Lucero Debut Big Star Cover ‘I’m In Love With A Girl’

Pre-Order ‘All A Man Should Do’ Via iTunes HERE

Lucero is set to release their new album ‘All A Man Should Do‘ on September 18 via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

This new album contains some of the most resonant lyrics Ben Nichols has ever written. They read like chapters from his life: the duality of relationships, getting older, finding where you want to be in this world and more. ”I was 15 years old in 1989,” Nichols explained. “This record sounds like the record I wanted to make when I was 15. It just took 25 years of mistakes to get it done.”

Lucero have included a cover close to their heartstrings on the new record: Big Star‘s ‘I’m In Love With A Girl’ and it features Big Star drummer Jody Stephens.  Working with producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Flogging Molly) for a third time at Memphis’s Ardent Studios, the band felt comfortable enough to take some chances with a palette of new tones that sound understated yet powerful, bringing life to the stories behind the lyrics without overshadowing them.

Listen To ‘Tropicoller Lease’ Via Spotify and Rdio

Sun Club‘s debut LP titled ‘The Dongo Durango‘ joyously deconstructs the traditional pop song and rebuilds it with off-kilter time signatures, gleefully unhinged vocals, and sunny hooks that sink deep into your already fevered brain. The record will be out October 30 via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

The members of Sun Club became a band as childhood friends over ten years ago and with the release of a well-received 7″ and EP have toured endlessly ever since, moving from basement gigs to bars to opening up shows for the likes of AlvvaysFIDLAR, and Fat White Family.

Rhett Miller Reveals New Video For ‘Most In The Summertime’

RHETT_MILLER_COVER_rgb

Listen To The Track ‘Most In The Summertime’ HERE

Rhett Miller has been playing in touring bands (most notably Old 97′s) for the better part of 20 years, aka traveling from town to town for an entire generation. Thus he has definitely earned the right to title his latest solo album ‘The Traveler,’ which is out now.

A standout track from the album is ‘Most In The Summertime.’ A warm, bouncy song on the surface that has a darker undertone too. The song’s new video (directed by Max Nichols) has the same tones. Although ‘The Traveler’ was written and performed by Miller he also had some help, most notably by the members of Black Prairie, a band based in Portland that plays everything from bluegrass to klezmer to country and shares members with the Decemberists. Peter Buck of REM also added additional guitar work.

Mas Ysa Shares New Track ‘Arrows’

Pre-Order ‘Seraph’ Via iTunes HERE

Today, Mas Ysa shares a new track ‘Arrows,’ an emotional club-banger from his upcoming debut album ‘Seraph,’ out July 24 on MapleMusic Recordings.

Mas Ysa, otherwise known as Thomas Arsenault, says of the track: “‘Arrows’ is sort of a Euro club banger, but also a very personal love song. It comes out of me wanting to make a universal, club-ready track but unwittingly giving into emotion.”

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 (Björk, Arcade Fire) – but the topics it covers have been haunting the musician for his entire life. “Thematically, there’s a lot of Catholic guilt and shame,” he says of the album, which is named for a kind of angel.  “I don’t set out to use specific sounds, but looking later at the pallet of choirs, clapping, castanets, flutes – I’ve realized that they are just comforting to me. I think that comes from going to church and coming from very large and close Ecuadorian and French-Canadian families. I don’t actively reference any culture’s sound or instruments, when I noticed later they were all over the place.”

Tagged with , ,

On July 10 MapleMusic Recordings artist Taylor Knox and Cameron House Records artist Sam Cash & The Romantic Dogs will be co-headling a show at The Drake. Full Event info is HERE

This past March, Toronto native Taylor Knox released his debut solo EP, ‘Lines‘ – with six short tracks that showcase Knox’s irresistible melodic gifts. From opening tune ‘My Backyard‘ to meditative closer ‘Good Enough,’ Knox displays song-writing prowess far beyond his years. Although still in his 20s, he has a wealth of experience playing with a host of Canada’s most acclaimed artists, including Owen Pallett, Rich Aucoin, Luke Doucet, Hayden, and Jason Collett. Taylor Knox is now ready to step out on his own for good as a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer.

After releasing their debut effort ‘Stand Together, Fall Together‘ on Cameron House Records in late 2013, Sam Cash & The Romantic Dogs have seen their profile steadily climb with festival appearances at TURF and Hillside-among others-as well as tours with July Talk, The Strumbellas, The Arkells, and Lights. Currently, Cash has been hard at work in the studio completing his follow up album. Produced by Ian Blurton, the album will surely help Sam along in becoming a household name in Canadian Rock’n'Roll circles.

Produced by Cone McCaslin, whose credits also include The Strumbellas and Operation MD, and mixed by Gus Van Go and Werner F, the eight songs that made up Northern Lies caught the attention of media across the country.  Beatroute Magazine said: ““There are equal parts of previous decades here while vocally some more recent acts come to mind. Nowhere is this more apparent on “New York City Blues” which showcases everything Sun K is capable of. While the members of the band are relatively young, they must have access to good record collections. In a niche fraught with fraudsters, they come across honestly.”  While Toronto Star’s Chris Young said, “…off a couple listens there’s much to like, including Kristian Montano’s husky baritone, the organ swirls of Stuart Retallack, and the band’s sure touch and dynamics on Montano’s carefully constructed songs that go from pensive to rousing and recall Lou Reed, Joel Plaskett and the Gaslight Anthem.”

Sun K’s line-up features a sonically dynamic group of guys, including front man Kristian Montano, keyboardist Stuart Retallack who also plays horns, guitarist and fiddler Kevin Michael Butler, bassist JuHang Sin and a new addition to the group is drummer Scott Tiller.

Be sure to catch them this summer!

“The band bring together a gritty blend of rock, blues and folk, led by vocalist Kristian Montano. Going for a vocal delivery in the vein of Julian Casablancas and Lou Reed, he pairs his singing chops with a guitar sound “honed directly through the Neil Young songbook.”” - EXCLAIM

“Even though this is only a debut album, you’ll want to keep your eye on this band for more because they’re surely going places.” CANADIAN BEATS

“Sun K may be just the next big rock act to emerge out of Toronto, and if Northern Lies proves anything, it’s that sometimes, in order to keep moving forward, we need to look back for inspiration.” HEAVY PRESS
