
    The highly-touted rapper is off to a flying start with this new cut, racking up impressive streaming numbers. He delivers thoughtful lines with authority, while subtly inventive production lends a soothing ambience.
  • Kayla Diamond: What You're Made Of
    The Toronto pop artist follows up her breakthrough hit Carnival Hearts with another tasty confection that embeds a positive message in an infectious melody.
  • Elaquent: Celebrate Life!
    The prolific producer/beatmaker is internationally recognised for his inventive brand of instrumental hip-hop. This title cut from an imminent EP has a gently mesmerising and positive vibe befitting its title.
  • Ascot Royals: Evil I Know
    This cut from the new EP New Skin is rapidly making a mark on radio. It is easy to hear why, as it is a textbook example of how to give a three-minute rock song real dynamism. There is perceptive social commentary at work here too.

    The LYNNeS: Recipe For Disaster
    Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson are acclaimed and prolific solo roots music artists. Now joining forces as a duo, they have just released an impressive debut album. This single features fluent vocal harmonies, a catchy melody, and a charming video. Call it a recipe for success.
  • Sly & Robbie Meet Dubmatix: Dictionary
    Juno-winning producer/composer Jesse King collaborates with the famed Jamaican reggae rhythm section on a new album, Overdubbed. This cut captures the bass-heavy essence of the dub form, but is fleshed out in appealingly inventive fashion.

    Good Lovelies: I See Gold
    The pure vocals of the popular trio are the driving force of this gentle charmer, one projecting a sweet optimism. It is the first single from their soon to be released sixth album, Shapeshifters.

    A winner in the inaugural Allan Slaight Juno Master Class, this Newfoundland folk duo further confirms its real potential with this surging track that features crisp and pure harmonies and polished production. A second album is coming May 25.
  • Frigs: II
    Based on this propulsive new track, the Toronto post-punk quartet will justify the advance hype for an imminent full-length debut. It is dirty and invigorating, a mud bath for the ears.
  • Partner: Everybody Knows
    The new single from the Windsor duo's raved about debut album features playful lyrics and righteously ringing guitar and is as refreshing as a dip in an icy lake. They're spreading the gospel with international touring.

    Grand Analog: Mutations ft. Posdnuos
    The distinctive rhyming flow of an American rap pioneer perfectly suits this new cut from a veteran Canadian crew. The results caress the ear and reaffirm the pleasures of conscious hip-hop.
  • Ian Janes: Can't Remember Never Loving You
    The East Coast songsmith delivers a genuinely moving country ballad that celebrates the virtues of fidelity. Could this become a fave future wedding song? A cover by two stars from Nashville, the TV series, has already given it valuable exposure.
  • James Bryan: Back In Those Loving Arms - feat. Divine Brown
    Philosopher Kings and Prozzak member Bryan has just released a second solo album, By Your Side. The featured vocals of Divine Brown help make this cut a gently soulful charmer to ward off the winter blues.

  • The Avulsions: The End
    This post-punk combo from Saskatoon recently announced signing a deal with Calgary-based label Flemish Eye. This dark yet bracing debut single features crunching guitars, jackhammer percussion, and the icy vocals of lyricist Samantha Renner.
