We came across Oklahoma City indie-pop duo Husbands when they released a collection of b-sides and demos from their latest album, After The Gold Rush Party, back in late May. Well, the boys are back with a new song and now it’s time to share it with you.
“You can’t miss it. First thing you see in Yukon, Oklahoma is the water tower that proudly reads “YUKON: HOME OF GARTH BROOKS.” Danny grew up in this smallish town, cruising Garth Brooks Boulevard, aka, Main Street, USA. This song’s about living in the shadow of greatness, the struggle for some to transcend a small-town mindset, and the sensation of cruising the main drag and feeling mixed emotions of nostalgia, joy, and ennui. Here’s “Garth,” your sweetly melancholy homecoming end of summer jam.”
Check out Garth in the embed, and be sure to hit up their socials for more going forward. Trust us when we say, this is a band you don’t want to sleep on.
We first told you about Orangeville-based singer/songwriter and musician Sara May (aka Falcon Jane) back in late August when she released her incredible video for The Other Moon. Well, she’s back with another song (and video) and we want you to know all about it here at The iM.

Just today, Toronto noise-makers METZ have shared another song (and video) from their upcoming long-player, Atlas Vending. The dystopian themed video was shot in Queenstown, on the South Island of New Zealand and directed by Dylan Pharazyn.
“I started thinking of the feeling of war or samurai films, beautiful but dark and violent… but then I had this idea to work up a more unique world… I started to think of a more futuristic setting — more unusual and dream-like with the story set on a distant planet where there is future technology and some kind of alien magic… like a futuristic fable. I loved the idea of the hero Ayeth on this nomadic walk through an epic landscape… I loved the strength in her and the pairing of her with a wounded companion, something really human and vulnerable… I wanted that emotive warmth countering the cold military images.”
It’s a visual trip you won’t soon forget … now it’s time for you to see and hear what we’re talking about. Check out Blind Youth Industrial Park in the embed, and be sure to hit up their socials for more leading up to the record release. Atlas Vending drops October 9th via Royal Mountain and Sub Pop.
