October is a month for long sleeves, chilly nights and post season baseball. Say goodbye to September with this playlist of new music from last month. Whether you prefer to listen via Soundcloud, Rdio or Spotify, I’ve got some brand new tunes from Wales, The Elwins, Brave Shores, Bravestation and many more.
This post is way overdue, but I’m continuing to realize just how difficult it can be to do simple things like blog, when you’ve got a 10-week-old dictating your schedule. Anyway, said baby in question is sleeping, so I’ve got these 10 minutes to get a post up about Toronto band Bravestation. The group just last week released their V EP (via Culvert Music), featuring the songs “Haven” and “Actors” that I’ve highlighted in the past along with two new songs (“Gemini” and “Operator”). Again and again, I’m reminded of why I dig this band.
The band celebrated the release with a sold out show at the Drake Hotel in Toronto last week with Young Empires. Stay tuned for upcoming shows or check in with the band.
Playlists are up! It’s a smaller, more concise list this month, but tons of great new bands to get on board with. Choose your streaming platform (Soundcloud, Rdio and Spotify) and get listening. Artists to watch: Yukon Blonde, Leon Bridges, Tame Impala, Austin Basham.
Have you heard the latest single from Toronto band Bravestation? “Actors” was just released on Tuesday via Culvert Music, also on their forthcoming EP later this summer. The track was mixed by Steve Chahley (U.S. Girls, Slim Twig, Young Guv) and might just be my favourite track from the band yet.
