The year is 2010 and the indie music scene is hitting its stride here in Toronto. Enter John O’Regan and his D’Urbervilles (pre-Matters) side-project Diamond Rings… everything points to a bright future for indie-show-goers in the T-Dot. That said, we’re not sure there’s a song that reminds us more of that time period like All Yr Songs; a track we will never tire of.
Check it out in the embed and hit up John’s most recent project JG Ballad at the ‘listen’ link below. There’s some killer covers on there only he could create… and we mean that in the best way possible.
Indie-dream-pop band WILDIVE hail from Cologne, Germany. The trio dropped a couple of singles in recent months and we took notice of their latest effort, Euphoria. They count Beach Fossils, Men I Trust and The Smiths as some of their influences.
Check out the new video in the embed below and be sure to hit up their socials for more going forward… looks like these guys are on to something pretty special here.
It’s hard to believe it’s been more than 10 years since this song came out. Pen To The Paper remains in rotation here at The iM and as far as we’re concerned, this song is a major part of a defining era in Canadian indie music.
Unfortunately, Parlovr haven’t made any new music in recent years but we’ll always have this beauty to look back upon. Check it out below.
Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching are back with another video in their Isolation Blues series today. The song will be included on the new album which is due for release on June 26th via Head In The Sand Records.
“All My Worries is a song about the winds of change and what they require. They ask for honesty of intention from us. They ask us to leave situations that aren’t good for us, to follow love to places that bring out the best in us. They ask us to reflect on our lives and our decisions and our future. But also to understand that actions have consequences and for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction. Plan/don’t plan accordingly.”
Check out All My Worries in the embed below and make sure you hit up their socials for more going forward. The band is donating 50% of album proceeds to the Unison Benevolent Fund to assist their efforts to support musicians during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Bristol-based dream-pop duo Jadu Heart are set to release their sophomore album, Hyper Romance on September 25th. We recently came across the new song and video for Walk The Line and we can’t get enough here at The iM. It’s a carefree, melodic number that hits just in time for summer.
Have a watch in the embed and be sure to check out some other album cuts at the ‘stream’ link below. Looking forward to hearing more from these two going forward.
We were first introduced to Sun Glitters way back in 2011. A lot has changed in the world since then but fortunately for us, Victor Ferreira is still creating music. Just recently he released SSoofftt TToouucchh on the masses; a selection of beautifully crafted songs, perfect for a warm and sunny spring afternoon.
Check out the album (and video) in the embed below and be sure to hit up his socials for more. Thankfully, there is no shortage of creativity when it comes to Sun Glitters.
We’ve always been huge supporters of Stacey here at The iM, if only because she is really great at creating music. In case you’re not familiar with the singer/songwriter, today is as good a day as any to check out her new song, Far Away.
The video was shot in 16 mm film, which beautifully compliments the aesthetic of her look and surroundings. She describes the song as: “A dream existence where the sadness of the world is only a distant memory.”
Check it out in the embed and be sure to hit up the links below. Hopefully we’ll hear more from Stacey in the near future. In the meantime, enjoy this exceptional piece of work.
The good folks at Arts & Craftsposted a video today from Nashville-based singer/songwriter Liza Anne. We can’t get enough of her infectious, bold and downright wacky antics in Bad Vacation. Now it’s time to share it with you!
Check it out in the embed and be sure to hit up her Bandcamp page below for more new music… you’ll be glad you did.
Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching are back with another video in their series of 10 leading up to the June 26th release of Isolation Blues.
“Better Off Alone is a song about realizing that you need to back away from the world you’ve built for yourself, that it might not be a good place for you after all, and to take all the time you need to get yourself sorted out.”
Check out the video in the embed and be sure to follow the band at the links below. There’s more where that came from, so stay tuned people.
Jade Hairpins is the moniker of Fucked Up drummer Jonah Falco and songwriter/guitarist Mike Haliechuk. We came across their video for Dolly Dream today and can’t get enough here at The iM… indie-pop song writing at it’s best.
Check it out in the embed below and head over to their Bandcamp page to listen to a couple of more album cuts. The new long player, Harmony Avenue is due out May 29th via Merge Records.
