TV Girl - She Smokes in Bed

TV Girl always seems to make it's way on to summer mixes and this one has a good shot at making it this year. Here's the first look at something new from their upcoming album Lonely Women due out June 18th. Keep track of them and pre-order the album on their bandcamp page.

Won't Be Long

Halifax-based label Acadian Embassy unveils We Have The Same Lights Overhead: A Tribute to Share, a compilation celebrating the Canadian songwriter Andrew Sisk and his band Share.

In addition to including a solo track to the compilation, Grant, along with her husband, Daniel Ledwell, and members of Quiet Parade, The Prospector’s Union and Dance Movie recorded a version of “Won’t Be Long” – a previously unrecorded and unreleased Share song.

The entire tribute album is available on a pay what you want basis over at bandcamp.

Songs to play loud.

I've been terrible at making mixes, I have seven drafts of my spring mix going and by the time it's ready it'll be summer. While I struggle to get my act together I figured I could share some songs that I've enjoyed playing absurdly loud. They aren't all the newest songs, but they do just fine for dancing around at the end of the week.

Club 8 - I'm Not Gonna Grow Old

Club 8 brought us one of my favorite summer jams of 2010 with 'Western Hospitality' and now they're back with a fresh new album, Above The City, out May 21st. You can stream the entire album here.

Sweet Baboo - If I Died

Lisenting to Sweet Baboo's most recent and fourth album, Ships, makes me want to go skipping down the sidewalk while the bees buzz, the birds chirp, and the flowers blossom. It sounds like spring. It's something about the brass-heavy pop that makes it hard not to plaster a big cheesy smile on your face while you listen. This album happens to be a concept album about the sea. Moshi Moshi records put this out April 23rd. They happen to be one of my favorite record companies with a very distinct sound, check them out if you haven't already.

I know I've been all over the place this week. If you came looking for the usual indie/folk rock stuff, it'll  be around. In the meantime, I've been leaning towards the electronic stuff. Hopefully you'll find something here to enjoy.

Say Lou Lou - Fool of Me ft. Chet Faker

I had a dream that I could teach you how to love. I started listening to this song in a happy place, sun on my face and a drink in hand. By the end, I somehow ended up feeling like the jilted lover. How dare he.

Josh Record - Bones

Wilsen - Dusk

Wilsen certainly seems like a perfect match as an opener on Daughter's current US tour. While they aren't any happier than Daughter, there's a buoyancy to their songs, where as Daughter's songs can leave you feeling as though you've drowned. Somehow Wilsen manages to sing this and still sound incredibly defeated.

"There is nothing finer than the draw of summer's spell
the cypress trees are swaying in the drunken wind."

Colour Coding - Had It All

Ahh the sweet sting of regret wrapped up in a pop song package. You could've had it all, but you messed up.

Enjoy some more of this Sydney based duo. You can get 'Kick' on a name your price basis on bandcamp. Find Colour Coding on facebook.

100 Mile House - Last Call

Random bandcamp finds are always gratifying. I was hooked on Edmonton's Le Wrens (thanks to Adam)  and started clicking through the tags. This is where I landed.

Take a bottle and lead the way.

Max Frost - White Lies

Cheating is no good. Songs about cheating on the other hand, have a habit of being super catchy. This one is no exception. I highly recommend following up "White Lies" with the slow and sexy "Nice and Slow". Max Frost is turning out some solid jams. You can grab them for free on his Reverb Nation page.

Les Enfants - Celeste

Les Enfants, hailing from New Zealand, are a hand clapping good time. This one has been in my drafts box for far too long and needed to get out.

Woman's Hour - Our Love Has No Rhythm

Woman's Hour, a four piece band from London, are doing their part to ensure that there's never a shortage of sexy slow jams in the world.

Poliça - Tiff (ft. Justin Vernon)

2012 didn't bring the accolades to Poliça that their fans thought Give You the Ghost deserved. It's an album I shrugged off at first and little by little I became attached to their songs until I finally bought their album and eventually saw them live. Now, months later I still find myself going back to that album on a regular basis. Now we've got a new song to lust after.

Belgian Fog - Wait For Help

Robert Dale started a solo project under the name Belgian Fog and currently has this one song to his name. Something about it keeps me coming back.

Siôn Russell Jones - So Long

Here's a little ditty to keep you smiling. Siôn Russell Jones from Cardiff crafts little pop songs that you'll be humming along to in no time. site // facebook
