From Toronto: Blue Rodeo’s “Stealin’ All My Dreams”

Much like our cover story this month, here’s a fact-filled video on why Harper’s gotta go.

From Ontario: Evening Hymns’ “All My Life I Have Been Running”

Fun fact: the bass player on the album? Last year’s winner of The Overcast’s Borealis Music Prize, Jon Hynes. Story goes that “Jonas Bonnetta of Evening Hymns was trekking out to the Joshua Tree desert with a Super-8 camera, jacked up on a Tom Petty binge, when the spark arrived for his new album. The resulting album is about “the velocity of time moving through us all … the concept that all of this pent-up energy could be stored inside these quiet moments – a whisper as effective as an explosion.”

From California: GØGGS’ “She Got Harder”

If you’re keeping track of Ty Segall, so far this year he’s released a solo EP, started a new band called Broken Bat by merging with The Melvins & OFF, and got media all stirred up about his forthcoming FUZZ album. And now this — a garage punk band called GOGGS.

From Saskatchewan: Library Voices’ “Oh Donna!”

Catchy Canadian indie-pop-rockers Library Voices will release their new album, Lovish, on November 6th.  Not-so-fun fact: As the band were prepping to write new material, frontman Carl Johnson was senselessly beaten by strangers and left unconscious on a street. Despite the concussion and his resulting inability so smell certain things, Consequence of Sound joked, “Though his sense of smell is still impaired, he was able to contribute seven tracks and guitarist Brennan Ross stepped up for the remaining four songs. After two years of recuperation and work, the band is finally releasing their third record.”

From Michigan: Pity Sex’s “What Might Sooth You?”

Another great single released way in advance of their new album, White Hot Moon (Spring 2016). Equal parts punk and shoegaze, the song is a ballad for both sides of a new relationship about “those moments the line between what is possible and what feels possible goes askew. ‘What Might Soothe You?’ is a plea to the inaccessible other: ‘Come down here, stay with me, let the dream dissipate later.'”
