Talent Tuesday – Canadian Releases – February 28, 2012
A bit different from last week, lots to choose from this week.
Teenage Kicks, a rock band out of Toronto released an album today titled “Be On My Side”. They play an energetic rock style, utilizing all 5 members. I definitely enjoyed the attached track. This is their second album. Stop by their home page.
Next up is a new album from Plants and Animals titled “The End Of That”. They are and indie/ alternative band out of Montreal, with some Halifax added to the mix. They have recorded since 2005, this being their 5th release. The following is off the album. Good tune, consider it downloaded.
Song For Love
Singer songwriter Rose Cousins released “We Have Made A Spark” today.
Born in Prince Edward Island, Rose has carved a nice place in Canadian folk music. This album is her 5th release. I have attached a live version of “All The Time It Takes To Wait”. The music starts at the 1:24 mark. Very nice song. She is with Royal Wood at the piano.
All The Time It Takes To Wait
My last Canadian release this week comes from Toronto band Memoryhouse.
My last song for this weeks new releases is not a new release. I heard this song the other day and I hit instant like. The band is Graffiti6 and the song is titled, simply, “Free”. Great tune. The song is off the recent release called “Colours”. They are out of London in the UK and are breaking out in a big. It seems their music is everywhere on TV now. Songs have been featured on CSI: NY, Grey’s Anatomy, Football Wives, One Tree Hill and Covert Affairs. An early candidate for the top 10 of 2012.
