Published Feb 11, 2013Got the Monday blues? We hear you. It's why, every Monday, we cheer ourselves up by posting some rad tunes and videos from the past week. Get consoled with our favourites below, and don't forget to drop by the Music/Video section for your daily musical pick-me-up.
Toronto indie rockers Magneta Lane previewed their Witchrock EP, which finds the trio returning to recorded music after a few years of silence. The band will release the EP February 12 through eOne Music. The Steve Adamyk Band's entire upcoming third album is also streaming now. The garage-inflected pop-punk set is simply titled Third, and is delivered with the kind of ass-kicking gusto typical of the genre.
Up and coming Norwegian hard rockers Kvelertak have recorded a pretty sweet clip for new single, "Bruane Brenn," in which a bunch of kids rock out and then grow up to become (gasp!) the band itself. The song will be featured on their Roadrunner Records debut Meir, set to be released on March 26.
Canuck indie darlings Stars released a free compilation of tracks to promote their upcoming tour, titled You Guys Are Awesome, which features one track each from their opening acts Cold Specks, Yukon Blonde, Said the Whale and Milo Greene.
Finally, there's a new video from Vancouver's Slow Learners, for their song "Party Police." The track is the B-side on their Habit 7-inch, to be released on February 15 through their frontman's label, Perfect Master Records.
