Sunnsetter Drops New Single

Ontario based outfit Sunnsetter released a stunner of an LP last year called The best that i can be. which was one of my favorite spins in 2023. After such a unique and emotional release, one might think you’d see some sort of break or drop off in the new year, but no, new music is again forthcoming! This new single “I Actually Don’t Wanna Die” released yesterday and features an emotive sonic experience full of both down trodden moments paired with bits of joy and hope. I love it. This single comes by way of the legends Paper Bag Records.

New Tune From Jaguar Sun

Ontario based musician Chris Minielly has been making music under the moniker Jaguar Sun for 6+ years now and has a slew of great releases to stream over on his bandcamp page. Today the focus is on this new track called “Don’t Stress” which was featured on the For You EP that came out last week. The song is seemingly perfect for a Monday morning likely filled with start of the week dread and will surely ease your mind with it’s calming, easy sound. Let the bass and soothing vocals bring you some calm this morning.

You can stream and/or purchase the new For You EP from Jaguar Sun over on bandcamp.

Premiere: Hot Garbage – Mystery

We’re about to head into a short holiday break, but before we do, here’s a jam by Toronto based Hot Garbage for you to check out during your down time. The new track, “Mystery”, feels like it might have fit in during spooky October season with a swirling, gothic organ and deep, heavy guitar riffs. This sound comes with the slightest hint of a surf rock inspiration to give the song a touch of lightness and playfulness here and there. It’s a jam for sure. Gobble gobble.

This track will appear on the upcoming Hot Garbage album entitled Precious Dreams due out January 19th via Mothland. Pre-orders are live now.

Mononegatives Share North Carolina Atomic Bomb

It seems like every few months we get graced with a new single from Ontario’s Mononegatives, and thus, here we are. This time, the verses have this very robotic nature to it, almost like a stomping wave of synths punching the message into your brain. But, for me, the noisy blast of emphasis in the chorus is what grabs me, dwelling in that realm of frantic punk meets garage rock. I feel like they’re always dropping these singles that have this knack for punishing your eardrums while offering up the teeniest hint at pop tendencies. No matter what, I’m always here for it.

Another Jam From Tearing Up

Ontario based musician Graham Caldwell has really been wowing me with his new music coming out this year under the recording moniker Tearing Up. Already he’s shared the drum heavy, noise rock track called “Your Flame” and today we’ve got another new single “Said Something” for you to take into the weekend. I absolutely love the frantic nature of this song, which can often be messy or sloppy, but this one is frantic and full of energy while also keeping everything incredibly tight and enjoyable. December is off to a solid start with tunes like this one.

Tearing Up’s debut LP entitled Heavy is due out on January 23rd. Pre-save it now.

Mononegatives Drop Role Reversal Single

Mononegatives are becoming increasingly difficult to pigeonhole…and for that I’m eternally grateful. At times, the group feels like they’re operating with a penchant for video game noise pop, but then the beat settles into that motorik-ish backbeat, where jagged riffs come in and cut the song up as the vocals are delivered in an almost robotically manufactured nature. As the chorus of “role reversal” comes to life, there’s a slight hint at melodic tendencies, despite the rest of the song operating in a fairly industrial realm. You’ll flip back and forth: is this punk? do these lads do new wave? does it rule? It rules. Just listen.

Mononegatives Share Facsimile Single

Felt like Monday was as good a day as any to get down and gritty on the week, so it’s perfect that we’ve got this new tune from Ontario’s Mononegatives to distort your speakers. As the band begin to play a bit more with drum machines, and their line-up, the tune brings in a bit of industrial sterility; it reminds me a lot of where bands like Weekend or Blank Dogs kind of left us, building huge walls of noise with melodic sprigs popping up through the cracks in the tune’s ground floor. It’s a long synth punk burner brought to you courtesy of Dowd Records.

SXSW Interviews: Fanclubwallet

SXSW has officially begun down here in Austin, though the music doesn’t kick off until next week, so you’ve got a bit of time to go through all our interviews to find some cool artists. One of those, Fanclubwallet, just dropped her recent single “Gr8 Timing,” with an album on the way; she mentions that below. She’s got three shows scheduled for the week that I know of, so be sure to jam to the tune below, and read all about the project.

Hollow Graves Drop Far Out Summer

Phew, what a week/month it’s been for everyone here in the ATH offices. As we near the end of what seems like an endless 2020, it seems appropriate that I would seek comfort from our Canadian neighbors of the north. Offering me this comforting sound today is Toronto based outfit Hollow Graves and their bright and warm new tune called “Far Out Summer”. With shoegaze rooted in the core of the song, it can certainly be a bit hazy, but I’m loving that the band has really brightened things up bouncy guitars and an almost airy feel. It’s as though the Beach Boys wrote a popping shoegaze song.

Straight Rocker From Del Paxton

Hey it’s Friday so let’s go into the weekend with some fun rock music to jam out too and take away our worries about the sad state we are in. Well you need look no further than this upbeat number, “September”, from the Buffalo based outfit Del Paxton. It’s certainly a throwback themed number harkening back to bands like The Promise Ring, or maybe even GUK. However you want to take it, hopefully it offers you some enjoyment today.

This tune appear on a new 3 song EP entitled September, Bedtime, Ontario out on August 19th.
