Elliott Brood – “Dig A Little Hole”
Sweet roots rocker Hamiltonians (try saying that three times fast!) Elliott Brood are back with a new album September 15th called Ghost Gardens. This sing-along, stomp-along, clap-along gem will have to tide you over until then!
Moon Taxi – “Two High”
Nashville five piece Moon Taxi want to fill you with hope, and say they “were inspired by the simple and universal peace sign” when writing this one. Let’s get zen with “Two High.”
Terra Lightfoot – “Paradise”
Hamilton’s Terra Lightfoot is constantly performing, so hopefully you’ve heard her powerful vocals live by now. You may have even heard her test this on the road as a track called “Thunder,” but she switched up the lyrics last minute in the studio. Make sure to show up early for Whitehorse December 8th at massey Hall, Terra Lightfoot will open the show!
Foo Fighters – “The Line”
The Foo Fighters Concrete and Gold is out September 15th. Dave Grohl says this one is all about trying to find hope when every day it seems everything is on the line (hence the title, “The Line.”)
