Get ‘The Trouble With Us’ Via iTunes HERE

Over the past few years, a musical admiration between Chet Faker and Marcus Marr has grown, which culminated in a four-day sojourn in Marr’s South London studio earlier this year. Over the four day recording session, four songs were written, as the two discovered that Marr’s powerful, punchy dance production perfectly balanced Faker’s soulful vocals. The result is the 4-track EP ‘Work,’ out December 4 via Faker’s own label, Detail Records and Downtown Records and Fontana North.

New Releases: YACHT ‘I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler’

“Once we catch up to yesterday’s future, it’s no longer what we imagined. It’s just the present all over again. And so on. We’ve made an album about that. It contains some speculations about the future that are big and distant as science fiction stories. But it’s also about looking carefully at the world around us and trying to understand what we’ve done with the imaginations of those who came before us. Would they believe it?” YACHT bring our cultural progress into question on their groundbreaking new record ‘I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler.’

MapleMusic Recordings are thrilled to announce the signing of the strikingly gifted singer/songwriter from Caledon – Megan Bonnell. Given four N’s by NOW Magazine and described as sounding “more than a little like Joni Mitchell, though the artist most immediately called to mind is Damien Rice” – her style is both ambient and affecting.

She has a tremendous gift for writing songs and she will be showcasing that skill when she releases her second full length record on MMR in 2016. Expect a breathtaking assembly of fetching tunes that will be infectious and haunting.

Bonnell’s generous voice has sung the world over – from San Francisco to Paris, she has connected to audiences with her unguarded lyrics and down-to-earth charm.  A consummate performer with a bounty of talent, she is a welcome addition to the Maple family.

Album announcement and tour dates to come soon.

Taylor Knox has contributed to the performances of some of Canada’s most well respected artists.

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.

 Sun Club

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.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Announce New Album ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’ Out November 13


Listen To Title Track ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon’ Via Stereogum HERE

On November 13, 2015 King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will release ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon‘ via ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings.

Starting out in 2010 as a solid garage rock group, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard followed their collective muse wherever it chose to lead them. For their latest opus, ‘Paper Mâché Dream Balloon,’ they initially thought it was going to be filled with the darker, heavier material that the band has been playing live of late. But front man Stu Mackenzie soon decided that it was time to put aside the longer, more conceptual pieces and go in a completely new direction.
