Adrian Underhill – CU Again

Produced by famed Brit producer Adam Bainbridge, aka Kindness (Robyn, Solange, Blood Orange), the LP is available to pre-order now at this location. A video for the title track recently premiered on The 405. Says Underhill, “I created this video with two of my friends from film school, both accomplished filmmakers, Evan Crowe and Tony Massil. I knew I wanted it to be a very simple concept and I think there’s something intrinsically meaningful about seeing a songwriter sing their own song.” Watch the video below.(Bucket List)

Carmanah – Speak in Rhythms

Victoria based Carmanah is set to release their debut album Speak in Rhythms, but you can hear it exclusively here on Live in Limbo first. The band fuses blues with folk tendencies in an intoxicating fashion.(Live in Limbo)

Cecil Frena – The Gridlock

Good Lovelies – Shapeshifters

Listening to Toronto’s Good Lovelies, you can’t help, but feel all the things; joy for love, heartbreak for loss, excitement for life. It’s important to note, too, that these aren’t the expressions of anyone, but Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks themselves. They share their experiences to connect with the listener in a way that many artists are missing these days. It’s that realness that not only makes you want to put them on repeat but also sit down with them for a coffee. Take some time out of your busy day to check out the video for their single, “When We Were Young” below.(Canadian Beats)

Holly Cole – Holly

One musical mystery that audiophiles and serious music fans of all stripes can relate to is why singer Holly Cole did not/has not become a bigger star. Her voice is expressive in the extreme. She has taste in material that is both adventurous and impeccable. Her records have always been very well-recorded. And she’s a charismatic live performer. (Stereophile)

Oh Geronimo – Mountains

The Olympic Symphonium – Beauty In The Tension

Having four distinctive songwriters in a band sounds like something that could easily go awry after a few years. But after counting 13 years as a band, current bandmates Nick Cobham, Kyle Cunjak, Dennis Goodwin and Graeme Walker are tighter than ever, creating space for each other as the Olympic Symphonium. And on the Fredericton folk-pop quartet’s new album, Beauty in the Tension, the nod to that equilibrium is right in the title.(CBC Music)
