Back in early May, we told you about Toronto dream-pop outfit Favours and their incredibly infectious song Lux Luv. Since then, the band released another single and just recently, their new album, Made To Wait. We’ve had this thing on repeat over the last couple of days and now it’s time to share it with you.
Check out our favourite album cut In The Night in the embed below and be sure to listen to the record as a whole. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did.
Way back in 2009 we were introduced to the sounds of Toronto noise-maker Josh McIntyre (aka Little Girls). In fact, his album Concepts still gets a regular spin here at The iM. Since then he’s moved on to form another musical project with singer Talvi Faustmann called Prince Innocence and also has his own project under the Prince Josh moniker.
This year we’ve heard a new Prince Innocencesong and a new Prince Joshalbum but before you check those out, let’s take a trip down memory lane with our favourite album cut from Concepts, Youth Tunes. Like a fine wine, this song is aging very well.
Recently we told you about the upcoming album from Halifax noise-makers Kestrels. Well, the band is back with another new song and video and this time, instead of dogs, it stars a bunch kitties. How can you go wrong really?
Check out Vanishing Point in the embed below and stay tuned for the new album Dream Or Don’t Dream dropping this Friday via Darla Records.
Five Day Morning is the work of Edmonton noise-pop artist Corbin Cammidge. While perusing the internet for new sounds we came across his debut effort, Sky Hold Me Tight. One song in particular really caught our attention… Horizon.
Take a listen to the track in embed below and hit up his socials for more going forward. And, while we have your attention, he also happens to run a pretty sick music blog called Honey On The Knife… you should definitely check it out.
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.
Hamilton shoegaze outfit Capitol recently dropped a dreamy new single on the masses and we want you to know all about it. The track will be included on a 7″ with b-side Piano Exit, due for release July 31st on Vancouver’s Kingfisher Bluez record label.

Dream-pop outfit Saucer Eyes hail from the fine city of Toronto. Recently, the band uploaded their debut effort into cyberspace and we’re certainly glad they did. Fuzzy guitars over male and female vocals create an atmosphere reminiscent of early Slowdive with some Doppelgänger-era Curve thrown in the mix.
Take a listen to 2020 in the embed below and make sure you keep your eyes peeled for all things Saucer Eyes. As soon as we know more, you’ll be the first to know.
On June 26th, Hand Drawn Dracula will release the debut full-length album, Pure Glass, from Toronto shoegaze outfit Sahara. The band recently unleashed the lead single and an accompanying video on the masses.
