We first told you about Quarter-Life Crisis (aka Ryan Hemsworth) back in early October when we came across the exceptional single for Postcard from Spain. Well, Ryan is back with another single from the upcoming record, You & Me featuring Claud. The new EP also features contributions from Frances Quinlan of Hop Along, Meg Duffy of Hand Habits, Charlie Martin of Hovvdy and Yohuna.
Claud had this to say about the track: “Ryan sent me a bunch of really pretty guitar tracks around the time I had just moved to New York… it was a new city, I was alone, and I was definitely deep in my feels. The song sorta turned into a yearning winter love song. When I sent it back to him after I wrote it I asked him not to laugh at me for the corny-ness of the lyrics… sometimes lyrics just need to say it like it is.“

Way back in 2011, we were completely obsessed with the A Way EP from Ryan Hemsworth, and in particular, the song Castle In England. Fast forward almost 10 years, and the Halifax native has accomplished a lot, including a string of well-received EP’s and albums. He even won a Juno award in 2014. Just today, Saddle Creek announced his latest project, Quarter-Life Crisis. In true Hemsworth style, there are a number of collaborators involved on this one, including Frances Quinlan of Hop Along, Meg Duffy of Hand Habits, Charlie Martin of Hovvdy, Claud, and Yohuna.

We first told you about Rich Aucoin‘s album United States back in late May when we came across his rather infectious single, Reset. Well, the record finally dropped today, and after just one listen, we’re hooked. Now, it’s time to share it with you.

Devarrow is the work of Halifax-based singer/songwriter and musician Graham Ereaux. Just recently the indie-folkster released a new music video for his song Change and we want you to know about it.
“‘Change feels a bit like an illusive house cat – it’s lived so close to me for years but I rarely see it. I wrote this song back at the same time when I wrote ‘Little Road’, and a lot of the other songs on my first proper album, The Great Escape, but for one reason or another it didn’t get recorded. I then finally recorded it to put it on my self-titled record which I just released, but it felt a bit too poppy to fit with the rest of the tracks, so again, it didn’t make it on to that record. This song has been with me since the beginning it seems, so it’s nice for it to finally emerge from under the bed and let me show it to you all.”
