Entre ce que j’dis… de Maggie Savoie

Maggie Savoie, revient en force avec un nouvel album, Appalaches. Le premier extrait « Entre ce que j’dis... » apporte l’auditeur sur la route de l’autodérision. La marge est souvent grande entre ce que l’on veut et ce que l’on peut ou ce que l’on dit et ce que l’on fait. Ce thème universel est exploré par l’artiste, dans une ambiance pas mal « chill » où le jeu de guitare unique de Maggie Savoie est bien présent en toute simplicité. +++ info >

Wicked Vices release new summer single

The first single off their upcoming full length aptly titled ‘Liquor’ was recorded in Fredericton at Shiftwork Studios which is a perfect rock bop for the last hurrah of summer.

The song eventually kicks into a higher tempo 90's alternative rock song for the chorus complete with bongos, a perfectly timed guitar solo and lyrics that perfectly sum up summer spent at the beach with your friends. +++ info >

David Myles' That Tall Distance

That Tall Distance shakes off the chains of lyricism in favour of expansive, world-building instrumental arrangements, exploring a universe of shimmering soul, magic jazz, streetwise funk, and earthy blues. "You have to understand, I grew up obsessed with jazz, playing trumpet in high school stage band, and the works,” said David Myles (he/him). “I love instrumental music, and I love the sound of a bigger sized band making it happen, together. I’m talking about Duke Ellington, Count Basie, the big band recordings of Quincy Jones." +++ info >

Sunnyside Uppers release "Mary" single and video

The Sunnyside Uppers are back with a classic tale of love and longing. "Mary" is the collective's biggest, brightest, hookiest track to date and the video is certainly their most strange. Drawing on 60’s pop, 90’s alternative and 00’s indie rock for inspiration, it’s a 3.5 minute slice of heartache doused in sunshine. But don’t take our word for it.

Bands (Money)

With his latest video (visualizer) for “Bands (Money)”, the Nigeria born Fredericton based rapper JTK makes use of a punchy and moody production for his lethargic flow and vivid lyrics that center around being a go-getter amongst other things.
