Dancing Choose by TV On The Radio off Dear Science. Look for it.

I’ve been listening to this record on my bike ride to and from work these days. Other than Golden Age (which I think is a killer tune, a great lead off and a pretty interesting video), Dancing Choose is my dark horse winner for future stand-out song off the album. There’s something about it I can’t quite put my finger on.

Put this on at a party? You will get a reaction. Hopefully they won’t think its REM.

I still think Golden Age belongs on Midnight Vultures….

Who : Hooded Fang from Toronto.

What : 6 friends, roommates and lovers came together last year to start a band who’s started to turn heads these days. Taken from a children’s book by Canadian author Mordecai Richler , Hooded Fang has most recently assembled their first EP (self-titled) from two weeks in June spent recording and mixing in different basements and attics across Toronto. It jumps genres looking for that perfect pop song. Keep an eye on them, Pop Montreal showcase in a couple weeks, as well opening for The Born Ruffians on Nov. 1st. Hey Ben, thanks for the tip.

Song : Land Of Giants .

This week I’ve really been enjoying Moon Country, the new record from Montreal’s pysch-pop band The High Dials. Previously, we pointed out the first single off the record (Killer Of Dragons) on the mobile site. Now, its a song called Clare that really has my ear.

Who : Miniature Tigers from Phoenix, AZ.

What : Is this pop mixed between Fountains of Wayne and The Morning Benders ? Thats what came to me instantly. The song below comes from Tell It To The Volcano (Modern Art Records), out now for download but not physically available until early 2009. Buy it here at iTunes or Amazon . Also, definietly worth mentioning is the fact that the band does a great cover of Mama Mia by ABBA , head to Pasta Primavera to get that one.

Song : Cannibal Queen .
