Published Aug 26, 2013According to a study, over 1,826 petabytes of information are carried out every day on the Internet (the equivalent of over 1.9 billion gigabytes). How much of that is music, we don't know, but to help make sense of all that data, we've dug through some of the recent album streams, music videos and songs on the web to find you the best new music available. Take a look at some of our favourite music from the past week below, then visit Exclaim!'s Music/Video section every week for even more great tunes.
First up, countrified pop singer-songwriter Neko Case has finally broken her four-year silence with The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. The roots rocker's newest solo disc doesn't hit shelves until September 3, but you can stream her upcoming full-length in its entirety until then on Exclaim.ca.
Experimental husband and wife duo Andrew Whiteman and Ariel Engle (a.k.a. AroarA) turn the folk rock genre on its head with their nine-track concept LP, In the Pines. It's based on American poet Alice Notley's 2007 book of the same name, about a woman undergoing Hepatitis C treatment. Find out if their creative endeavour paid off by listening to their debut album ahead of tomorrow's (August 27) release on Club Roll Music.
Old-timey hard-rock luddite Black Joe Lewis's newest LP, Electric Slave, won't be in stores until tomorrow (August 27), but in the meantime you can stream the whole album on whatever digital device you decide, while Ottawa electro-pop outfit Fevers' new full-length, No Room for Light, is streaming in full ahead of tomorrow's (August 27) release.
Vancouver's BESTiE gained some new fans back in January thanks to the tropical jangle of their summery single "Pineapple," but follow-up video "Asleep on the Bus" finds the fanciful four-piece awaking from their daydream to a nightmarish commute. Watch the danceable indie troupe as they try and escape their surreal surroundings, and look out for their upcoming EP later this fall.
