Published Sep 02, 2013We here at Exclaim! know it can be a lot of work to find good music online. But this Labour Day, kick up your feet and let us do the heavy-lifting, as we present our weekly Music/Video roundup. Once again, we've dug deep to compile a list of our favourite album streams, music videos and songs from the past week, but don't forget to keep an eye on Exclaim!'s Music/Video section every week for even more new tunes.
Battle Axe warrior Madchild has been killing it the past few months thanks to his debut solo LP, Lawn Mower Man, and its string of accompanying music videos. Now, the underground MC has another one to add to the list, with the Castlevania-inspired "Blood Beast" clip. Watch the West Coast rhyme-slinger do his thing in the studio-filmed album cut.
Eclectic Winnipeg pop ensemble Royal Canoe's long-awaited debut, Today We're Believers, doesn't hit shelves until tomorrow (September 3), but you can stream the album in full while you wait for a hard copy. If Canuck-themed folk rock is more your style, listen to B.A. Johnston's 17-track Mission Accomplished in anticipation of tomorrow's (September 3) album release.
Hip-hop heavy-hitter Eminem gives us a taste of his highly anticipated new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (due November 5), with the rap rock-ready "Berserk," while Ladyhawk channels crappy karaoke and mid-30s malaise in the video for No Can Do's "Window Pane."
Finally, Montreal-based singer-songwriter J.F. Robitaille has been breaking hearts with his folk-tinged pop since the release of his 2006 debut, The Blood in My Body, but after a two year absence, the self-assured storyteller is back with another set of introspective acoustic numbers. You can stream his newest LP, Rival Hearts, in its entirety on Exclaim.ca right now.
