Craig Robertson – Late Mornings

Toronto singer/songwriter Craig Robertson has released a preview of his upcoming album Late Mornings in the form of a video for the track “Cheap Old Watch,” which we at Roots Music Canada are proud to premiere. The hauntingly beautiful clip, directed by Sean Ryan, captures the song’s moodiness brilliantly, with echoes of classic videos by R.E.M. and Bruce Springsteen.(Roots Music Canada)

Jim Bryson – Tired of Waiting

The six-song offering was written on a $100 guitar and recorded at Bryson’s own Fixed Hinge Studio with Jonas Bonnetta. It also features musical contributions from Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara, Scattered Cloud’s Philippe Charbonneau and Jamie Kronik.(Exclaim!)

Monster Truck – True Rockers

Two years have passed since the incredible Sittin’ Heavy was released and it’s been a busy period for the Monster Truck juggernaut. Touring with Deep Purple, Black Stone Chery, Jane’s Addiction, Alterbridge and playing Ramblin’ Man Fair, Download and Rock On The Range, to name a few, the band have been extremely busy so resorted to recording on the road.(R o c k ‘N’ L o a d)
