New Pop Gem from The Belle Game

Those of you who are fans of well constructed pop songs that are full of extra instrumentation and catchy guitar lines are really going to love this new tune from Vancouver’s The Belle Game.  While the band prepare for the release of their latest effort, Ritual Tradition Habit, which comes out on October 9th via Boompa Records, they’re offering up a single to tease our ears.  While the soulful vocals soar, you can’t help but listen for bits of horns hiding behind the indie percussion section, with the band going in and out of focus on different instruments.  It’s a fairly exuberant track and I hope you enjoy it.

New Music from Peace

The great thing about the Internet is that it makes discovering acts a lot easier than it used to be, and lucky for Suicide Squeeze I think they’ve stumbled upon to a real gem.  They’ve just signed Peace, a Vancouver act, and plan to release the band’s album, The World Is Too Much With Us on October 16th.  It has the slightest hints of Fresh and Onlys, with that heavy vocal being the focus, although it’s not exactly in the realm of modern psychedelia. I appreciate the onward stomp of the track with its crashing cymbals propelling the song forward.  Congrats SS, this is going to be a great one.

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.
