Paper Lions – My Number

The east coast is alive with vibrant musicians and producers lately. Paper Lions are a band from PEI that are no exception to this surge of beautiful sounds – drawing influence from such pop heavy-hitters as Tokyo Police Club, etc. the 4-piece indie rock / indietronica group create sounds that are perfect summertime soundtracks.

Intricately layered instrumentation and well-thought lyricism place this group directly at the top of the food-chain as they eat up the Canadian club circuit on their upcoming tour in support of this single and their forthcoming full-length album, Full Colour, set to be released in 2016.

The future bodes well for this young crew, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in the coming months.

Upcoming Cross Canada Album Release Tour:

Sep 30 – Charlottetown – Delta Convention Center (1800 cap)
Oct 11 – London – London Music Hall
Oct 12 – Ottawa – Zaphods
Oct 13 – Montreal – Belmont
Oct 15 – Toronto – Mod Club
Nov 25 – Victoria – Luckys
Nov 26 – Vancouver – Biltmore

Hayden Stewart, aka Gill Bondy of Toronto’s Bedroomer collective has been releasing pop melodies in the vein of inspirational heavyweights Washed Out, Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti, etc.

Coming in hot just yesterday, the young singer/songwriter has blessed us with a pop ballad that is sure to catch the eye of both producers and listeners alike.

Always chasing that summertime vibe, the song reminds us that better weather and good times are just around the corner (the weather is shit in this corner of the world, currently). Great song. Full support.

Hozier – Take Me to Church (The Golden Pony Remix)

I’ve been on somewhat of an upbeat-house kick lately; maybe it’s just that energetic sort of pick me up that helps get me through the bitter end of winter – but this song is just obviously pretty damn good.

The Golden Pony are one of those rare production duos that can do no wrong. Checking out their vast array of tasteful pop bootlegging, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had actually re-done a few of my favourite artists, namely Chet Faker.

Check out their newest remix of Hozier – Take me to Church!

If you dug their newest, check out this throwback from a month or so back:
