The melodies served up from this Toronto group has garnered recent comparisons to Teenage Fanclub. This is high praise, but not without merit. Their debut is coated with an energetic buzz of positivity that sounds nostalgic these days.
This debut album out of London shimmers with beauty and sincerity, capturing lovely moments with each crafted lyric. Woman’s Hour find a comfy sound wedged near Rhye and Everything But The Girl creates an aura of positive energy and heartfelt emotion.
Delivered with flawless economy, this four-piece from Vancouver get in, scream what they have to scream and get out quick. The Way of White Lung is much more than a two minute punk rock quickie. Flourishes of metal riffs writhe in and out of the chaotic grunge foundation.
The musical ascent of Tom Krell has reached an apex with his third album. Adopting a blurred take on early-90’s soul in his past efforts, What Is This Heart? features crystal clear production and shines like a diamond. Adding in influences and disparate as New Jack Swing and The Velvet Underground, this is a true monument to music that transcends the boundaries of genre and era.
