It’s been really quiet on Indie Music Filter this week, as I’ve been occupied with an office move to a new place in the East End in Toronto.  My business partner found a building with great potential on Gerrard St. East and for months, has had the space renovated to what is now our new office space.  There’s been a series of delays, so many in fact, that I’m surprised we’re actually now moved in.  Too bad we can’t find the box that had almost all of the office phones…..

As I write this, I’m sitting in my nearly set up office, with a window looking out towards the back patio.  It’s totally dark everywhere and I’ve got the tunes turned up.  Like this one, the song “Young & Free” by Sucré.  I tweeted this track a week ago while perusing Rdio’s latest releases,  noting that there was just something awesome about this tune.  Today, while catching up in the feeds, I read more about the band on All Things Go.  The French sugar/band is a musical group led by singer Stacy King, produced by multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Larson and her husband (and Mutemath drummer) Darren King.    

And now back to regular posting….

“Philadelphia” by Paper Lions, off the album My Friends.  Channeling the nostalgia of the bands’ family vacations of past, Colin Buchanan of Paper Lions says of the video “There are a lot of awkward moments in this video.  Those uncomfortable, awkward moments that capture that strange point in your life when you are held at bay by your age. Being treated like a child, but you feel like an adult.”

Here’s the 2nd single from the latest album from The Rural Alberta Advantage.  Check out “On the Rocks” off Mended With Gold. “One of the events which inspired ‘On the Rocks’ is related to my first trip out to Newfoundland well over a decade ago,” says the band’s Nils Edenloff. “So I’m also pretty happy with the double entendre as it relates to the song. We may be the Rural Alberta Advantage, but anyone who knows northern Alberta (i.e. Fort McMurray) will understand that Newfoundland isn’t too far out of my wheelhouse.”
