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.
Daniel Benjamin might be one of the hardest working artists in all of music; it appears as though he is always cooking something up. His electronic-dance-pop project Moon King has been around since the early days of The iM and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Below you’ll find our favourite Moon King cut, Only Child, courtesy of our weekly TBT. And, while you’re at it, Daniel has an infectious new song out, Seconds From You with Detroit’s Vespre. Hit up the ‘watch’ link below for more.

Montreal indie-pop songstress MUNYA has outdone herself on her latest single, Boca Chica. The song was released just yesterday by record label Luminelle Recordings and revolves around, of all things, a small Texas village where SpaceX recently set up shop.
“The world is upside down, we don’t know when this is going to end and what the long term effects are going to be…but I know we have to keep dreaming. Boca Chica is the name of a town in Texas where SpaceX is building dreams, they are building a starship to Mars. I know a Starship is not going to save any lives today, but I also know that the science and technology we create from these programs will help shape the future for the best just as the Space race did in the 60’s. My dream is that we realize we are one, realize we are all in this together, that we all need to help each other and that we can do the impossible if we do it together and keep dreaming.”
Very nice words. Now, take a listen to the catchy little number in the embed below and be sure to keep an eye on this talented young singer.
Montreal indie-rock veterans Wolf Parade have a new video out for their song Under Glass. The track comes off their latest effort Thin Mind which was released back in January via Sub Pop and Royal Mountain Records. A few words from the band on the video…
“In a non-distant future, humankind has become biofused and addicted to information and the devices that deliver it. Real life decays, and all human connection is lost. One of the few remaining souls, isolated and alone, decides to log in for one last hit of euphoria… Under The Glass.”
