It’s Tuesday, the day we run down a few picks of new and/or notable Canadian music. Just a digest of newish songs today, in contrast to last week’s epic paean to Tomboyfriend from Luke. What do you prefer for this feature? A quick selection of music to listen to, or a longer piece of writing about, say, one band or one song? Here’s a poll to vote in, at right. Make your preference known!
Second: “Latin America” by Holy Fuck. That other notable Canadian F-word band has a new album coming out in May, but recently started streaming this first single off that album on their website. Slick, synthesized, and slightly sinister.
Lastly: “The Day We Hit the Coast” by Thrush Hermit. Joel Plaskett’s non-emergency band called it quits years ago, but a recent reunion tour and a new box set of all the band’s recordings, issued yesterday by Maple Music, has reignited Thrushmania. You kids today: this is what the 90s sounded like (i.e., awesome).
