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.

Montreal indie-rock outfit Pottery are set to release their new album Welcome To Bobby’s Motel on June 26th. We recently came across their new animated video and we like what we see.

Zoon is the moniker of Canadian and First Nations “mocassin-gaze” indie-rocker Daniel Monkman. Recently, he dropped a new video for the song, Light Prism, and we can’t get enough here at The iM.
“Light Prism is a memory collage. Parts of it are from my time teaching around Turtle Island, while other imagery is of my home town of Selkirk. Selkirk was effected heavily by drugs and gangs and with that came deaths of youth I had known. Light Prism is also about reflection and being able to put things to rest.”
Check out the video below and be sure to hit up the ‘watch’ link to see more from Zoon. His debut album Bleached Wavves is out June 19th on Paper Bag Records.
As promised, Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching have dropped the third video in their Isolation Blues series leading up to the June 26th release of their new album. Michael Falk, the man behind the music, had this to say about the song:
“Alasdair & I had been working on the songs in the studio, this lyric “let me be lonely with you” emerged. It’s a contradiction that seems to sum up that odd feeling of living with someone but also sometimes feeling so alone. All gulfs of isolation are passable with time and care.”
Check out Let Me Be Lonely With You in the embed below and if you haven’t seen last weeks video, The Darkness, hit up the ‘watch’ link below. Fifty percent of all Isolation Blues proceeds on Bandcamp and Apple Music are being donated to Unison Benevolent Fund to support their efforts to assist musicians during this difficult time. A worthy cause to say the least.
