New The Retinas EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Yellow Rocket, the latest musical vessel from The Retinas, was recently launched. Whether simmering in a stargazing state of reflection or surging toward the unknown, the power trio retains a gravitational pull. Disseminated from space, the garage rockers balance hushed valleys with adrenaline-laced peaks. Cultivating an ebb and flow between the here and the out there, Yellow Rocket sparkles on our radar.





New Greg Mendez Split EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The new split EP between Greg Mendez & Nervous Dater’s Rachel Lightner recently hit the open airwaves. Mendez continues to negotiate through dreariness, in melodic personal narratives that reach for an escape in a relatable folk manner. These songs march in a semi-subdued, relieving ache, united in self-evaluating isolation. Lightner taps into a similar thread of delicate openness and evaluation.





Gabrielle Smith (from Eskimeaux) new solo pop project: Gabby's World

Known more for works of raw emotion and ambient exploration, Gabrielle Smith -- performing under the moniker Gabby's World, and formerly known as Eskimeaux and Ó -- treads into poppy fields with her new single "Rear View" from her upcoming album Beast on Beast. "Rear View" continues the transition of Smith's sound from dark, DIY, drone-based songs into a flower punk bedroom pop act; however, she loses none of the feeling and emotion in her new song. Her previous EP Year of the Rabbit provided space for Smith to feel out her pop possibilities, and, by contrast, she delivers plenty of hooks on "Rear View", tying her visual poetry to head-bopping glo-fi in a way that will make you want to dance in a sad way. Listen to "Rear View" below. The Beast on Beast album release party is scheduled for November 15 at Elsewhere's Zone One.  - Will Sisskind





Hot Lips - "Piranha" Video Premiere!

Hot Lips are one of the most talked about bands around Toronto right now. They have an aggressive rock sound with some electronic influences not too far off from a Death From Above style. They are able to achieve this with their bass/drums/synth instrumentation. Their whole vibe has a dark sexiness to it which is apparent in this brand new video for their track “Piranha”. This live-off-the-floor video was recorded at Playdead Cult Studios and recorded/mixed by their longtime producer Josh G. Bowman. Alex Black (bass) and Keith Heppler (drums) lay down a thunderous rhythm while vocalist Karli Forget wails throughout the whole song and even grabs a bass of her own near the end for a slammin’ double bass attack. Hot Lips have a number of shows lined up across Ontario this fall including their single release party at Junction City Music Hall on October 13th. – Kris Gies
