New Release: Penguin Prison ‘Lost In New York’


Penguin Prison‘s dance-party-jam-packed sophomore album Lost In New York is available today! Lead single ‘Try To Lose’ was described by Kick Kick Snare as ”the effortlessly smooth track is the perfect jump start to spring. The perfect balance of crisp wintery melancholic lyrics and a bright infectious sounds saturated by his now signature guitar licks.” Taste test the album with the official album sampler on YouTube HERERituals, the Oklahoma band Other Lives’ third and latest full-length album, is a pure encapsulation of the trio’s relentless drive for precision. “It’s more dimensional, it’s more 3-D, if you will,” Tabish explains. “We wanted a cleaner, brighter record with more movement and more color.” The band are currently touring in support of the record with dates hitting Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal in May. Watch the official video for ‘Reconfiguration’ on the band’s YouTube HERE.

New Release: Alabama Shakes ‘Sound & Color’ & San Fermin ‘Jackrabbit’

Sound & Color – the follow-up to Alabama Shakes‘ Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girlsdemonstrates the tremendous strides made by the band. 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. See the Shakes live when they come up to Canada headlining Toronto’s Field Trip festival and hit the west coast for Squamish Valley Music Festival. San Fermin bandleader Ellis Ludwig-Leone wrote Jackrabbit by himself from start to finish, only to find that after a year testing the songs on the road the album wasn’t nearly finished. Ellis explains, “I went from being this isolated composer guy, out in the woods, to sitting in the back of a van with seven other members playing shows in rock clubs every night. When I got back, I revisited it all, ripped these holes in the middle of all the existing songs and added some new songs. I rethought everything I had been writing.” Watch the full band performing “Emily” and the “title track” live via their YouTube.

MapleMusic Recordings Welcomes JP Hoe To The Family

Tagged with ,

MapleMusic Recordings are thrilled to announce the signing of  the incredibly talented singer/songwriter from Winnipeg - JP Hoe. Described by The Times & Transcript as having “sharp, charming songs with a voice as earnest as some of pop’s finest heroes” - his style is both stripped-down and soaring.

The six time Western Canadian Music Award nominated artist has a tremendous gift for writing songs and he will be putting that gift to use again this coming Summer when he’ll be releasing his sixth full length record on MMR.  Expect an extraordinary collection of cinematic epics that will be both infectious and completely memorable.

Hoe’s generous, blue-sky voice is the product of hundreds of days on the road, playing gigs all over the world, connecting with audiences via his unguarded lyrics, and his down-to-earth unpretentious charm. There’s a reason his annual home-town concert, The JP Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Show, is a perennially sold out December tradition; the guy knows a thing or two about showmanship.
Album announcement and tour dates to come soon.

No matter how much research you put into figuring out who will be the hottest new artists of each year, another act comes into your vision with an output that absolutely blows you away.” - The Huffington Post

“‘Slipstream’, is a lush, space-western odyssey. Rolling in with a plodding bass line and restrained drumming, the track builds slowly before a hypnotic guitar riff oozes into the mix.’” - Consequence of Sound

This band brings a live rawness that masterfully bleeds into their records. It’s an unmatched je ne sais quoi that makes their sound relatable to the listener and devoid of condescension.- Life + Times

The once psych-rock track [Infinite Cities (Francis Preve Remix)] has a whole new sound that may surprise you, as it has taken on a house beat to carry you straight onto the dance floor.- Earmilk
