Starting things off this week is a new video from slow-disco duo Gold Zebra. Taken from this year's self-titled release, the visuals for "Drift Away" put a decidedly gruesome spin on the beloved winter sport of figure skating, inspired by the '80s cult horror flick Curtains.
London, ON party punks Wasted Potential tipped their hats to their hometown with their video for their self-titled EP cut "Two Pumps and a Quiver." Loading up their van with an excessive amount of pizza, the friendly five-piece drive around to share a slice and a beer with their fellow locals, visiting hometown breweries, skate shops and even a few front porches.
Maritimes MC Cam Smith wrote his latest record, Cannon, while dealing with the death of his grandfather in 2013. In a statement, the Dartmouth native says the effort honours his grandfather in a creative way, while also giving the people "something they could party to." Further west, Manitoba roots trio the Crooked Brothers look to captivate listeners with their rich brand of folk music on their new release Thank You I'm Sorry. From a single harmonica to their three-part vocal harmonies, the band's knack for incorporating a vast amount of instrumentation also works in their favour when blending folk, blues and rock'n'roll.
Finally, listen to a stream of the latest instalment in Miracle Fortress's single series, titled "Even in America." Described by the electronic artist as his "bizarro Super Bowl halftime show song," the cinematic track is "supposed to be a kind of absurd edifice, an impenetrable wall of glitter."
