Today's New Track

  • Command Sisters Photo: Merik Williams
    Command Sisters: Low Profile
    The sibling duo moves away from country roots and into sophisticated modern pop on this debut single. Strong harmonies, glossy production and a grabby hook make it a real contender.

    Leonard Cohen: Leaving The Table
    Some of Cohen's albums over the last decades were marred by synthetic keyboard sounds, but thankfully they are lacking here. The sparse instrumentation here is nicely empathetic, especially the pedal steel guitar.
  • Metz
    Metz: Mess Of Wires
    The first cut off their impending third album confirms that the Toronto trio has as gloriously intense a sound as ever. Chanted vocals, savage guitar riffs and pummelling percussion are employed to riveting effect.
  • Sunday Wilde & Reno Jack
    Sunday Wilde & Reno Jack: Howling For My Darling
    The prolific Ontario roots duo has come up with another winner in their new album, Two. This fresh take on a Howling Wolf classic showcases Wilde's bluesy vocals and is a short, sweet and raunchy treat.
  • Ivory Hours
    Ivory Hours: Shadow Kids
    The Toronto modern rock trio is making waves with this single. It features layered vocals and enough musical ebb and flow to keep things interesting, while delivering a message of female empowerment.
  • Partner
    Partner: Ambassador To Ecstasy
    Rapidly making waves with their fiery yet melodic rock sound, the East Coast duo has just released a debut album. Sloan's Jay Ferguson calls this new single a masterclass in writing a hit rock song and we agree.
  • Matt Mays
    Matt Mays: Sentimental Sins
    It has been five long years between albums for the Maritimes rock hero, but this advance cut from his upcoming sixth album shows he hasn't missed a step. Virile vocals and guitar work complement the smart production on this heat-seeker track that builds in intensity.
  • Mo Kenney
    Mo Kenney: Maybe I Am
    The imminent third album from the feisty Nova Scotian rocker is described as a breakup record. This advance cut showcases her signature emotional honesty, passionate vocals and winning way with a hook.
  • Downchild
    Downchild Blues Band: Mississippi Woman, Mississauga Man
    Sporting an amusing title, this is the first single from a new album by the much-loved blues survivors and these lads will have audiences jumping at the juke joint in the time it takes to pull a beer-can tab.
  • Danielle Bourjeaurd
    Danielle Bourjeaurd: Lakeside
    The Nashville-based country contender first made a splash by co-writing Tom Cochrane's hit single "Sunday Afternoon Hang." This teaser track in advance of her debut EP celebrates beach culture and has a similar carefree party vibe, redolent of coolers and Coppertone.
  • The Wilderness of Manitoba
    The Wilderness Of Manitoba: Head For The Hills
    The brainchild of singer/songwriter Will Whitwham, this combo now produces a sophisticated rock sound reminiscent of something you'd hear on '70s FM radio. The first single from an imminent fifth album puts a melodic spin on an intense lyrical theme.
  • The Weather Station
    The Weather Station: Thirty
    The first single from the folk-rock songstress' upcoming fourth album is a vivid encapsulation of her vibrant talent. Poetically precise lyrics are delivered with a pure voice and complemented by a minimal but effective video clip.
  • James Blonde
    James Blonde: Don't Lock The Door
    Pure pop with honeyed harmony vocals and a gold fingered production augur well for this Niagara Falls trio that's just released its first album and is set to play up a storm on tour.
  • Biblical in concert: Photo: Rockphoto.ca
    Biblical: Fugue State
    On the second single from their upcoming sophomore album, the highly rated Toronto hard rock outfit gets decidedly trippier until the searing guitar solo kicks in.
  • Terra Lightfoot Photo: Dustin Rabin
    Terra Lightfoot: Paradise
    The ever-gigging singer and guitarslinger delivers a new cut that showcases her powerhouse voice and solid riffing.
  • Camille Delean
    Camille Delean: Timberline Rover
    Now based in Montreal, this roving folk-accented songstress releases her full-length debut on Friday. This gently mesmerising advance track showcases a pure voice and imaginative arrangements.
  • Belle Game
    Belle Game: Low
    The single is taken from the band's upcoming album, executive-produced by Kevin Drew, and it's an adventurous, compelling soundscape that will hopefully build on a solid base of previous cred from a newstand of media enthusiasts.
  • Nice Horse Photo: Matt Barnes
    Nice Horse: Pony Up
    This all-female country quartet has been dubbed "the Spice Girls on a whiskey bender." Their new single has an infectious party vibe, boosted by massed vocals and feisty banjo and guitar licks,
  • Tim Moxam & Liz Stringer
    Tim Moxam & Liz Stringer: Leave It Behind
    After touring Australia together, these two singer/songwriters and labelmates recorded this joint single. Tight harmonies and a jaunty melody neatly complement lyrics extolling the virtues of starting over.
  • The Royal Foundry
    The Royal Foundry: All We Have
    The group's two married principals have moved from acoustic folk to a wide-screen modern rock sound featuring interwoven vocals and lush production. This anthemic track has real commercial potential.
