Published Nov 24, 2014Our Music/Video Roundup returns this week with the most popular album streams, music videos, singles, remixes and more from the past seven days. Take a look at our picks below, and be sure to stop by our Music/Video section for more new music and videos every day.
Don't let the name fool you: Toronto's Christian Punk Band aren't writing punk rock riffs in the name of the lord. Headed up by former Teenage Kicks guitarist Christian Turner, the three-piece band deliver "catchy, fuzzed-out, punk-tinged jams" without one hint of satire on their self-titled debut.
Post-hardcore outfit Circa Survive have returned with their fifth studio record, Descensus. Their first release on Sumerian Records, the new disc is packed with "theatrical vocals," "space station six-stringing" and washes of strings and electronics.
Gearing up for a record release in March of next year, Prairie indie rockers Rah Rah have delivered a seasonally appropriate preview with the crunchy guitar riffs and bittersweet lyrics of "Good Winter." Elsewhere, Vancouver pop rock powerhouses Mother Mother revisit their roots as a folk trio, turning the dark electronics of "Kept Down" into a melancholic acoustic ballad.
Finally, Montreal's Nancy Pants have released their debut full-length, Total Nancy Pants. Described as a blend of "teenage '60s garage pop and weird '90s punk," the 11-song collection is a "bright, fun and catchy" affair.
