Published Nov 28, 2011This week, as usual, Exclaim! has rounded up the best of our Click Hear section, offering up a handy collection of new tracks, videos and album streams. Here are just a few of the recent highlights.
First up, Montrealers Silver Dapple debuted their first full-length album English Girlfriend, and you can hear the entire fuzz-pop-laden effort now. The record hits shops this week, so if you're curious about what's in store, give this one a spin.
Serge Gainsbourg's aspiring musician son Lulu has put together a tribute for his father, fittingly titled From Gainsbourg to Lulu. The album drops November 29, but you can check out album cuts from various artists like Rufus Wainwright, Marianne Faithfull, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, Shane McGowan and Iggy Pop now at Exclaim.ca.
Additionally, Chicago hip-hopper Lupe Fiasco released his Friend of the People mixtape last week. Featuring a track entitled "WWJD He'd Prolly LOL Like WTF!!!" and a sample of M83's "Midnight City," this mix will definitely be an interesting listen. And Hamilton, ON riff rock newbies Monster Truck have shared a new video for "Love Attack" off their The Brown EP, which features an eclectic audience rocking out to the band's live show.
Toronto alt-gospel collective Bruce Peninsula also released a new video for the song "Pull Me Under," off this fall's Open Flames LP. It's a kaleidoscopic clip that manages to incorporate elements of nature and the band members, all the while offering up some really cool visuals. Last but not least, garage rockers the Mark Inside's new video for "Shots from a Broken Bottle" also dropped this week, portraying some pretty gruesome violence -- or at least enough to get it banned from MuchMusic's rotation.
