The Right Sound for the Right Price


Silversun Pickups – “Circadian Rhythm (Last Dance)”

Back in September, the Silversun Pickups released their fourth studio album Better Nature which includes this song. If you’ve ever had trouble sleeping, you know that feeling where you don’t know what to do or where to go and you pace the floor and toss and turn? Then you’ll understand this song.

Weaves – “One More”

Here’s a Toronto group that’s gotten love far beyond our borders from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone. Weaves is one of the weirdest, most interesting bands to come out of Toronto lately and one of my personal favourites. They’ll be dropping a new album in June and this is what you have to look forward to.

Lewis Del Mar – “Loud(y)”

A new duo from New York’s Rockaway Beach, Lewis Del Mar is one of those acts that seemed to appear out of nowhere with this viral hit. Their debut EP is out now and if you dig bands like Bob Moses or Alt J, this could be right up your alley.

Little Scream – “Love as a Weapon”

Little Scream is the stage name of Montreal based artist Laurel Sprengelmeyer. But, she’s not the only one you’ll hear on her upcoming album, Cult Following; she’ll have friends like Owen Pallett, Sufjan Stevens, and TV on the Radio’s Kyp Malone joining her. The new album drops on May 6th.

Joywave – “Destruction”

You might remember Joywave from their contribution to Big Data’s huge hit “Dangerous”, but now they’re their own band and they also do their own thing. Their latest album is called How Do You Feel Now.
