Kat Edmonson - "Oh My Love"

Heaven, I'm in heaven And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak And I seem to find the happiness I seek When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

Dawn Pemberton - "Deeper"

More goodness from Do Right! Music. It's truth in advertising from those folks as they always come correct - this time with a teaser from the forthcoming Say Somethin' LP from Vancouver soul-singer Dawn Pemberton. You'll have to wait til just before Halloween for the full-length though as it drops October 28th.

This Will Destroy You - "Dustism"

If it doesn't destroy you, it will certainly make your day. Another Language is another stunner from TWDY. Out September 16th on Suicide Squeeze.

Wildbirds & Peacedrums - "The Offbeat"

more like Wildbirds and FUNKYdrums, amirite?

Fire/Works - "Elephants"

I cannot get enough of this song. I hope the Shenanigans this Montreal duo get up to rival "Elephants."

Stephen David Heitkotter - "Cadillac Woman"

I have heard the future, and it is the past. The always-on-point-and-definitely-hyphenized Now-Again Records have reissued an obscure psych rock classic (apparently only 25 copies originally pressed) from one-time Road Runners drummer Stephen David Heitkotter. Schizophrenia cut his career short and his record Heitkotter under the moniker Black Orchid became a whisper and an echo.

Listening to what Now-Again has released as Black Orchid under Heitkotter's own name, it's a shame that this didn't achieve the acclaim it deserved in its day, but damn is it still impressive.

Black Orchid is available for purchase here. Check out "Cadillac Woman" via Soundcloud below.

Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me"

Winnipeggers! Mark your calendar for September 23rd. That's when Alvvays come to town as tour support for Fucked Up at the West End Cultural Centre. DO NOT come to this show late or you'll miss some gems from the band's self-titled album including this track, the video for which dropped today.
