Published Nov 11, 2013Last week was a hard week for musicians, but a good week for new music. To fill you in on what you may have missed, we've collected the most played albums and songs from the past seven days in our Music/Video roundup below. Read about the past week's biggest below, then head to our Music/Video section for even more awesome music.
Death From Above 1979's Sebastien Grainger is set to release Yours to Discover tomorrow (November 12), but until then, you can get a taste of it with "The Streets Are Still a Mess," the groovy, high-energy and shape-shifting track.
Toronto's Pkew Pkew Pkew (gunshots) are also set to drop an album: their debut, Glory Days. Stream the album now to hear the collection of rocking sing-alongs and little subtlety. Also out tomorrow (November 12) is Vancouver outfit Tough Age's self-titled debut album, via Mint Records. We're streaming it now in its full, tight, surf-punk glory.
Genre-straddling Fredericton, NB band the Belle Comedians will release their Charlotte EP today (November 11), but you can hear the band playing melodic folk ballads, shimmering pop numbers and more on the website now. Then, check out the haunting first single from HSY's Anna Mayberry, a.k.a. Anamai. "Altar Coals" sets an eerie tone with Mayberry's reverbed vocals and hypnotic guitar melody.
Last, but certainly not least, Dev Hynes, performing as Blood Orange, will release his latest album, Cupid Deluxe, on November 12. Until then, Hynes has uploaded the entire album to YouTube. Check it out to sample the tropical beats, killer instrumental grooves and soulful vocals, plus guest spots from Dirty Projectors, Chairlift's Caroline Polachek, rapper Despot, producer Clams Casino and more.
