After producing everyone from Kanye to Kardinal Offishall, Nottz finally takes the mic to pay tribute to the late J. Dilla, with "Shine So Brite" offering equally powerful lyrics and backbeats.
Hailing from our capital city, grindcore champs Fuck the Facts deliver an 11-minute Unnamed EP of creative explosive fury, while the Funkees' remastered "Slipping Into Darkness" is the perfect '70s throwback, displaying classic African funk rock from this group of Nigerian expats.
"The Rear Guard" is an intriguingly earnest teaser for the new album from Old Man Luedecke, out March 30. The combination of his banjo singalong act with fellow Canadian strummer Steve Dawson offers thoughtfully textured music that'll keep you tapping along all the way through.
For some soothing chords, stream "The End," off the debut from Peasant (aka Damien DeRose). When Shady Retreat drops tomorrow (March 2), it'll do so with a skillful simplicity deserving of repeat listens.
