Rad New Tunes from Nu Sensae

What? You thought I was joking? Here’s more rock n’ roll, this time from Vancouver’s Nu Sensae.  In just a few weeks the group will be releasing their new record, Sundowning, on August 7th via Suicide Squeeze.  This track opens with Andrea Lukic’s rough snarl, but while it hits hard immediately, it also has the ability to draw back a little bit.  You’ll find a smoother vocal during the chorus, followed by a gut busting guitar solo.  I love the brash mentality here, putting a little (or a lot) of balls into the formulaic girl-fronted garage rock of the day.

New Dream Pop from Little Chords

If you dig hard enough, you can find some really incredible groups putting out records on bandcamp.  That’s how I discovered this great number from Little Chords, an act hailing from Vancouver. After doing my research, I was shocked to find out that it’s Jamison from Teen Daze, who’s winning over a lot of people on the Internet.  This Little Chords effort isn’t as dance heavy, instead reminding me of the bedroom works of Jack from Wild Nothing.  You can find this song, as well as other on the new record just released called Afterlife. It’s definitely repeated spin worthy.
