Published Feb 25, 2013Oscar talk has dominated the headlines lately, so you might not have heard the best music of the week being drowned out by cinema chatter. Below are some of the best songs and videos this past week had to offer, and there were a lot. After you're done here, don't forget to head over to our Music/Video section for even more new releases.
Vancouver hardcore troupe Baptists just released their new album, Bushcraft. On it, they deliver 11 tracks of trashing guitars and fast-paced, rumbling drum beats, and you can stream the whole album right now. Fellow Vancouverites Boombox Saints released a new video this week as well, with a clip for the title track from their latest album For the Moment. This black and white clip features the group performing behind red accents, alongside red lipstick-wearin' honeys.
To promote their new covers EP, The Road to Massey Hall, as well as their Massey Hall show in March, Whitehorse duo Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland are releasing a handful of live performance clips. The latest release was their cover of Blue Rodeo's "Dark Angel," featuring the couple with only their guitars and a microphone to share. And despite the fact that Atoms for Peace's long-awaited release date for their debut LP, Amok, isn't until tomorrow (February 26), we previewed the entire album a week early.
Last but not least is We Are Wolves, who gave also gave us a sneak peek of their record, La Mort Pop Club, prior to its February 26 release date. The Montreal rock band promised a new minimalist approach on this album, and now you can hear it for yourself.
