Published Oct 05, 2009Monday has rolled around yet again and we all know what that means: Exclaim!'s Click Hear section has some sweet tunes to get your eardrums going for the week.
First off, we have Sleepless Nights providing us with a cover of Bryan Adams's "Run to You," which features some hushed, lo-fi goodness that will destroy every preconception you've ever had about Adams's music. It's only one of many covers by the Halifax band, who've been releasing them through their blog.
The somewhat soulful alternative pop sound of the Noisettes, who released their new album, Wild Young Hearts, last week, is demonstrated with "Upset Lockdown," while Rich Kidd and Junia T. throw "Hypnotic" into the mix, proving they have tons of swagger with their joint track.
Montreal's Kid Koala is back with his new project, the Slew, and the album, 100%, with Seattle's Dynomite D, infuses turntablism with rock'n'roll for a remarkably pure hybrid. Lastly, Brooklyn's Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson returns with Summer of Fear and lead track "The Sound," which comes loaded keyboards and plaintive vocals as crashing guitars and wailing solos fly overhead.
