More New Appleseed Cast

Several months ago word got around that Appleseed Cast were finally planning to release a follow up to Peregrine of 2006.  These rumors were confirmed when we found a little demo of a new song called “Road West” way back in September.  A few months later, the band offered up finished track “Raise the Sails” which got even more positive buzz going around the music world.  Today we offer another sneak peek of the new album with a track entitled “As the Little Things Go”.  The new song is another instrumental oriented tune that seems to hark back to the days of Low Level Owl 1 & 2.  You’ll be able to pick up Appleseed Cast’s new album Sagarmatha on February 17th and catch one of their stellar live shows at the Mohawk on the 7th.

New Music From The Wrens

After much buzz in the internet world, The Wrens are finally confirming that an album is indeed in the works and being recorded as we speak.  The band has also just offered up the first sneak peak MP3 of the album with an as of yet titled song.  The new track is apparently a rough cut of better things to come, but we couldn’t resist the first taste of new material since 2003s Meadowlands.

Winter Gloves

We just started getting into new Montreal based band Winter Gloves, and we wanted to give you a download of the band’s best jam.  For your listening pleasure, we give you “Let Me Drive” which will appear on the band’s debut LP About a Girl.  The song blends an old school Mates of State organ sound with more poppy elements of fellow Canadians Tokyo Police Club.  You can expect the new album on March 24th via Paper Bag Records.

Reggae Time with the Meditations

I love my friends Corey and Levi, for many reasons, but one being their interest in music outside of my spectrum. This year they finally converted me, via The Big Takeover’s Top 50 Reggae Albums, to the ways of true reggae. I opted to share with you one of my recent discoveries, The Meditations, on this fine Thursday. This ain’t your mother’s reggae tunes!
