Mas Ysa, the creation of musician Thomas Arsenault, will be releasing his long awaited full-length debut, ‘Seraph’ on July 24 via MapleMusic Recordings..

Creating ‘Seraph’ took the better part of a year – it was crafted in Arsenault’s home studio, received additional production help from Steve Rivette (Liars, Black Dice) and was mixed by Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire).  ’Seraph’ isn’t electronic music only for the club or dance floor, it’s electronic music for the heart. “This is personal,” Arsenault says. And while Mas Ysa displays Arsenault’s unabashed love of electronic music, and ‘Seraph’ puts forward a collection of songs that have made their creator a hit on dance floors across the world, what Arsenault says is important isn’t just the beats. “To me,” he says, “the truth just sounds different.”

‘Look Up’ may seem familiar to those who spent time with last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Worth‘ EP: it’s chordal seeds were set in the short instrumental track ‘Yes‘.  In 2014, Mas Ysa took his rig on the road, touring the country with Delorean, EMA and Hundred Waters through appearances at a number of festivals both domestic and overseas. On the stages of SXSW, Primavera Sound, The Pitchfork Music Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Hopscotch, NOS Primavera Sound and Splendor In The Grass, ‘Look Up’ remained a live staple and fan favorite.

The River and The Road Join The MapleMusic Recordings Family With New Album ‘Headlights’ Out May 12

the River and the Road Diner

Pre-order ‘Headlights’ HERE

MapleMusic Recordings is proud to announce its latest signing, the Vancouver based folk rockers The River and The Road, who will be releasing their sophomore album ‘Headlights‘ on May 12, 2015.  Produced and mixed by Jamey Koch (The Tragically Hip, Ron Sexsmith), the album was recorded in both Vancouver and Toronto.

Headlights‘ is at times a bold step away from the acoustic songwriting that initially drove them, a change that can be likened to the evolution of their live performances. What has become clear is that The River and The Road is a band that defies definition and is willing to take chances.  The album hums with a mosaic of harmonies and has a fluidity that is reminiscent of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Ryan Adams.  From the dazzling complexity of their ballad ‘Coulee (The Prairie Song),’ to the foot stompin’, head noddin’ ‘Child With A Gun’, to their infectious ‘Strange Disease‘ – this is one addictive and enduring record.

Purchase ‘Falling Awake’ Via iTunes HERE

In their new video for ‘Falling Awake,’ the Kaiser Chiefs give viewers a first-hand look at what it is like to perform your heart out to an arena-sized crowd, sign autographs for fans, dance backstage or even pose with the ‘Christ the Redeemer’ statue in Rio de Janeiro.  The band’s friend Danny North filmed the video during their recent South American Stadium tour with the Foo Fighters and the band’s UK arena tour in January and February, including sold out shows at London’s O2 and First Direct Arena in Leeds.

‘Falling Awake’, now released as a digital single, was written during sessions for the band’s last album ‘Education, Education, Education & War,’ recorded at Sarm Studios in London on October 2014. Produced by Ben H. Allen III (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley).  In April, the band will return to North America for a headline tour with a run of Festival and outdoor shows planned for the summer.

Bop English – AKA White Denim’s James Petralli – Debuts New Single ‘Sentimental Wilderness’ Announces Spring Tour & Album Pre-order

Pre-Order ‘Constant Bop’ Via iTunes HERE

Today marks the release of ‘Sentimental Wilderness‘, the second single from Bop English, the recording name of White Denim frontman James Petralli. ‘Sentimental Wilderness’ picks up right where ‘Dani’s Blues (It Was Beyond Our Control)‘ leaves off, a rollicking track that features thoughtful guitar leads and melodic synths that fit seamlessly over a soundscape that is very much timelessly rock & roll-oriented. Bop English also made the pre-order for their highly anticipated debut album ‘Constant Bop‘ (due out April 14th via Downtown Records and Fontana North) live today and announced the dates for their first North American tour.

The ten tracks James decided on for the record demonstrate an encyclopedic knowledge of songwriting, revisiting everything from Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne to LL Cool J and Santana for inspiration. Despite the fact that Constant Bop is full of disparate influences, under the spell of James Petralli it all makes for an incredibly coherent album. It’s a rich and diverse record that’s teeming with pop classicism and zippy rock ‘n’ roll. There are layers upon layers to explore on Constant Bop, with a serious attention to detail being applied to every track. Scrupulous and ever diligent, there’s a ton to unwrap on ‘Constant Bop,’ a record that jumps from vocoder use on a ’60s-jazz influenced jam to sampled 808-kicks on country numbers. It’s all there, and it’s all distinctly James Petralli.

JUNO-Nominated Singer-Songwriter Peter Katz Announces March 31 Release For ‘We Are The Reckoning’

PK_8490 

“If you want to make something that’s like nothing you’ve made before, then you have to shake yourself up, go beyond what’s comfortable and known and let yourself feel disoriented, overwhelmed, even intimidated.  Those moments, where you lose your bearings, where you’re forced to sink or swim, are the moments where you have an opportunity to rise to the occasion, to surprise yourself, to do the things you didn’t know you could do. That’s what making this album was for me, I’m so proud of the process, and I’m so proud of the result.”Peter Katz

JUNO nominated singer-songwriter Peter Katz, who recently signed a label deal with Maple Music Recordings/Fontana North, announced today the March 31 release of his brand new album “We Are The Reckoning”.  Katz announced the release in addition to the premiere of the albums lead single and video “Brother”.  Featuring long-time friend and multi-talented Canadian artist Royal Wood, the track is a heartfelt, uplifting tribute to relationships built and bonds forged.  “We Are The Reckoning” is available now to pre-order on iTunes with an instant download of the single “Brother” (ft. Royal Wood).

Pre-Order ‘Sound & Color’ Via iTunes HERE

Sound & Color – the follow-up to Alabama Shakes‘ Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girls, which earned the group three GRAMMY® nominations, including a nod for Best New Artist – will be released on April 21 by ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

Sound & Color demonstrates the tremendous strides made by Alabama Shakes since the release of 2012′s Boys & Girls. From the gently swaying, chiming title song to the garage-rock freak-out on “The Greatest” to the psychedelic space jam “Gemini,” Alabama Shakes build on the soulful blues-rock base and map a surprising, innovative new direction.

“We took our time to write this record, and I’m really glad we did,” says lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard. “We were able to sit down and think about what’s exciting to us. This record is full of genre-bending songs.”

Sound & Color was recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium studio. The band co-produced the album with Blake Mills - a young guitar wizard who has helmed sessions by Sara Watkins and Sky Ferreira, and played alongside everyone from Norah Jones and The Dixie Chicks to Lana Del Ray and Kid Rock.
