Published May 13, 2013Once again, we've rifled through all the new album streams, free downloads and music videos of the past week and compiled our top picks for your listening pleasure. Catch up with some old friends and make some new acquaintances in our weekly Music/Video roundup below, then head on over to our Music/Video section to hear all the latest releases.
Since signing with Arts & Crafts in early 2012, BC synth-pop quartet Gold & Youth have been gaining momentum in the Canadian music scene. Their debut full-length, Beyond Wilderness, doesn't hit shelves until May 14, but you can stream the whole album in full right now.
Speaking of full-length debuts, Brooklyn pop duo MS MR are set to release their first LP, Secondhand Rapture, tomorrow (May 14), but you can stream the album in its entirety here on Exclaim.ca. Don't forget to catch the pair as they swing north of the border for two Canadian dates on their upcoming headlining tour.
Thee Silver Mt. Zion and Set Fire to Flames contributor Rebecca Foon releases her new recording project Saltland's debut LP May 14, as well, but we've been streaming the ambient chamber pop hybrid online for the past week. The same goes for Leah Abramson's folk outfit the Abramson Singers, who release their new album tomorrow, too.
Literary-minded ambient musician Loscil's four-song collection City Hospital was released last year as a companion piece to Malcolm Lowry's novella Lunar Caustic. It quickly sold out once the literati caught on, but you can still stream the work online in full.
And finally, Alexisonfire alum Dallas Green's fourth full-length as City and Colour is still a month away, but to tide you over until its June 4 release, you can listen to the title track from The Hurry and the Harm.
