It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Halifax indie-rockers Kestrels. Their album A Ghost History was a big favourite here at The iM, so we were stoked to hear the band is dropping a collection of new songs, Dream Or Don’t Dream, on July 10th via Darla Records.
The video for the first single Grey And Blue is a raucous guitar driven number featuring the one and only J. Mascis on lead guitar and a bunch of very adorable canines. Check it out in the embed below and head over to their socials to show the trio some love.
Toronto shoegaze outfit Tearjerker are and always will be a favourite here at The iM. Their song So Dead was part of an incredible album they released in 2011 called Rare. If you’ve never heard it before, now is as good a time as any.
Check out the video for So Dead in the embed and make sure you hit up the ‘stream’ link below to listen to their latest track, Inside.
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.
