Jay Pollock 'Sunflower' (album stream)
Toronto songwriter Jay Pollock's Facebook page lists his genre as "creepy dinner music" and his influences as "coffee, gin and tonic, insomnia." Interested in hearing what that sounds like? You can now find out by streaming his album Sunflower ahead of its release on July 10.

Pollock delivers his lyrical songs in deep croon, while he and his band keep the arrangements groove-centric and punchy. They delve into jazziness on "Bellwoods," while "The Good Old Days" shows off Pollock's guitar chops, and "The Mess" and "Timbuktwelve" end the mostly rocking album on a folksy acoustic note.

Hear the self-produced effort below. Pollock will launch the album with a Toronto gig at Supermarket on July 10.
