Published Oct 21, 2013It's hard to believe that we're already approaching the end of October, with Halloween just over a week away. If you've been too busy draping your house with cobwebs or planning that perfect costume to find good music, we've got you covered. See below for some of our favourite music from the past week, then visit Exclaim!'s Music/Video section every week for even more musical awesomeness.
Just last week, Toronto blues act July Talk released an expanded version of their self-titled debut album. We've got a full stream of the record, including four new tracks, for your listening pleasure. On a quieter note, Radical Face is set to release Family Tree: The Branches, the second in a planned trilogy of albums, on October 22. The quiet, swelling album is streaming in full now.
Meanwhile, Montreal's Besnard Lakes recently released a new music video for their Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO track "Color Yr Lights." Watch as the character in the video struggles to maintain a grip on reality. If something even louder is to your taste, sludge metal act Biipiigwan are gearing up to release their sophomore album Something For Everyone; Nothing For Anyone tomorrow(October 22). In the meantime, you can sample all the ferocious vocals and heavy licks with a full album stream. Vancouver folk act the Fugitives are sounding more optimistic with Everything Will Happen. Find out if the band succeeds in their mission of bluegrass enlightenment with our full stream of their album.
Finally, Don Brownrigg juggles a bunch of genres on his latest record, drawing from pop, folk, jazz and rock, among others. We've got a full stream of It Takes All Kinds (to make this world, I find), which will be out tomorrow (October 22) via MapleMusic Recordings.
