Manchester raised artist Adio Marchant (aka Bipolar Sunshine) is back with some new music with “Daydreamer” (out Jan. 25th).  The atypical pop track incorporates both the despondent and the upbeat with intelligent and unique lyrics with an all-encompassing chorus.  The song is a collaboration with SBTRKT and was produced by Fraser T Smith (Adele, Lily Allen, Sam Smith).

Marchant is currently finishing work on his debut album, set to be released next summer.

Here’s some new music from Montreal three-piece Le Couleur off their upcoming release of  Dolce Désir EP (out in Feb 2015).  “Concerto Rock” follows the bands’ signature sexy, groove-driven dance style, showcasing the sultry French vocals of Quebecois-Vietnamese singer Laurence Giroux-Do.   The video was directed by up-and-coming artist Ganesh Baron Aloir using only analog video technology.

The group is set to perform later this week as part of the M for Montreal Festival with a show at Club Lambi this Friday, November 21.

I’m stoked to put up another contest on Indie Music Filter, especially for one of my favourite bands right now, Strand Of Oaks.  Timothy Showalter will bring his travelling rock show to Toronto on December 1st in support of this years’ release, Heal.  I hope you’ve also discovered this amazing album, but in case this sounds totally new to you, trust me that this is a band you should get to know.  Is there a better way than seeing it live?

Have you heard of Brave Shores?  They’re a Toronto electro-pop duo comprised of brother and sister Jay and Stefanie McCarol, who have just released their self-titled debut EP on October 28 (Universal).  There’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard their first collaboration together, “Never Come Down“, featured in a Bell Canada commercial last year.  The interest that ensued enticed the two to sit down and write what would become their debut EP.

Toronto people, check them out next month as they open for Big Data on December 17 as part of The Edge’s “Jingle Bell Rock” event.  For fans of CHVRCHES, The Naked and Famous, check out “Dancing Underwater”.

Before I start wrapping up everything here at the office for the weekend, I wanted to get the first (of a few) great contests up on the site that I’ll be running from now until the end of the year.  Toronto legends Sloan are still swinging, after 23 years together, and set to blow the roof off the Phoenix later this month.
