Got 6 minutes?  Dive straight into this propulsive and epic groove from Toronto duo Moon King from their upcoming Last Gang release of “Secret Life” (out April 14th).  Songwriter Daniel Benjamin and singer/guitarist Maddy Wilde have “crafted a raw, rapturous & emotional record documenting their ascent from an airy conceptual project into a powerful live band”.  The album has them recording live off the floor, with the help of live sound engineer Noah Giffin (Owen Pallett, Austra, Diana) then mixed in New York with Jacob Portrait of Unknown Mortal Orchestra/Blouse.

I’m interested to hear more, but completely content to start off with this track “Roswell”.

Moon King will be touring Europe and the UK with Alvvays later this month, details for their upcoming North American tour will be announced soon.

Did I know that The Go! Team were working on new music?  Who knows, I can’t keep track of anything these days.  One thing I can tell you is that the band is back with new music, and an album coming out March 24th on Memphis Industries.  This record has bandleader Ian Parton writing, performing, and producing all of the songs himself (as in the early days of the group).  First listen, check out “The Scene Between”.

LYON is becoming a bit of a common name here on the blog, as just about every couple of weeks, there’s something new from her camp that hits my ear just right.  I first heard her vocals on Wolf Saga’s Strokes cover, then back in November I featured here song “Cut Me Loose”.  Today, I’m adding to that list of featured content with another original song called “Catch Me If I Fall”, featured below in her latest video.   Musically, I like pop and you know I love a catchy song.  Luckily, this one stops just short of sounding “too poppy” for my tastes.

Take a look.

“Primrose Green” is the title track from the bewitching guitar-weilding Ryley Walker.  If Sunday 2015 had a song, this would be it.  Walker sways from acoustic to jazz to folk within a few chords muttering a “Headful of Primrose made me high, high, high!”

Oh, it does – in the greatest sense of the word.
