We’re heading into a long weekend which means you have a lot of free time on your hands. Sure you could go outside and try to enjoy the last big weekend of summer or you could catch up on the amazing online releases you missed this past week. A pair of great Toronto bands share their albums plus a hilarious video from a man that’s gone solo.

Here are the best online shares of the week:

Toronto folk rockers The Wooden Sky add some grit to their sound with their new record Lets Be Ready.

Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis goes solo on his new record but recruits Portlandia star Fred Armisen for his new video.

M83 released a new video for an old song. Give “Lower Your Eyelids to Die With the Sun” a watch:

If you like creepy animation and sweet acoustic folk tunes, you’re going to dig Chad VanGaalen’s “Monster” video.

Broken Bells have shared a UFO inspired video for the groovy After the Disco cut “Control”.

Another Toronto band wants you to hear their record before it’s released. This time it’s Zeus sharing an album stream of their upcoming album “Classic Zeus”.
