Published Nov 09, 2009It may be Monday, but there's no reason to feel glum. After all, you can find all the week's unearthed musical gems in Exclaim!'s Click Hear section.
First up, we have the latest track from respected Toronto MC Saukrates, who's paired up with Andreena Mill. The song, titled "Hot Like the Summer," is an affecting story of familial struggle and perseverance told over a haunting, sampled beat.
And then we have the latest from Lethbridge, AB power poppers Moby Dicks, whose track "Ballad of the Red Dog" from their new seven-inch is a frivolous but fantastic ode to their favourite hot dog joint. We're also streaming "Click My Finger" (Poirier Remix), newcomer Erup's most recent remixed single, which, despite radio's reluctance to play dancehall, has made major waves on both radio stations and on the Billboard chart.
MC Kam Moye, formerly known as Supastition, has returned with a track from his new album Splitting Image. The song is called "Forever Fresh," and features Moye expressing his contempt for major labels over an engaging boom-bap sonic backdrop. And finally, we also suggest checking out the song "Bad Thing" by Vancouver softies Woolworm, whose style of music the band lovingly call "blanket rock" in reference to their contemplative mix of twee, indie rock, and the good kind of emo.
