Honeyed escapism accompanied by a wry smile, “Janet Planet” is convivial, contoured and taken from Empty Seats, the just-released new EP from Montréal’s TOPS. You can download it from Bandcamp now, while black- and pink-swirl-vinyl editions of it are set to arrive sometime in mid-August.
Bright and emotive, poignant and pretty, “damn” is the deep, dynamic new single from Montréal’s Ada Lea. Her next and second LP one hand on the steering wheel the other sewing a garden is released on September 24th, and you can pre-order “thunderstorm”-vinyl, “electric-lemonade”-vinyl, CD, cassette and bundled editions of it from Saddle Creek and Bandcamp today.
An unsettling, deceptively-simple hymn, “Preoccupy” reaches deep while “The Moon” lays its story bare with a riveting immediacy. Together they comprise the newest single from Montréal’s Common Holly, and it’s out today on Barsuk Records. You can find streaming links for it right here, and it’s on Bandcamp as well.
