The Right Sound for the Right Price


Radiohead – “Burn The Witch”

After a week of teases, like disappearing from the internet completely and putting out videos of birds chirping, Radiohead finally dropped their first new song in five years. Right before making their festival rounds at Lollapalooza and Osheaga.

Arkells – “Private School”

Hamilton natives Arkells have returned two years after their Juno winning album High Noon. These are not the same Arkells, they’ve changed up their sound big time! If you’re a fan of Beck, you might just dig this!

Kygo & Labrinth – “Fragile”

Kygo is best known as an EDM artist, but in this track he’s mixing it up. He sort of went in an imagine dragons and X ambassadors direction. You can catch Kygo at VELD this July.

Grimes- “California”

Get your summer playlist ready, the latest single from Grimes’ acclaimed album Art Angels is called “California”. It sounds exactly the same as an orange tastes, you’ll know what I mean when you hear it. Feel the sun with this name one from Grimes, on Your First Listen.

Coldplay- “Hymn For The Weekend”

Beyonce has been everywhere lately, dropping her mega album Lemonade but did you know she also made a guest appearance on the latest Coldplay album? You can hear her in this track, an ode to…well… it sounds like it’s about getting high. Listen to those words!
