It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto by way of Vancouver indie-electronic outfit Speaker Face. Good news for us… the wait is over. The 3-piece is back with a groovy new track and we couldn’t wait to share it with you.
“Phosphorescence is a thank you letter to those who were here long before us, specifically the Coast Salish, and the early 1900s Japanese settlers, who were interned during WWII.”

Toronto noise-makers METZ are back with a brand new song (and video) for your listening pleasure. Clocking in at over 7 minutes, it’s a raucous number that will leave you drooling for more. The track will be included on their upcoming album Atlas Vending to released October 9th through Royal Mountain and Sub Pop.
The song is “…about leaving a bad situation behind. About overcoming obstacles that once held you back, rising above, and looking to a better future. The title refers to immersing yourself fully into what you love and using it as a sanctuary from negativity and a catalyst for change.” The band has shared a new video for the track which Video Director Tony Wolski sought to visually enhance and expand on these ideas. Wolski: “The song has a beautiful, crushing numbness to it that we wanted to mirror in the visual. So we chose to romanticize our main character’s descent into her delusions of love and togetherness. At a time when everyone’s simultaneously coping with some sort of isolation, a story about loneliness—and the mania that comes with it—seems appropriate to tell.”

We recently came across the latest video from Toronto power-pop outfit BLANKS and to say that we’re excited about it, would be a serious understatement. It’s a real infectious number and it’s been on repeat all weekend long here at The iM. Now it’s time to share it with you.

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.
Toronto pop-rockers Ferraro are back with a brand new single just in time for your summer vacation. The song, produced by alt-pop duo The Darcys, has been on heavy rotation here at The iM for the last couple of days and now it’s time we share it with you.
“Sometimes you have to take a momentary, possibly reckless, release from the difficulties life throws your way. Revel in the instant gratification of a night of debauchery with no regard for the looming consequences.”
